Summer is in full swing now and everyone has their grills out and going...right. If not get on it and get the grill out and fire it up.

As for me I am a diehard believer in the old trusty Weber kettle grill. I know it lacks all the nifty doodads of the $2,000 grills but who needs those things, the Weber kettle cooks food better. Last time I checked cooking food is what grills are made for, not to look pretty or to function as an outdoor kitchen. Inside of my Webber I use and only use lump charcoal, Royal Oaks is my brand of choice. Lump burns better cleaner and doesn't need any binding agents to hold it together, which means better tasting food.

My father thinks I'm crazy, but I am able to pick out whats been cooked over good ol' charcoal on the weber and whats been cooked over the propane, but I've been able to tell the difference to a certain extent with everything he cooked. it just never tastes the same cooked over gas.

On a related note, I just had BBQ ribs. ;3

Charcoal is the way to go! Gas grills just don't cut it. Grilling for my family isn't really a "summer" thing. We do it all year round and even in the winter. My step dad gets on snow boots and goes on the deck to make steaks and ribs in the winter. Sure it's a pain in the butt, but mmm it's totally worth it.

This is making me sooo hungry! >.<

I have never heard that one before, I like the smokiness taste that charcoal cooking gives off on everything. I like the smell even more, lump charcoal and campfire should be air freshener scents.

I am incapable of cooking, but my boyfriend is very good at it. My friends and I are planning a BBQ soon, and I'm super excited.
I don't actually know if I've ever had propane cooked noms before. But the charcoal is really good!

Not the same as grilling but I went out and bought myself a smoker yesterday. Tested it out right away with some ribs and sausage.

My dad's owned a Weber-style grill for as long as I can remember. (I'm pretty sure he owned it back when the Dead Sea Scrolls were being written.) That sucker, however, is the source of my fondest memories of his BBQ chicken. I don't think he's used it in years - last I saw it was rusting quite a bit on the lid. But I remember the charcoal-briquette grilling giving the chicken a much better taste.

That said, I do like his propane grill-cooking. Especially ever since he learned his lesson back when I was in my teens. Good ol' Pops decided it would be much faster to put an entire pack of chicken and an entire pack of pork chops on the propane grill...all at the same time. Next thing you know, I'm looking out the back door and seeing nothing but orange in the little grill window.

Me: Um...Dad?
Dad: Yeah?
Me: You should probably check the grill now.
Dad: Why?
Me: I think the food's on fire.
Dad: #$%@!

Yeah...there was nothing left except what could easily have replaced the bottoms of my shoes. From that point forward, Dad has taken his time with the grilling...with much more favorable results. ^^
