    charcoal produces much more GHG content than propane, relative to the energy given off.

    we use charcoal, but i'd like to get a gas grill, because it's much easier to start when cooking for 2, and I work late.

    CHARCOAL ONLY!!!! Use the natural lump charcoal if you can find it.

    I vote gas too - for convenience. I find I use it more than I would have the time to do the charcoal thing. And, I make a mean steak - can't imagine it being any better if I'd spent the extra half hour getting charcoal to the right conditions.

    I think you can get a grill that does both. If you have a lot of cooking to do you start with the gas and let it heat your coals.

    Charcoal Chimney...it's the key to a great steak. Put that lump coal in a chimney and your coals will be perfect in 15 minutes.

    Agreed. The chimneys work great.

    Firing up some hickory chucks is something I have to try.

    The flavor is great Salty. Just be careful on your cook times they seem to fire up a lot hotter than charcoal.

    Re: Grilling, Gas or Charcoal?

    As I was fixing my fence late yesterday afternoon, my neighbor was BBQ-ing something upwind of me and this thought jumped into my head. Could it be that when they performed burnt offerings in the Old Testament they were really having a BBQ? If I were a God, that would definitly be appeasing to me. Well, we do know this - they used wood and not charcoal or gas!

    -----

    We had a birthday party at our house for our friends' two 3-year-old twins. They brought chicken thighs. Unfortunately the thighs were frozen. Why do these people always do this to me?

    I tried a new recipe with store bought stuff. I thought it would suck but I had the stuff and tried it anyway.

    I set up the gas grill, cleaned the grate, lubed the grate with olive oil.

    Then I dipped the chicken thighs in olive oild and dusted them with "Char Crust" seasoning. I think it was salt and pepper and some other stuff. I should check the ingredient list on the label.

    I set the thighs up on the top rack because I knew I'd have to leave them in there for a while because they were frozen and I didn't want them to burn. I left them in there probably 30 minutes with the grill on just under high, flipping and moving them every so often.

    Near the end I drizzled some rasperry chipotle sauce on them. This sounded a little she-she-fou-fou but I did it anyway because I had the stuff.

    Not one complaint. I had one guy say that he doesn't really like chicken and he loved the thighs. I ate two myself.

    Raspberry chipotle is good stuff. Also good on cream cheese with wheat thins.
