RE: Propane BBQ Grills

Hi to all,

Okay, before I spend 150.00 to 250.00 dollars on a BBQ grill for my boat. I thought I'd ask the folks here on their personal experiences and suggestions for a rail mounted propane BBQ grill. Let's say about 14" to 15" round, 160 to 170 Sq in of grill space. Also interested in using 1lb propane canister type. I'm kinda looking at Kuuma or Magna kettle type grills. However I'm open to other possible suggestions, like rectangular type grills. The plan is to use the grill at anchor or at the dock for the wife and I.

I've read a lot of reviews online, with a lot of "mixed" views on these type of BBQ grills. So I thought I'd ask the Regal boat "professionals". :D

Your experiences could include Wind induced flame outs, clean ups, grease catching, heat and temp control, would you buy it again, etc. You know the basic stuff.

For the record, I have a 1990 265 Regal Commodore

Thanks in advance, for your time and advice :-)

I have the largest magma kettle grill. I would not suggest the smaller one.

It works well, no issues. But parts are expensive, so take care of it, keep it clean, don't wait for grease to build up before cleaning it. Idepending say to clean it every day of use or every other day of use if you want it to stay looking new.

I have a magnum grill, my only beef is that it burns too hot at the lowest setting. Nothing better than cooking burgers, steaks or even corn on the cob while others are eating sandwiches.

Thanks folks, I appreciate the feedback. Nice pics too.

Those are some of the things I've read. I have a friend with one on a 28' Trojan, and he loves his. But he does get flame outs if the wind is above 10 knots.
That happens a lot on Lake Michigan, so a sheltered anchor is best for him.

Keep those cards and letters coming.

Thanks again for the help! :)

I decided to mount the magma grill at the corner of the swim platform (used a flush mount flag poll holder). All the grease goes overboard.
The wind is a issue, but the new round model lets you rotate the lid as an wind shield.
I attached a tether to it ..just in case it goes overboard when dismounting it.
To make things easier , we pre-cook every thing at home and use it to re-heat.
Nice to have a hot meal instead of sandwiches!

Have a great boating summer
