Using CHARCOAL on a PROPANE barbecue. Is this crazy?

Googs | Aug 18, 200907:01 PM     36

I've heard some people do it. I'm wondering how safe it is and how big a mess it makes. I have a pretty nice bbq that I supplement with a smoker box to get the wood. I'd really rather not mess it up. Thing is though, I have this neighbour that must throw chicken on their charcoal 'cue every 2nd or 3rd night. The aromas just about make me crazy. I don't want to buy another grill. Can I get away with tossing some charcoal in there without heavy consequences?
