    Charcoal Versus Propane

    Charcoal, go out to the garage, open a beer and light a cigar.
    Drink some beer and smoke cigar for a little while.
    Get up and move grill.
    More beer and cigar.
    Load grill with charcoal and light.
    Drink more beer and smoke cigar while charcoals burn.
    Prepare meat, put on grill and close grill.
    Sit in back yard while meat cooks drinking more beer and smoking cigar.
    All the while, trying to time it so the meat and cigar's done at the same time.
    Usually takes me a toro or belicoso size cigar.

    Yeah with propane you have time for a beer but sometimes all ya have time for is a little cigarello. And who wants that?

    With charcoal it's more like a ritual with fire, smoke, meat and alcohol.
    With propane it's just cooking outside.

    While I'm not a smoker or nor do I partake of the alcoholic beverages I am a charcoal guy.

    Mesquite wood or propane. No: charcoal, booze or cigars.

    Charcoal here typically with mesquite wood chips mixed in works for us!

    Charcoal , make that natural lump charcoal , is definitely a tastier grilling experience. Top quality steaks deserve a good lump charcoal with a few water-soaked wood chunks thrown in.
    But propane is so convenient and easier to clean up. I made a small stainless box with slotted top for wood chips and smoke flavor in my Weber gas grill.

    Local grill shop has a bunch of different wood chunks/chips/sawdust available. They have hickory , mesquite , oak , pecan , apple , cherry , peach , pear and a few others.

    Just had fresh burgers off my Weber propane grill. I was eating my second burger by the time the charcoal would have been hot enough to put the burgers on.
