Charcoal.

I can get charcoal going in the same amount of time it takes to get a propane grill up to temp.

Gas because I don't feel like dealing with all the mess.

Re: Charcoal Grill vs Gas Grill

Charcoal, It does give a little better flavoring. I can light a charcoal grill pretty fast but my wife thinks it takes along time to get it going. This gives me more time out side and time to down a few more cold beers. I also have a gas grill and you can use wood chips to help with flavor.

Re: Charcoal Grill vs Gas Grill

^^^^^^^^^^^

I'm with the master. You can buy bags of wood already cut up into charcoal sized pieces. But usually I use charcoal and just throw a few of those wood chunck in there.

I have cooked a few steaks in my day, and in a blind taste test I will bet a million dollars that the charcoal steak wins 99 - 100.

As for the time factor, the mess factor, and the cooked factor. Most of the time I can have my grill ready to go in the time it takes to drink a beer, and get all of the meat ready to go on the grill. Sure the ashes are a pain in the neck. What I do is buy a fireplace ash bucket and dump them in there after every time I cook. Or if you live with a gravel driveway, throw them out there. Most of the food I have seen people cook on gas grills is either too done, or not done at all. Those flair ups scare the women and children.

Charcoal was my vote if your still not sure.

Re: Charcoal Grill vs Gas Grill

Gas. Charcoal is just too much of a pain in the buttf or the amount of grilling I do. (2-3 time a week all year long usually). I do prefer the charcoal method for taste but if you know how to actually use a gas grill(most don't) then you are only sacrificing a minor amount of taste for convenience. Charcoal only when it comes to anything more than steaks,burgers, hotdogs, or sausage. Anything that needs to sit on there for more than 30 minutes deserves the royal treament of charcoal.

Re: Charcoal Grill vs Gas Grill

I have this Weber grill and it's awesome.

Got it has a wedding present, it is a charcoal grill with a propane starter. heats the coals pretty quickly. but if you've got a charcoal grill and aren't using a chimney starter, you're just wasting time.

i understand the ease and speed of a gas grill, and don't mind food off of it, but there is just something about a great grilling experience with a charcoal grill.

I finally bought one of those chimney starters for Steve-O (aka, AMD Sr.) so we won't need to have people form a human wall around the grill if it's windy at tailgates anymore.

Re: Charcoal Grill vs Gas Grill

I grill with gas, but I BB-Q with wood. If you're doing pork, ribs, brisket, or anything you would find at Red-hot-and blue you need to slow cook indirectly with low heat... Which pretty much rules out a gas grill... but a gas grill is exactly what it is... a grill, so if you're grilling steaks, chicken, fish, burgers, shrimp, scallops...

goddamn is it luchtime yet???

Re: Charcoal Grill vs Gas Grill

Charcoal!

Bar-B-Queing is not just about cooking food. It's also about the rituals, smells, etc. A bar-b-que is not the same without charcoal. It has become tradition to play with the fire as the coals burn, wait for the coals to heat up and turn gray, and to get a little dirty in the process. The smell is irreplacable as well--not to mention the food tastes better!
