    What do you use? I think charcoal grilling gives the food a lot more flavor than a gas grill.

    There is a pecan tree in my yard so there are always pecan twigs to use to make smoke.

    Gas!

    I'm too impatient to wait for charcoal to burn.

    I've got a nice Weber Gas Grill that I use most of the time.

    I also have a nice heavy duty smoker. I've only used it once. I smoked some pork tenderloin. It takes all day and constant attention to the fire and heat to smoke something. My attention span can't deal with that.

    First off Charcoal for everything...

    If I'm grilling burgers and/or steaks I'll use Kingsford regular with about a handfull of mesquite chips soaked in Coors Light.

    If I'm smoking a roast or ribs I'll use Albertsons Hickory Charcoal. You wouldn't believe the flavor that those coals give! On top of that I'll use a ton of hickory chips soaked in either beer or a whiskey sauce that I concoct. Keep adding when you add coals.

    Gas sucks!

    I would probably soak them in water and whisper the words "Coors Light" while I drank the beer"

    :D

    Switched to Gas via Weber. The convienence is great and the flavor bars give food a good flavor.

    I never heard of a flavor bar. What are they made out of and how do they work?
