Boat Grill for 16Ft Aluminum Boat?

15 posts in this topic

Can anyone recommend a good boat grill for my Lund Rebel? I want to hook one up to the gunnels (or maybe the spare pedestal seat) while I am trolling. Nothing would be better that a nice hot dog or burger while trolling along!

I am worried about getting grease all over or setting the boat on fire. Anyone with experience grilling on a small boat...comments would be greatly appreciated.

I've been with guys that grilled in boats like yours before. They used small grills with 1 lb propane tanks set and put the grill on the floor of the boat on a piece of carpet or a rubber mat that could be rolled up when not grilling. A problem with gunwales or seat pedestals when you're talking about a small grill like that is if it's windy out you won't get much heat for cooking.

I use my MR Cooker/heater and 1 pound tanks for Cooking it also comes in handy on those cold fall/spring days if a little heat is needed!

I wouldn't recommend trolling while doing this we usually beach or anchor!

Weber BabyQ is what I have. A little spendy, but it has been on my Cresliner 1850 S/F a whole bunch of times. It has it's

own little drip pan and runs off the longer, one pound cylinders. It also has a push button igniter. A tall can of beans or veggies will fit in under the hood. Very portable

and light, with a big enough grill space for four big steaks

or eight hambugers. Been out on the ice a bunch too,in my

Otter Cabin. It would need to be set down on the floor, but would be very stable down there. I like the fact I can cable lock it up to a tree at the camp site. IMO, it is well made and durable. If you want to check, you could probably find

it on the net.

Once again...it looks like I came to the right place! Thanks for all the good ideas. Now I gotta go out to the garage and architect myself a solution!

Thank You!

I've seen grills made to hang on the gunwale and over the water. They've been around for years. Any drippage goes overboard, not in the boat. Hit the Cabela's HSOforum and type in "boat grill" in the search box. They have a rail mounted LP gas model. I don't see any reason to not use one, except only in flat water!

I carry a small charcoal unit with fold up legs. I just plan to beach the boat and grille around lunchtime. its good to get off the boat and strech the legs halfway through the day.

it even has a griddle on top if you want some early morning pancakes.

    • Nick they are all trash, your party included, until you figure that out you are no better than some blind Trump supporter.
    •   That was a long time ago.   The media has become far more partisan than it was at that time.   

    • You are starting to sound like a helpless snowflake in desperate need of big government to take away the burden of personal responsibility away from you. I try and take a big picture approach and not mico manage our laws based on political views outside of science or common sense.

      No one is advocating for drunk driving or murder to be legal but I guess that doesn't stop you from using wild assumptions without anything to back them up.

      All most of us are asking for is simple freedoms and choices and a government that stays out of the way. Having a bunch of drugs that kill and half of the legal and half of them illegal makes no sense. You either stand for personal freedom and responsibility across the board or you don't, picking and choose this stuff based on political leanings is about as backwards as it gets and you just end up looking like a complete hypocrite. Keeping drugs outlawed because people die is the same kind of reasoning people use to take away guns. All the while you are more likely to die from eating too much McDonalds, you simply can't outlaw stupid people or the things they do and expect that to work. We as a people need to stop trying to control things are completely out of our control, all it does is waste tons of money and time and it does a wonderful job of ruining people's lives.
    • I really don't like a president calling out news media outlets by name and whining about the media. Obama did it with FOX and talk radio and now Trump is doing it with CNN and the NYT's. It's one thing for each men's supporters to do it. But I don't recall GWB or Reagan or Carter calling out the media by name in public.   I don't buy the claim from some(nobody here) that doing such is a sign of a dictator(the same, btw, who cheered BHO doing it). It just makes a president look weak and whiny and looking for other's to blame for their own failures. Not that I'm a fan of the NYT's, but I do believe in freedom of the press even the press I personally don't care much for.   If you're an elected official, the press is supposed to be a thorn in your side
    •   This is what Del was probably talking about and yes he is right, we do have to pick a side or at least a candidate when we go to the polling booth but there is no need to defend every single move the candidate makes and vilify every single move the opposition makes.      I'm not sure what makes us think and behave the way we do, I didn't take enough psychology or anthropology courses in college to answer that question but I do know that to me it is even more repulsive than the small minded thinking that goes in to hating one sports team although they are basically the same as your chosen sports team. I can see liking and rooting for one sports team or political faction over another but the pure hatred for the opposite team is mind boggling to me.     These are the fine points of this article as I see it. Now would anyone like to have a discussion on these points?
    •   This paragraph is important because I believe that most people now when faced with a political discussion do indeed "turn off their intellect". It's the only way to get through the hypocrisy that arises when one chooses a side so completely.

    • 2.27.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   Ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition.   On the Minnesota side, we are seeing walleyes being caught  on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits. Canada is still producing but the crappie bite has been hot and cold within the last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold.   Until next week! Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • Anybody have any luck drawing Cardinals to wooden houses/shelves? Seen a few lately but would like to know if they work. It says 4 feet off the ground on walls behind shrubs is the placement but that sure seems like a cat food location to me.
    • Yeah I really thought C Lane would do well. Having him finish 102 kept me from doing really well!
