Coal or gas for the outdoor grill

Bill L | Jan 19, 2007 08:51 PM

I have long been a propoent of using charcoal or woods for grilling/smoking meats on the outdoor grill, and take great pride in my ability to work a charcoal/wood fire. However, the allure of a simpler set-up and the degree of control one can exercise, not to mention the generally larger cooking area that gas grills (i.e. the larger Webers)can provide, is staring to seduce me.

Coal or gas? Is straying from natural materials going to condemn me to an afterlife in a Dennys?
