Charcoal only, tho on a few oak strips for steakhouse flavor and don't forget the bacon on steak or burgers from the grill add some veggies with smokey flavor! Go slap your momma good!

Haha.....I was thinking the same thing.


Cooking on a charcoal grill is an art. You have to put the coals down just so and know when to turn the food, turn the meat, move closer to or away from hottest coals, etc.

My teenage sons have taken over most of the grilling. They have become excellent cooks, both on the grill and in the kitchen.

It's the long time consuming way but taste's great.
What woods do you use? I use madrone and manzanita most often when cooking over a wood fire. Sometimes oak.

Cooking is an invaluable skill and steak is too expensive to overcook no matter how you fuel your fire. Charcoal is harder to control, temp wise but Weber and the Green Egg do have several vents to control the heat. It's just not as easy or as quick as gas.

I don't use wood/charcoal/smoker because its easy, I use them because they are the best way!

If it was easy everybody would do it.
