Good Day Chowhounders. I'm in the market for a BBQ and i'm on the fence as to what to get. Propane is clean and easy to use, but charcoal adds more flavour.
Former CHOW.com Senior Food Editor Jill Santopietro recommends that you smoke all sorts of things: fish, cheese, salt, and, of course, meat (see our recipes). And you don’t need a fancy smoking device: You can smoke food on a basic kettle grill. It’s really easy. Watch the video, or see it all step by step (plus instructions for smoking on an outdoor gas grill).
Grillmaster Todd Eng encourages you to rethink your use of lighter fluid and consider investing in a chimney starter. While you’re at it, you might pick up some lump charcoal and a grate brush. Then check out CHOW's grilling recipes!
Running out of fuel for your gas grill can bring your barbecue to a halt. CHOW.com's Blake Smith demonstrates how you can estimate your remaining propane without using a fuel gauge.
