Do you prefer a gas or charcoal grill when grilling out? Why?

I love to cook and bake, make my own pasta, bread, etc. but the grill escapes me. I can't get the hang ot it!  We have a gas grill, fwiw.

lol maybe a grill is the easy way out for me. I don't really bake (unless it's meats and veggies) and often when I cook I'll wrap up whatever i am cooking in foil with some spices and throw it on the grill. Ours is also gas btw. ;-)

I never grill...probably because I live in the city with no outside space. But it always seems like a huge production to me to have to Carry stuff in and out of the house...or maybe it's because usually men are doing it and whatever they need, they need RIGHT NOW!! My sister law cooks outside year round...she will shovel a path on the deck to get to the grill...the food is always delicious, but I like my oven...

Infrared.  It makes the steaks crispy grilled on the outside and red-moo on the inside.  YUM.  I leave all the grilling to dh.  I buy all the food, marinate and prep it, hand it to dh, dh grills it, and he exclaims, "I made dinner."  Hah.  I stole that from a comedianne. :smileyhappy:  We have a gas grill, and haven't used charcoal in YEARS.

Yeah, nothing beats the smell of barbecue! I wish I lived in an area that weren't so humid and full of mosquitoes!
