That's what is nice with these pellet grills...No messing with dirty charcoal or chimney starters or liquid fire starters. Just turn the switch (a hot rod heats up and starts the fire) set it to desired temp, add the meat of your choice then find a chair and beverage...I love that grill!

We switched to lump charcoal and a Big Green Egg (BGE) at home over 4 years ago, have not lit the propane grill since....on the road we use charcoal and a weber, almost bought the "portable" BGE last weekend for the RV before our trip to San Antonio, but it weighs so much and is pretty expensive so we are sticking with the weber and charcoal for now, no propane ever again for us, except maybe for the campfire, saw the other thread discussing it and I am about ready to order one of those camp fire in a can deals.Campfire In A Can - Portable Propane Fire Pit for Backyard & Camping

Switched to lump charcoal a few years ago and will NEVER go back to gas or briquettes! A Weber 22" with a Smoke-EZ and you can cook anything! Use a chimney starter - drizzle a little vegetable oil on the newspaper to make sure it gets hot and lights the first time every time. Slope the charcoal for a hot side to warm side and controlling your grill is easy. Lump and wood chunks - I usually use apple -for smoking. If I don't feel like grilling its a cast iron skillet on the stove in the camper. For what it's worth....

X2 on the fire. I don't even bring a grill.

Charcoal or hardwood at home both in the Kettle and in the smoker. Weber Q at the campsite Grill, Charcoal for the Dutch oven. Working in the Combustion field...I like Fire of all types!

That was always my plan until I ended up somewhere that fires weren't allowed! My dummy self didn't think about it ahead of time and we had planned on grilling as a major component of our eating that trip (which isn't usual for us).

I like cooking over an open fire too. I'm very particular about the wood I use and sometimes a little wary of the condition of the fire pits at campgrounds....you never know what's been burned in there....
