Which is better charcoal or propane?

I want to buy a barbeque, but I was wondering if one was better than the other.

  • Both depending on the food. We actually have both. Charcoal grills are if you can afford it get both.

  • It's a personal preference. I can't start a charcoal fire to save my life, but I can tear up a gas grill! LOL

  • I personally like propane better. Charcoal tends to leave a weird almost burnt taste to the food. Propane is more expensive I think but a tank of propane lasts longer than a bag of charcoal.

  • We have a natural gas grill that hooks up to our house. I love it. It's easy to use and never runs out of gas. No tanks and it starts up instantly. We cook most of our meals on the grill.
