There have been a bunch of grilling posts today, so I started a new thread to avoid hijacking another... I was wondering if I am the only one left who prefers a charcoal grill over a gas grill. To me, a gas grill is nothing more than an outdoor oven. Food cooked on it tastes a little better than being cooked indoors - but not much. I love food cooked over real charcoal (and LUMP charcoal, not those hard to light brickettes). I love to throw in some wet hickory chips too.
