The charcoal made a slight difference in the taste, which I wasn't expecting for a relatively short cook. I really thought that there wouldn't be any difference.
I prefer the charcoal taste. But, the one cooked on my gas grill was damn good too.
So yes, there is a difference in my hands, but it was slight. And both steaks were good.
Steak cooked to Medium? Should be banned!! lol
I have a Gasser, Weber Performer Charcoal and Stickburner Smoker and when I cook steak, usualyl NY Strip or Tenderloin I do it on the Gasser on my Grill Grates (which are awesome) since the meat is on the grill for 5min at most I don't see the point in firing up the Weber. Not to mention the amount of charcoal needed to get 700+ degree temp on the charcoal for 2 tenderloin steaks seems a little crazy.
Now if my wife ever let me buy a small Egg, that might change but only on the weekend when I have time.
