> Geez, everyone's got a gas grill. Charcoal is definately the way to go. Try throwing some mesquite or a dead rosemary branch on a gas grill to get some flavor going (or flavour for our non-American grillers). Can you do it? No! You might as well be using an electric grill.

Actually, they've got this little thing now called a smoker box. Based on what I've heard about it, you put your wood chips and some water into it and place it down by the gas flames to add the wood flavor to your food.

> And of course there's always the possibility of accidentally blowing yourself up using a gas grill. Oooo, can't wait to fire up that baby.

Danger is my middle name.

> Assembly time? Charcoal grill - under ten minutes, very little chance of killing one self. Gas grill - it appears to be over three hours with a slight chance of dying from a sudden explosion. Don't believe me? You been to Boulder recently?

Charcoal grill prep time before cooking: (placing briquettes, adding fluid, waiting for it all to ash over) 20 - 30 min.

Gas Grill prep to cook time: 5 minutes

How do you turn off a charcoal grill? suffocate it and wait a couple few hours.

How do you turn off a gas grill? turn off the gas and let it cool down; it will be cool to the touch by the time you're done eating.
