    Hi Guys,
    Looking to purchase a pedestal barbecue mounted on the swim platform. Any recommendations out there.
    Cheers Rob

    I bought a cheapie grill for my boat because I thought the Magmas were too expensive forbwhat you got. Used it once then bought a Magma. Love the Magma. I haven't experienced any of the issues with uneven heat or problems in wind that others have described. Highly recommended.

    Love my Magma. I can cook on it while travelling at 10 knots.

    My last boat had a grill and I used a pedestal mount that I put under the swim ladder lid. Worked great. Here's a photo of the mount. The square top piece screwed onto the bottom of the grill, the round base piece screwed permanently to the swim platform under the swim ladder lid, and the pole mount screwed into the base. We used it a lot. Our boating has changed now and we don't need a grill with the current boat.

    I'll nominate the Magma as well. We have a round version with push-button start. Works well, very durable, stores easily. I do have a custom-made storage bag for it which keeps it contained and the storage locker clean. The thing does cook HOT - I usually only need to have it on low. No issues with uneven cooking or wind.

    One of the good things about Magma is they have SO MANY MOUNTING OPTIONS. It's kind of absurd how many they support.
