I have owned charcoal, gas, pellet, and stick! I prefer pellet for a couple reasons.
1. ease of use set it and forget
2. No tending fires
3. No waiting for charcoal to heat up or logs to start fire
4. Runs on a PID algorithm so you don't have runaway fires and you don't have to worry about you falling asleep and fire goes out.
5. It doesn't make food taste like creosote. You get a kiss of smoke and it tastes great! You taste the smoke but the meat shines through.
