Spectra 5 years Where's the option for using wood? We put wood in the grill and light it and let it burn down to embers for a while and then put the food on. It cooks a little faster than charcoal, but if you let it burn down for a while, it imparts a nice smoky flavor to the food. dani17731 5 years You MUST use charcoal. To use a gas grill in my family is blasphemy. orangek8 5 years I love my gas grill. Chrstne 5 years Charcoal. I love it. ilanac13 5 years personally i don't grill but my husband prefers charcoal and my mom uses a gas grill at home. chiefdishwasher 5 years When cooking bacon........you need charcoal..........but gas is so convenient in the winter.........you can still add smoke flavor on gas........so if you can .........get one of each! Pampire 5 years I have both, if your lava rocks are well used in your gas grill it makes your food taste really good and I prefer it but of course the new gas grills don't have lava rocks so they probably suck, but if I make hamburgers I usually use my charcoal grill because the grease in the burgers make my gas grill flame up pretty bad and it scares me a little bit! Overall though I prefer my gas grill. :) mwmsjuly19 5 years CHAR-coal! Marci 5 years I'm all about the charcoal. opisnowpro 5 years I use gas but charcoal is better doogirl 5 years I agree with tisgirl!!! Charcoal rocks! tlsgirl 5 years Charcoal all the way. Gas is easy, but something grilled over charcoal just tastes better. sonya-ina 5 years Gas vs. Charcoal, I'd say gas, just because it's way more convenient. However, my father-in-law just got an electric grill that uses pellets and it's awesome! So, if I had to choose, I'd say electric!
