I like charcoal, but what I use is a Weber Genesis Gold
gas grill. Quick to light, does a nice job on most things,
and fits my current lifestyle well. When I retire in a
couple of years I'm going to buy a good charcoal grill
and maybe a Traeger grill to do some slow smokin'.

ve a Weber Kettle charcoal grill. That's all I've ever owned. You can't beat the taste of food off a charcoal grill. A gas grill is like cooking on the stove only your outside. You have to have the charcoal flavour on grilled food.

Get a chimney to light the charcoal, you won't get that "lighter fluid" flavor. I have both I use charcoal for me and the kids and save the gas for when the ex or IRS agents are over!

Only use charcoal. Wife always complains about cooking slow. Always raves about the food being great.

Shh, that's breaking guy code.

For me, It's all or nothing. Weber is what I usually use, but for flavor you can't beat real wood. Real wood doesn't come in a bag in perfect little nuggets. A week and a half ago I cooked tilapia, a chicken, and some new York strips over apple wood that was a little green still... Lots of smoke

556,

In do like Charcoal best but I mostly use gas due to the time and convenience! But when I am smoking meat on my smoker it is charcoal and mesquite or other chips all the way!
