I just bought a great, huge gas grill last summer, and I'm already thinking I need to get a charcoal grill on the side. It's more work, but the flavor is in a complete different league from gas.
yeah i am still a purist and use charcoal...it only takes about 15 minutes to get a fire going with a charcoal chimney
anyway, this is the offset smoker/bbq combo i recently bought...nothing fancy, but so far it gets the job done
