Two Force 100 bbq's now, both are trash. What is a better option?
So over both my boats now I've been less than impressed with the Force 10 BBQ that came with them. They each had slightly different regulators, slightly different grilles, but are both called a "Force 10" as per the metal ID tag.
My complaint? Anything over about a 2kt wind will blow them out. I sit there with a BBQ lighter and constantly click it to re-light the damn things. To give you an idea, on a full propane cylinder, with 2kt or less wind at anchor (I mean barely enough to even keep me set back on the rode, sometimes not even that much), to cook a hamburger I am relighting the unit about 20-30 times. Not only is cooking a tedious endeavor, but it's dangerous when it blows out (quietly) and then just leaks propane till I notice.
What other BBQ options are out there (propane only, not interested in charcoal) that are worth replacing these units with?
PS: It's not a maintenance item, I replaced seals and adjusted the breather plate, I took a filament of wire and cleaned the burners out perfectly, nothing seems to work, these things are headed for the trash and I need a better option for 2019.
EDIT: Didn't notice but I listed it as a 100 not a "Force 10" in the title. Not sure how to fix that.
Some youtube videos, nothing fancy
