Combo, preferably one of each.

Charcoal for the weekends when you want to grill something tasty, propane for during the week and you just want food.

Which one has a higher risk of starting your camera on fire? Buy that kind.

Propane Bobby...taste the meat, not the heat

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

Charcoal. Even cooking on the entire rack, no hot or cold spots.

After years of grilling with propane I switched to a Weber grill and Kingsford charcoal, there is no other way to BBQ, period. I will get rid of the propane grills back in Barrington and get another Weber grill. FYI one of the propane grills is a Weber Genesis, but it totally out classed by the Weber Charcoal grill.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

I was also told to get Weber and only Weber. But I can't find any combo one! What do I do?

How often you plan on using it?

Every day? Propane would be much quicker to just turn on and go.

Weekends or couple times a week? Charcoal.
