      Hi Randy
      I've been using a "KUUMA" for many years now and use it a lot.

        Whichever one you like best for the amount of money you want to spend! -- Sorry, just being flip.

        But it is kind of like asking which is better, Ford or Chevy. Mercruiser of Volvo Penta? Etc. KUUMA and Magma are both good and have their strong points, depending on model. We went with a Magma as one of our good friends had one for years and swore by it. Ours has worked Well for us, but not as well for others. Another fellow boater has a nice Kuuma.

          I use the Kuuma stow n go because of its size and stoability. I pull it out and set it on the bait table at the transom, been working great and I use it at home too.

              I think you couldn't go wrong with either Kuuma or Magma. You may find that Kuuma is a better value because I believe you are paying more for the Magma name. I have a Kuuma 216 I believe (with the extra warming rack). It does seem to cook at one temperature though no matter where you set the dial, hot/burn.

                    I have the Magma. Can't say anything good about it. The slightest breeze can blow the fire out. To use it, I have to create a wind block with tin foil. Works sometimes and some times not. When I spend well north of $300 for a grill I expect to work as is. After all, these are designed to be used on a boat.

                      Plus 1 on the baby Weber. Tried a bunch, they all sucked until I got the Weber.

                        Anything but round, there is/was corn on the cob and a medium rare tri tip resting on the bottom of a secluded anchorage. I like Magma, rectangular shaped.

                          I use the Dickinson grill out of Canada. Very good and heavy gauge SS and cost less than similar magma. Fishery has them and Sure as well.

                            Over the years I have had a Dickinson, a Magma Newport and a Kuuma, none of them really got hot enough for my liking. I went with a Magma Kettle party size grill like this https://www.westmarine.com/buy/magma...rill--15724933 several years ago and must say this is the best by far. Gets really hot if wanted and will never slow down or flame out in high winds. Easy to clean/maintain also.

                              I've used Sea BBQ since 1992. The reason is I was in stainless steel manufacturing for most of my working life. The high polish BBQs look real nice in the store but once they are heated they look like crap.

                              Sea BBQs are built using grained stainless steel. A bottle of Brasso and a red or brown Scotch Brite pad using it with the grain, you can bring a Sea BBQ back to as new condition. That's not possible on high polished stainless.

                              As above, they are made in Canada by Dickinson.

                                looks like they have porcelain grills. Any issues with that?
