The Webber Q's have a grease catch can. These don't IIRC.

I had a magma and sold it cause it was a hassle as oil would always get on the boat. Driving back to dock the oil would spill etc. has anyone used a griddle similar to the below? Really considering since it’s easier to clean and avoid oil spills.

Bud, no opinion is wrong, heh... and you are spot on that oil can and does spill, but if you are looking for the perfect way to cook, spill free, well...there is a better solution.

Get off the boat....go to a table... eat, let someone else cook.. lol

Seriously though, that griddle sure looks nice, but all and any food you would cook on that, can just as easily spill. Not trying to say you are wrong by any means, totally right, but it is about how you cook, not as much what you cook with....it is also about what you cook, and where, etc.

I was thinking the exact same way you are, grease can and will be an issue. When I was in the Navy, I was carrying a couple 5gallon buckets to the aft engine room down some stairs. I spilled a little, slipped, fell, landed down below with 10 gallons of oil. They asked me, "Did you miss a step?" to which I replied, "Nope, hit every damn one of them!"

One drop can kick your butt. Gotta plan, think, plan more, and develop a means for getting it done in a way that allows you to minimize or avoid spills.

GL! Show us pictures of whatever ya get!

This thread was about perfect timing. After one to many PBJs we got the Magma Cabo grill and level lock rod holder. Cannot wait to have a decent meal this weekend. Do you all secure it while traveling or what. I was going to put it in my transom vertical rod holders and just put a bungee over the top to keep lid from flying open or is it best to store it in the console on the floor

I store mine in the Magma bag in the aft fish box until needed. After use, I clean the debris, the grease and wipe it down and store it. The less bounce and salt air/water the longer they last.

Overall i have been happy with my Magma. Have it mounted with a v-lock. I already had the mount on the motor well for my cutting board so it was an easy/obvious choice. The grill has a grease trap so i have never really had an issue but if it does spill it goes into the motor well and is easy to clean up.

For those of you saying that the magma doesn't get hot enough i agree, well use to agree. I found that if it was windy it just wouldn't heat up like i wanted it to. I cant remember why but for some reason i started to look for a spare valve/regulator (the blue thing the propane tank screws into). I realized they have different flow rate versions. The bigger grills obviously need a higher flow rate than the smaller grills. I bought the valve that was the next flow rate up than then one that came with my grill and it really helped.

Most boats (new and old) do have a "bazillion rod holders" scattered around the gunnels and behind the leaning post's. That is how and why we created these cup holders that fit into rod holder sockets. Way to many (including brand new) boats have rod holders peppered around, but there are very few options for parking your favorite libation. These allow for quick placement when fishing, just a quick tug and drop in into an open rod holder. Plus when underway or trolling, these self leveling cup holders do not spill......hence the ballasted base with gimbaled action.
Thanks for the compliment regarding the "NEAT IDEA" all our customers tend to agree. The feedback has been wonderful.

Nothing perfect for all. I went with Charbroil grill2go infra red cheapo grill. Like $90 delivered and got the soft bag carry all case for $45. It is what it is. Probably use it 5x max @ year

Doesn’t seem like there is any love for charcoal on this thread. I have the charcoal version of the magma, it was a lot less expensive, gets hot, is easy to clean because you dump everything and the grease seems to just mix with the ash. I pre portion the charcoal in foodsaver bags and keep a few in the boat so it is dry and ready to go.

For me, I only grill at the sandbar, so the time for charcoal to get ready is a non issue. I could see the gas being nice if you were actually trying to fish and cook at the same time.

i think the big fear with charcoal is ash and soot blowing all over the boat, or a hot coal landing on deck unbeknownst to the griller. At least it is for me.

I dont ever ever feel like eating elaborate hot meals when I'm on the boat, but I have to Say this thread is making me rethink my position. I think a lot depends on how you use your boat.

Personally, I would be a LOT less likely to have a fire over the fuel lines on the transom than worry about ash.. heh

For me, I plan to use it on the port or starboard rod holders. It is a luxury to have, and you don't need it...unless you want to need it.. heh.. so.. to each their own.

On those slow days where all you are doing is helping the kids have fun, sure is nice to take a break and cook some food

Tell that to your fuel vapour and escaped propane dear Sir. They both care about Google very much.


But I googled it as you asked and had lots of fun watching it

How much fuel vapor are you experiencing on today's sealed tanks? Propane should be transported in a ventilated area.
