Other than maybe grilling some quick spiral cut hotdogs for chili dogs, the only thing I use my gasser for is to use the side burner for lighting a chimney of coals. In 5 or 10 minutes I can have hot coals ready to cook just about anything. I usually cook out 2 or 3 times a week rain or shine cold or hot. I am thinking about using the side burner more this summer for sides and 1 pot meals and using the stove inside less often.
