Grill purists will tell you that charcoal is the only way to go. Most people that use gas grills do so for convenience. It’s simple to turn on and off. Once you shut the flame off, it’s off. It’s much easier to regulate the temperature on a gas grill. If you live in an apartment or condo, you might not be allowed to have a charcoal grill. Which ever you use, make sure you cook something good.
