I would like to find a small propane bbq for my Ciera. Not sure where to stow it when not in use? They do tend to smell a tad, especially if stowed inside the cabin in summer. Anyone know of a good unit?

I have a medium size Magma Newport that I got at West Marine; the bbq works very well and has lasted for years. It also stows nicely in the engine compartment of my 2455 and again in my 2850. Of coure I remove the propane cylinder to do that ...

I have the Magma Kettle Grill. I mount it to the rail and when not in use, it stows very nicely under the deck seat. No smell, no mess. I just take off the propane bottle and slide it away. It has been in service for 3 years now with no issues. :)

We have the mid-size Force 10 grill mounted on the transom. It stays there, we don't put it away. Used to have the Magma Kettle 2 and just hated it.

boy, the user reviews don't sound too good. I wonder if that is why they are giving them away for $80 off.

Tally,

Look for a Q that is easy to clean. Look for one that stays lit in a breeze. I bought the smaller Canadian made SiPort Q. It's OK. It lives in a box in the cave when not in use. Watch out for the propane cylinders. Some leak when you remove them from the Q.

Craig brings up a VERY good point, I have had this happen all the time using portable torches, which is why I now drag my B-tank torch everywhere. Sometimes the valve on the little 1-pounders gets skitchy and you can try screwing it back in and unscrewing it, but sometimes they don't want to seat. I have never caught one leaking spontaneously, but I don't trust the Schrader valve that is suposed to stop the propane from leaking off-I would think about getting a cap for the bottle if you can find one (I mean a screw on cap, not the plastic BS one) for the bottle or carrying a cheap torch that you can screw onto the bottle to seal it if it misbehaves on you. else you may be unable to store your grill without losing the remainder of the gas in the bottle (or worse).

I think the bottle thread pitch is even finer than a standard compression cap, but I'm not sure. If a compression cap DOES fit, please post!

It is finer. It's a 1"-20 POL cap needed for propane bottles. (fine compression is 1"-24)

POL nuts are for the big bottles (like the 20#, we are talking about the little portable bottles)- the POL spec is a left hand thread (I'm sure you remember those older bottles well) and it's .885 x 14 and the thread form is NGO (National Gas Outlet). No, I didn't know that from memory, looked it up! :)

Rather than speculate, I threw a pitch gauge on it and it appears to be a 1x22 straight V thread. Of course, there are only five threads so it COULD be a 20, it's hard to tell on the rusty cylinder I have, I did find the following and they think it's 1x20 and sell a cap, so I'm assuming it is the right cap, appears to have a lanyard and a gasket too:

http://www.adventurerv.net/capatee-camper-p-1314.html

So, I'd start with that and hope it fits. I can't imagine there would be a 20 and a 22, if you also say it's a 20 then I'll assume my bottle just isn't threaded that well :)

Five bucks ain't bad- might as well get a few.

I have the Force 10 grill. I seem to remember reading of a complaint or two about it (can't remember specifics), but I love it. It stays lit, and although it's not a huge grill (at all), it's certainly big enough for a two-person meal.

If you're looking to get extravagant, get something bigger. And FYI: I dont mount mine. I store it in the transom compartment of my 3055 Ciera. And it has retractable legs (which I love). It sits perfectly (very stable) on every marina dock box I've seen.

Brian C has some round SS BBQ's at the marina in Elbow that are reasonably priced and apparently work very well.

I bought the Magma "Newport" grill.
I also got the pedestal base for it.
I mounted it under the Swimstep lid.
It's out of the way and works great.

Then I made a plywood board it sets in, down in the engine bay for it to stow away and the pedestal goes in the Transom locker.

I am dying to get a grill to mount on the back of my boat… However I am scared to death to have hot grease damage the boat.. Do any of you have any problems with dripping grease from these bbq’s???

Thanks
Ray

Mine has a pretty decent drip tray, which I plan to cover with foil.
