The Outdoor Rig: Charcoal or Gas?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by P. Aaron, Apr 30, 2005.

  1. Foreman Grill. 2 burger size costs like $13. Gets itself ready in a few seconds, cooks in a few minutes, cleans in probably under a minute. Also, fat runs off, for lean George-Foreman-esque physique.

    Oooohhh yeah those are hot. I used to use those before the Viking. I have a bunch of Foreman grills and Foreman grill related products.

    Charcoal, of course.. :cool:

    I have a tiny little charcoal grill I got on a whim at Kroger a few years ago, and I LOVE it. It's getting to be time (plus I'll finally have the space) to upgrade to one of the bigger Weber models.

    I grill about 2-3 times/week, and I just can't bring myself to use gas. My parents used it, and compared to coal grilled food, gas grilled stuff tastes sort of blend to me now. I want to try to hardwood charcoal one of these days. Where can I find it?

    I prefer charcoal, but we're using gas now. I work at a hardware store that has a NOS 2003 Weber One Touch Silver 22.5 that I may pick up for $75.00.
  5. Hank Hill uses gas, therefore.... propane, accessories, and beer are the right thing to do. Yyyup.

    Charcoal? Do you still commute in a covered wagon drawn by equine? Does your phone have a rotary dial on it?

    That's the kind we have, too. Before I assembled it I gave it an extra coat of black barbecue-type heat resistant paint, and it's lasted for many years without rusting out like past ones.

    The advantage with charcoal, though, is that you can see when you're low on charcoal. ;)

    Modern Weber's have suspended 20 pound propane tanks that show how much is left. ;)

    Ah well, you can see by the photo that this particular model uses the non-refillable 14.1- or 16.2-oz. cylinders! ;)

    Agreed, I personally like a mixed bag: a log or two chopped over a bottom layer of charcoal. Pile up, light and let burn down into nice glowing ember - nice and even heat without lighter fluid aromas :spit:

  11. Charcoal (preffered) at the cabin, gass (easier) at home.

    They sell mesquite chips that you can wet then put on your lava rocks for better taste with gas grilles. They really do make for a tasty experience and last for many cooking sessions.

    Charcoal is best, but gas is more convenient and much more environmentally friendly.
