My boat heater doubles as a cooking surface but I've never cooked on the boat. What do you make on the boat and how do you do pots and pans?

I have a little portable propane BBQ that I used for years. *It's the kind you screw a green propane canister into. *Popular for tailgaiting or shore fishing. *However, it takes up too much space and grease falls through the bottom so I stopped using it.

Last year I bought a small one burner stove. *It is probably 10 inches x 10 inches. *It also runs on the small green propane canisters and it's small enough that I can tuck it out of the way when it's not being used. *I always keep a small skillet on board along with a small pot. *They get rinsed in the water after each use and wiped down with papertowels. *I prefer easy meals when boating so things like hot dogs w/ chili or smoked sausages work well. *A great breakfast meal are the Jimmy Dean breakfast skillet meals. *They cook up easy and require no prep work.

Thanks, breakfast was the meal most motivating me to think about cooking on the boat. I haven't seen the skillet meals. I was thinking about wrapping the mcmuffins in foil and finding a way to heat them.

I've used a small burner that screws to a normal propane cannister on a boat several times. A must for morning coffee, For breakfast I cook fryed spam and eggs, or a fry up a can of corned beef hash with some eggs. Quick and easy.

I have cooked before,not exactly a gourmet meal. :) No pots & pans, then I would have to plumb a dishwasher too. :D

i built a trypod and mounted it where the seat goes. that way my little webber doesn't burn the boat. it sits about 6" off the deck

I have one of these bbqs left over from the sailing days. It can double as a one burner stove. It mounts to the rail and hangs over the water. We bbq with the family once in a while.
