Charcoal vs. Gas BarbcuesShow/Hide Details
It is the age old grillers debate: charcoal vs. gas. All barbecue cooks will have a preferred fuel type and will put argue why theirs is superior. Purist grillers tend to favour charcoal for the authentic taste it provides, whereas the more modern BBQ chef may favour gas for the convenience factor. The truth is, both fuel types provide fantastic results, but have different pros and cons
Charcoal is favoured by many grills for its authenticity and the taste that it gives food. There is something rather primitive and romantic about cooking with coals and they give the chef an authentic experience that cannot be matched when using a gas grill. Now your don't even have to wait hours for your coals to be at cooking temperature, as a chimney starter will have them ready in around 20 minutes.
Gas grills offer ultimate convenience and temperature control. Simply push a button, turn a knob and you are ready to grill. It is simple to control the temperature with a gas grill and the flames can be altered by the turning the control knob. It is this accuracy in temperature control that has many chefs favouring gas over charcoal. In theory burnt steaks should be a thing of the past
