First, I'm not adding a bbq at this time. Kids are too little and messy to eat anything was sauces or grease (burgers/dogs) on the boat.

That being said, I'm growing tired of sandwiches. We generally stop and get subway because the kids will eat it. One gets ham only and the other Turkey and cheese. Wife and i get sandwiches as well.

Any other ideas for on the hook lunches that are cold and relatively clean? Oh, and reasonably healthy.

Our go to is chicken from the local grocery store deli. Albertsons has been our favorite, but they sold there stores to a different chain locally so no longer exist. Now it's an arm of teh kroger group we load up from.
Not cold, but it is easy and very convenient.. Going with chicken fingers instead of the 8 piece special is more expensive, but easier to deal with.
might get a bit messy depending on the kids. Just as good cold as hot.

We use Romaine lettuce leaves instead of bread. Siracha mayo, mustard, sprouts, cold cuts of meat ( I cooked a tri-tip on the BBQ at home and thinly sliced it for our trip), tomato, cucumber, onion, and put it on the lettuce leaf in whatever combo you want. Keep in the cooler and make it whenever we get hungry. Sometimes we will use very thin cuts of salmon instead of meat.

Some good ideas.

I think I'll start cooking my own lunch meat again for me and keep the kids on sandwiches. I can use the meat in salads or just eat it without the bread. Maybe I'll buy some better rolls instead of going to subway for them.

There is no getting around kids and messes. Maybe we will even go to the marina and get some food there for something a little different. Their "grill" may be nothing more than a microwave. Will have to check it out.

I eat more on the boat and after we get home. But, I expend less energy because I am just sitting.

We cook burgers, dogs, and corn on the boat with our boys who have been as young as 7 and 4. We do place towels on the floor so any crumbs will land on them and not the carpet.

What grill is that?

I have the original ladder still on our boat which is not useable as a ladder. Maybe it will work as a grill mount.

Thanks for the info. I'm guessing one can get a bag to hold it. I'll have to explore that idea. It would sure open up the options.

Then I can drop a steak in the water like a certain un-named member.

Hey, I resemble that certain in-named member. James, your memory is just toooooo loooooooooooong.

We have a Magma grill like the one shown. I mounted it in a fishing rod holder when we bought the boat 8 years ago and it's never been removed except for an annual cleaning. I have a blue canvas bag an old girlfriend made for it that I still use to keep the dust off of it. And no, she wasn't the one I had to share a steak with! Smartazz! gunner2

One of my wife's favorite dishes to make for a cold snack later is to grill a salmon filet then chill it in the refrigerator. She makes up a couple of dips for it and we just take the chilled salmon and the dips out on the boat.

I go redneck and place my grill in a cardboard box that office paper comes in and store it in the head. When the box gets old, I grab another from work. When the head needs to be used, I take the box out.

First, get yourself a bunch of these:

[Linked Image]

--Then, make one look just like this one, with some ranch dressing in the middle...
Get another one out, and fill it with various sliced cheeses, crackers, and lunch meats, maybe some honey mustard or a cheese dip in the middle..
Get another one out, put in some strawberries, pineapple chunks, maybe some grapes, some dehydrated apricots-- and for the middle mix up a batch of half peanut butter/half chocolate syrup...

This could go on forever! laugh

These things are great, and stack nicely in ice chests smile

Frantic those containers are a great idea with endless possibilities.

We have the same tastes in food. Try smoked salmon with spicy guacamole on the romaine. You're welcome... :-)

Don't need a fancy Magma bag, Walmart laundry bag works just as well.

Assuming you get the bigger Magma kettle grill, a 14" diameter, deep, non-stick frying pan is a wonderful accessory that allows you to cook fancy without the mess associated with grilling. We make some amazing meals in ours, and being non-stick, cleanup is just a quick wipe with a paper towel and then lysol wipe to "sanitize". We store the pan in a cheap tennis racket cover. The envious comments we get at the sandbar while we make stuff like pan-seared scallops are always amusing.

We have a Kuuma Stow-N-Go grill that we use in a rod holder on the boat. When we go ashore to picnic, it goes with us and we fold the legs down. The grill is mostly for dinners. Its not a fantastic grill, but you can still do a lot with it. Every now and then, I take it home, spray with oven cleaner and hose it out..

Most of the time for lunch, we bring cheese, crackers and cold cuts, along with grapes, apples or other fruit. And we have peanut butter for the younger kids along with some type of chips. Oh yeah, we also have a vacuum on the boat, so messes are not that big of a deal. Our current boat has a full kitchen with stove, oven and microwave, but we still eat the same way as when we had the bowrider, at least when on the water. In a slip, its gourmet time, baby!
