Who grills on charcoal grills?

I was just wondering, I see a lot of folks grill on propane grills. I switched back to charcoal years ago and find the food tastes much better. I switched because I got tired of cleaning my gas grill. Charcoal is much easier, dump burnt ashes, quick brush off, done. I even cook on coals at home too!

Charcoal all the way when camping, have the time to kick back and enjoy. At home 90% is gas because time in short demand.

Like some other things,like which is the best truck.cooking with propane or charcoal will get you many different opinions and answers.

I like propane because it's easier and cleaner than charcoal,but propane lets you adjust your heat better - that's my short and sweet answer,but there are many more reasons one likes propane over charcoal or vice versa.

However,in the words of Hank Hill of King Of The Hill fame - "Propane lets you taste the meat and not the heat" or something like that.

I am coals all the way I mix half my charcoal with hickory wood and the other half with mesquite wood. It depends on what taste I'm in for that night but I change back and forth. Plus with charcoal you can put a nice brisket in the smoke box side and smoke cook it all day long! I will never switch to the gas side of my grill the only thing I use the gas for is to warm up bread and beans!!

You say mix. I have aways just placed the wet wood chips on top of the coals. Do you mix them down in the coals before lightning. Just seeking a better way if there is one.

At home we have both gas and charcoal. On the weekends when I have more time, I prefer to use the Kamado grill to smoke food. But I sure do love my gas grill too! As for camping, we used to use charcoal, but all of our friends use gas, and they would always be waiting for us (I know, start earlier), so we switched to gas. Jerry.

Propane all the way. Less hassle, less to clean up, less stuff to pack around and much cleaner all the way around.
