Gas. Turn it on. Light it. Wait a bit. Cook. Eat.

I agree on the gas but I do love the taste of charcoal

Gas. No muss, no fuss, propane bottles are much easier to carry.

I carry a little Weber Smokey Joe with a bail to clamp the lid on while traveling. I figure when we're RVing, I have lots of time to light it and wait since the DW can't do much "honey-do" listing while we're "roughing it". Yeah, gas is quick and easy and there's times when it works better for some things like roasts and chicken but charcoal soothes my caveman instincts.....

Both!

Weber Baby-Q.

I carry a bag of charcoal and put a couple of them near the flame. Easier than trying to deal with smoker chips. Less mess and just the right amount of charcoal flavor.

Meat cooked over charcoal tastes so much better. It is well worth the wait.

i have tried the small propane bottles but they don't last long enough to cook a couple chicken breasts. I use Kingsford and nothing else.

Coals, I bring the big Weber. I also bring a propane unit along with one more coal grill.
Propane is for the seafood. I guess I'm into both, depends on my mood.

Gas. Thinking of getting a smoker though. My neighbor at storage takes one of his wood burning kitchens.

I use a small weber charcoal grill and one of those chimney things that you get the charcoal started with a piece of news paper. Chimney things makes it a lot easier.

I have a gas grill that has similar BTU output to a home grill. Cooks very good. I also have a cast iron skillet that I put on the grill. Love that thing. Great for cooking veggies, break fast food, or what ever.
