    Default Portable gas grill for the boat

    I've seen many of you guys use the Weber Q, but I found this grill at Lowes yesterday. It's lighter and a tab bit smaller and stainless steel.

    Does anyone use one? Good or bad? Or should I just get the Q100? I'm looking for something a tab bit smaller and lighter, but don't want to get something too cheap.

    Rob this is what I have.....wife bought it from Cabela's for way more money than 79... It was a fathers day gift though, used it all last year on the water, I think I'm going to convert it to a big propane bottle though....less little bottles to carry!

    Rob and Fishkiller: pretty sure you need to use a regulator if you hook up a big propane bottle to that stove or any little cylinder propane appliance, Buddy Propane Heaters makes one when you convert those, should be right with the hoses you get to connect for your grill.

    For $79 how can you go wrong? I don't think you could buy the LID for a Magma grill that price!

    How long do the smaller propane bottles last?

    I have a little Magma that looks just like that, It was a Christmas present. I bought the rod holder mount for it and its works good. I hate the little propane bottles, but really don't want a big tank on the boat.

    The little bottles last me 3-4 uses depending on how much I am doing. If I am trying to cook hamburgers or steaks or something where its going to be on for a while then a bit less. I usually am only cooking some shrimp, fish or bacon (yes I grill my bacon) so I use one bottle on a 3-4 day trip. I usually have a couple extra bottles stashed as my boat has plenty of room for those tiny bottles, a big bottle would get in the way.

    I just actually read your first post. For some reason when I responded early I didn't see it. Maybe should go back to eye doc. Sorry for posting something that wasn't really relevant to your question :-/

    Lol no worries. I was actually looking at the Q too. It's a great grill. Just a tad bit too big and heavy for me. I don't have the space like you do.

    Picked up this Stainless 2 years ago at Costco and really like it.
    It's warm enough to heat a griddle for bacon, eggs hash browns.
    The surface area is adequate when cooking for several adults.
    This will be our third season and both finish and burners seem to be holding up well.

    Rob must have bought the last one. I can't view the link. And I think I have been going about the food thing the wrong way. Last year I just bought a few snacks and some subs just before heading out of town. I gotta get a grill and do this boating thing the right way! You guys are making me hungry!!!

    Steve,

    Just a couple of snacks?

    I need to figure a mount for a grill on my boat. I have a small coleman grill that I've plopped on top of the cooler for grilling, but it's barely puts out enough heat.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Ok, your right, a whole bunch of snacks!! You never know you could get stranded out there.

    I definitely need to pick up a grill for this year.

    We eat great on the boat. I love making a good feast while on the water.

    I may have to spend the night on my boat tonight. I showed my wife pictures of your grills because my birthday is coming up and would't ya know the first thing she picked up on after all that great looking food was the mountain reflection in the flat calm bay! For some reason she is making it sound like I always make it sound like the weather and water conditions are always bad out in PWS. Oops!
