propane vs. charcoal
 
Which do you prefer? I recently bought a Weber charcoal grill. Its my first charcoal. I've always had gas.

I just got a Weber gas grill as an early Fathers day gift and it is unlike any gas grill I have ever had, it works great! It's worth the extra money and I'll fight anyone who says otherwise. :)

I prefer gas because it's easier to control and quicker to get to temperature. However if I wanted to cook the perfect steak and had an unlimited supply of time to do so, I would choose charcoal because it can get hotter.

Charcoal tastes better, propane's faster and more convenient.

Propane for normal days, charcoal for cookouts and tailgates.

Charcoal... no substitute. You cant get the amazing flavor with gas. You would have to season the crap out of it using gas.

For some reason an episode of "married with children" just came to mind. Al never cleaned his grill for that perfect flavor.. it gets better when cooking with dead relatives ashes. :D

I only use charcoal, propane doesnt give a grilled flavor to the food. plus there is nothing like the smell of a burning charcoal grill in the cool evening.

I have a Weber natural gas BBQ. I have a Weber Baby Q that runs on propane for the RV. I use the BBQ a lot and the charcoal is too much hassle. I do a 10 minute warm up before grilling which get the temp up to 500+ degrees then turn down the flame when I put the meat on. I can do roasts on the big one at 300 or steaks at 450.

Charcoal, tending the fire lends itself better more beer consumption, gas is good for when you're actually trying to cook instead being drunk and sun burned
