I have used wood, charcoal and gas, as Ive lived all over the place (north, south, east, west and central US).
Charcoal or wood is great. Esp wood if you live in an area that the excellent woods are readily available.
But in other certain areas where these conditions are not met, gas is teh bomb (excellent too).
In a way ... it seems to be a matter of adapting to the surrounding environs imho.
This time we got a Char-Broil at Lowe's. We got it a month ago. It has that infrared feature. SR says it cooks faster. I think the meats are much juicier and less dry. The grilled chicken is excellent now.
I'm not sure if I'd want to spend all the money on a Weber. I used to have one and the inner parts wore out every bit as quickly as the Char-Broils. In fact had a lot more trouble with the gas Weber. Maybe I just had a lemon but I wouldn't get another of their propane gas grills.
I got this Master Forge grill. I have a small, covered back patio, so I needed one that had sides that collapse. I don't really care for a side burner. My choices were limited.
I have no idea if this is a good name brand or not. I know Weber has a good rep, but as I said, I didn't want to spend that much for my first gas grill.
I just purchased a new gas grill that has porcelain enameled iron grates. Curious if anyone knows if I could still use a regular grill brush? I don't want to scratch up the finish if my metal bristles are too harsh for it.
I have gas, love it, never liked having to deal with the length of time it takes for the charcoal to get hot and be ready to cook on. spent 100ish on mine a couple years ago and have only used coal when at the park or something
