Default Gas or charcoal?

If you could ONLY choose one for all your outdoor cooking needs, which would it be?

Ed Worts Pics pretty much sums up my opinion, but also Ill say Charcoal has a way better flavor.

Re: Edwort's photos - nice. I've cooked fish on the grill but never like in the photo. Need to try that. Nice part is, I'll get two 'cause my wife and daughter will probably back out ("euhhh, it has eyeeeees"). My son, on the other hand, will not be deterred.

I can't vote, I use both. It depends on what I'm cooking and how long I have.

I put propane, but only under protest. Charcoal tastes much better, and, IMHO, is easier to cook with. Gas is just so much more cheaper, convenient and cleaner that it unfortunately is just no contest. I occasionally will fire up my little Smokey Joe with charcoal, though.

I voted charcoal. As soon as I have the means to buy a Big Green Egg and a porch on which to put it, I'm getting one!

Gas in nice if you're in a hurry, but if I had to pick one, it would be lump charcoal.

I grill 5 nights a week.

Not only is it gas...it's a natural gas line from the house.

No refills.

No clean up.

No second thoughts about running out half way through a $30 batch of Ribeyes.

Now and again, I'll throw in a foil pouch filled with soaked mesquite to get a nice smoke bite to my salmon or pork tenderloins.

I do intend to invest in a big green egg soon for those all day smoked meat recipes...ala EdWort.
