Barbecue.... gas or charcoal?
Living in Portlandia is funny. People around these parts don't know the first damn thing about how to barbecue. It's all gas grills. To me that's not barbecuing. Ya gotta have charcoals or wood chips or it ain't a barbecue. We're having ribs tonight since the weather is so wonderful. What's everyones favorite way to barbecue?

Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Depends. Charcoal if I have time, might even add wood chips to it if I'm grilling ribs or chicken. Short on time or starving - gas grill. If it's just hot dogs - gas grill, they're not worth the effort otherwise.

RE: Barbecue.... gas or charcoal?
I don't like charcoal because I don't like the taste of lighter fluid. I simply can't eat the food if there is the slightest hint of it.

We have a gas grill but in the last couple of years my husband has started adding some charcoal to it. That seems to work fine. The charcoal burns just fine with it being started by the propane flame and is without the chemical taste. But there is a different flavor to the food when compared to propane alone, a good difference.

I use gas but prefer charcoal. Finally been able to use the Grill Grates I got for Christmas, they're fantastic, I fully recommend checking them out.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I don't grill for parties but for dinner and gas is so much faster. In fact it's faster than cooking indoors. And I agree with Anjele - I can't stand the taste of lighter fluid and I can always taste it.

You can add chips to a gas grill too... And I do. I also like to grill on wood planks...

You can buy something to ignite the charcoal without lighter fluid. It's more or less a metal tube with handle and and a bottom in which you stuff & light paper. I can't remember what it's called.

Lighter fluid!?! I haven't used lighter fluid in 20 years. We always use a chimney with newspaper and charcoals shoved into this thingy and then light it with a match. It's great.

Still takes forever to get charcoal to the right temperature.

I bet you would not use a charcoal grill for cooking a quick dinner every night. For me, it's an easy, quick and tasty way to eat only real (fresh) foods.
