Hubby was the BBQ king in the family. He even built his own pit from scratch & included a fire box. Ended up so big and heavy, he had to use the tractor to move it. Then...he found the art of propane.
I like propane better because I don't have charcoal spillage (new and used) everywhere. We don't have to keep fire wood for the fire box anymore. Whereas that doesn't seem like a big deal, it is to me when you find little nasties living in your stored wood.
The grill he purchased also has a burner on the side. So he can multi task while watching the grill. He mounted the entire grill on a small (cheap) furniture dolly so he can easily roll it any where on the porch (not just count on the one side with wheels). I like the dolly idea as it makes cleaning easy and I can move it out of the way when it's not being used.
But alas...once he got the grill mastered, he purchased a smoker. His new love, the smoker. Easy to regulate the heat. He can put a couple of briskets on low and leave them on all night with out the fear of losing temp...unless it's windy and the flame from the propane tank blows out.
We actually did our Thanksgiving Turkey on the smoker last year. It was really good.
