BBQ, Smoking, & Grilling 30

Completely new to grilling - useful for weekdays, quick dinners?

We had a grill growing up but despite living in California used it only a couple times per year. And only for chicken. A very specific kind of chicken with kraft barbecue sauce.

I finally have a house where I can have a grill and I am wondering whether it's something that I can use during the week for a quick meal, or whether it will be one of those things I buy and then use, like my parents did, only on an occasional basis. I do find myself roasting and baking meat and fish a lot more than my parents do, and we love roasted veggies. What are the benefits of moving this stuff to the grill? I live in California and I think we could use a gril year round. I am thinking gas for lower maintenance. If anyone has any suggestions on the benefits of a grill over the oven, and point me in the right direction on the basics of grilling, I'd be all ears! Suggestions for a durable, reasonably priced, easy to use grill would also be appreciated.
