That is the question every griller must make. Gas grills can look quite impressive and bolster all sorts of new gadgets and high-tech instruments for temperature control. However, gas grills lack a key fundamental benefit --taste! If you grill with charcoal, you understand what we mean. There is no other taste or smell like that of grilled food over a charcoal flame.
Charcoal grilling is affordable and easy to use which is more inclusive for new grillers. There aren't any complicated instructions on setup or the fear of not correctly hooking up the gas. Charcoal grilling is a straightforward way to grill some of the best-tasting food one has ever had. The taste of charcoal-grilled food just cannot be replicated by gas grilling.
We are glad you asked. It may not look like it but lump charcoal, is made from wood. So, some of the flavor profile of whatever wood was used to make the charcoal (like oak or hickory) is enveloped in the food as the charcoal burns and smokes. Gas grills, on the other hand, can have the unpleasant aftertaste of chemical or lighter fluid.
If you grill, you already get it. There is simply no contest that charcoal grilling produces some of the best tasting food that will ever be eaten. If you aren’t a big griller, don’t take our word for it. Pick up one of our grills online or at one of our retailers and test it for yourself.
