With 50 years of boating and grilling experience, a charcoal magma, 2 propane magmas, several weber joes other various grills I would recommend a WeberQ 1200 or 2200.

Yes, they are propane. Charcoal and boats do not get along really well. Even if you grill on the beach you still have to clean it out and stow afterwards. The WeberQ heats evenly, gives great grill marks, does not blow out in the wind, the cast aluminum body cools quickly and the price is nice.

You can find them in assorted colors and they make covers for them. Check them out at Lowes. Not sure if Home Depot carries them.

Our first year here at the lake on July 4th they always put on quite a fireworks show so we decided to set up early and tailgate... portable table top propane filled with brats and burgers. Apparently not done here and everyone was asking if we needed help on account of the smoke rising from the deck of the pontoon....
We haven't done it since.
I do have a thought of anchoring in the middle of the lake grilling and selling dogs and burgers during the weekend. Lots of hungry beer drinkers.

I'll second this vote. A weber Q is hard to beat for price, safety and ease of use. I personally would rather not have to deal with charcoal, pellets, etc. when I'm on the boat. The weber Q will be safe, cook great, be low maintenance, and let you spend your time enjoying your day on the water.

Not a boater but tend to agree. The cleanup (and waiting for coals to fully cool) make charcoal a pain when you can’t just close things up and walk away. Pellets would be my choice if I wanted to do some smoking too as it is easier to delay cleanup. If it’s mostly grilling the Weber is a great option

Boat fires are very real...and they are typically hard to retreat from. Use caution with coals or embers of any kind.

Weber Q2200. I personally would not risk charcoal on a boat, or want to deal with it for shore lunch either.

I think I'll take your advice on the Weber Q and maybe get a mini Max BGE for smoking on shore. I usually smoke and grill on the beach. So charcoal or pellets isn't such a big deal. The BGE could be fun....
