Whatever fries the bacon, floats the boat and chases the red away. I have drifted away from charcoal and mostly use propane.

Gas is quick and easy but.....

Charcoal...the heavenly taste stays with you for hours. My mouth waters just thinking about it.

Propane if I want food the quick and dirty way. Charcoal and hardwood for food with flavor.

Gas grill at home in Wasilla, charcoal at the cabin in the Bush. That's the little grill on the porch. After a 75 mile river boat ride this is where I work all of our short summer season. Oh I forgot to mention that I fish while I'm out there. The place is lakefront with 650' of beach.

Now that place looks comfortable.

We just tossed our propane Ducane. It needed a total rebuild again. So this time we went BGE "Big Green Egg." This thing is awesome.
