I voted coal.

For the majority of the time, I will be using hardwood charcoal. Some times I use just oak, and hickory to cook with though.

But I also love gas. It has far better control. I can get my grill 400-500 degrees and sear a steak quickly and it be ready in 5 minutes. Where as the charcol. I can sear them but to get the center to the temp I want I have to leave them on the grill for another 10 minutes. for a medium rare steak. Gas without a doubt, there hardly enough time anyway on wood/coal to get those flavors in there anyway.

So: Burgers, hot-dogs, Fruit/vegitables pork, Rib's and smoking things.. charcoal. Chicken

Steaks, seafood, Ducks, geese, fish, Gas.

Greenster, I installed an adjustable regulator on my gas grill, like the one that comes with a turkey frying burner, and can now get my grill up to 1000 degrees or better (it glows) You can kick out a mean steak, filets that are seared hard on the outside and still cool in the middle. i would'd do this with a cheap grill as it could melt, mine is an old vermont castings i traded for all porcelin coated cast iron. I can also turn it down a lot lower than I could before wich is great for chicken and ribs.

For the record I like charcoal but It is rare I have the time

Prefer charcoal over gas any day of the week, but what do I cook with....gas of course. Because my loving wife doesnt like the taste of charcoal.

if just cooking for me, gas.
if cooking for a group, then on the smoker with charcoal and mesquite, pecan, or oak for smoking.

THAT IS SUPER HOTTTT>

I agree with you on the time. I prefer charcoal, but trying to whip out meal at 7 oclock so you can go to bed its not an option.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.
