Hmmm...this is starting to sound like weeknight charcoal cooking is a possibility. Last week I took some heat for saying that I (me personally) can't really tell the taste difference with food that is grilled over a fuel like straight Kingsford K vs. Gas... But what I didn't say is that for straight grilling it is WAY more enjoyable to cook over a bed of coals... and WAY easier to throw in a chunk or two of wood for adding flavor if desired :)
For quite some time now, I have been a weeknight gas guy... wondering now if its time for a change??
