I thought the Q grill also came in the charcoal version.

We have a large Kenmore 5 burner gasser but rarely use it now. It's convenient, but it's that occasional through cleaning that I don't like.....and that grease tray.
But I do like the gasser when doing late night last minute type grilling. It's quick.

I seriously disagree! Flavor is as much a result of the fuel used as any choice of spice/flavoring, qualifiers or not. I could care less if a gaser can heat up faster than getting to "hot coal" state with charcoal. Sacrificing taste for speed don't cut it, IMO. Who has shown and how did they show that taste is the same? Even a caveman steak has better flavor than one cooked on a gaser, IMO.

I guess that could depend on the type of cook you're doing. In many instances I don't think it makes any difference what the source of heat is.

Smoke/charcoal is another flavor and some like it.....and some don't(but they don't count.)

OP, what ever you buy try to get something that is versitile. No "unitaskers"! You won't know if you made the right choice for a while. Good luck on your search.(is that a hint to keep look'n?)
