I have come to prefer gas, in general, over the years. I really don't see much difference in taste and think most couldn't tell the difference in a blind tasting. Some may have enough descimination in their taste buds to tell, but I really doubt most can when they can't see it done. My biggest complaint agains charcoal is getting rid of the ash when you are done. Then there is the difficulty of getting true charcoal rather than the brickettes with all the crap in them. Still, I do like charcaol for when I want a hotter grill and have a weber kettle as well as a small, tabletop model. With gas one can always use a cast iron box with slits containing wet wood chips or wet wood chips in foil with some holes poked in to add a "smoky" flavor if you can taste the difference. Hmmm, perhaps doing that with cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, or nutmegs would work with some meats, too. Might have to give that a try.

you men are so silly, gasoline is very dangerous and should not be used for grilling!

Charcoal or wood, nice and slow.

Personally my family uses both. Charcoal as the favorite. We love the Kingsford charcoal for that nice slow cooked flavor on steaks and what not but we also use a gas grill for something for me to cook hot dogs or hamburgers on for a quick snack or a little party. Weber grills all the way!!!
Buy the biggest one you can afford, you can always let off the throttle!!!!

Charcoal !
Used my UDS smoker today, made a 6 # chuck roast
and 4 # of short ribs.
added some potatos 1 hr before Eats.
and even cooked up a burger at lunch time when I put the dinner on.
takes me 15 min or less to prepair the smoker, and it will hold temp for 10 + hours on one load.
going to build me a smoker on a trailer, it will be hooked up to my laptop and fully automated.
