Compressed (char?)coal pellets you can sometimes get might be heavier.

Why not have a dedicated metal pail/lid to keep them in until proper
disposal?
note: should have a couple inches of sand in the bottom to protect
gelcoat etc from heat.

Default Charcoal Cooking

Thanks for all the responses. I had thought about putting them overboard
since it is wood and should not cause any environmental impact but I'd
really rather not do that.

I liked the idea about the bucket with sand. Since the grill is relatively
small, I should not need a large container. A little water on top should
also help cool things down.

As far as fire hazards go, the grill will be located away from the engine
and fuel and hanging off the side of the boat. Also, I bought a portable
grill with a latching cover that should contain any sparks, etc. Since I do
not house my boat at a marina, I do not need to worry about any rules they
might have.

What's all the fuss? If you burn real hardwood charcoal and not those
briquettes you will have almost no ash. If your grill has a tight-fitting
cover, you just cover it and let the fire go out, let it cool, and use the
unburned charcoal another time.
