I think that Ford makes some compelling points about propane. The same could be said about electricity as well, I suppose. I'm probably pretty old fashioned in thinking this, but my thought is that the ability to maintain the proper temperature in your pit with out artificial means is a skill that makes barbecue different from any other culinary styles. No offense intended to all you who use pellet rigs. I guess I don't see the need to make competition BBQ more like other cooking methods.
