I know I want to get a propane grill next time. I have a charcoal grill I use with lump charcoal and a chimney starter which is great for when I have a day off, but since I get off work late at night I just don't always have the patience to light the charcoal. You could go ir I suppose but I don't think it gives the same maillard reactions as a good flame will. Not speaking from experience though.

I've used it in the past and really enjoyed it, but its hard to find and expensive in my area.

get the best of both worlds. Take a log starter (basically a pipe cross drilled with holes, hooked up to a ball valve and propane connection), use it to start your charcoal. Then cook with the charcoal. Ease of propane starter without the flavor of propane.

Big fan of lump charcoal here.

And if you have a fair amount of disposable income, it's hard to beat one of these:

My parents have an infrared grill. It's a regular propane grill with a big ass sheet of metal between the grates and the burners. This steel plate helps distribute the heat better but you don't get a searing/grilling zone. You get a searing, less searing and grilling. Also since they grill mostly hamburgers the big steel plate absorbs the flavors from the drippings that hit it the most so chicken breasts also tasted like burger ashes.

I have had one of the charbroil infrareds for the past year and love it...really it lives up to how it is advertised. Juicy meat, more efficient on the gas and cooks in less time. Also for flavor it it really easy because the design allows for you to throw dry woodchips directly on the grill. No hot box no soaking, tremendous smoky flavors. As long as you follow the directions and season your grates, cleanup is a breeze too. This has really helped me step up my grilling. But read the instruction booklet that comes with it, because cooking times, methods and cleanup are different than a regular propane grill.
