I am a bit of a grill "nut" and have 5 of them right now.
No doubt charcoal/wood tastes best but what a PITA sometimes when you want a quick cook.
When you have the time go with charcoal/wood when you need a quick steak/burger go with gas.

I have BOTH. Here is my personal charcoal grill.......starts faster than any I've seen.

The best wood/charcoal grill is this one http://www.grillery.com/

But way more $$ than the "german" but the stainless steel is nice bling.


The Kalamazoo grill is arguably the BEST "overall"......especially as it is a hybrid and can do BOTH but it is $$$pendy!!!

The best advice is no matter which grill you have "learn" how to cook on it as you can tweak even a gas grill with some tricks to maximize the flavor.

Yikes! You might have more into grills than I have in defenders!

I draw the line at a nightstand that costs more than a good used car myself. Probably the same for grills. LOL

Oh, and gas, only because I'm lazy. If you are cooking, then charcoal please.

I'm a certified Chef and attended CIA. I didn't know if you guys realized, but the nice filet mignon that you can cut with a fork in the fancy restaurant is cooked in the oven. Marked at high heat on a gas grill and finished to temp at 450 to 500 in the oven. I'll add combination cooking to the list. Pork spare ribs are often cooked in the oven and then finished on the grill.

Depends on what you're cooking.

For burgers, I prefer charcoal. Fish or chicken, gas. For fillet, I cook over wood, specifically Orangewood. Adds a unique an amazing flavor.
