With wood in the mix, the difference is in flavor. Much better with the wood in there. With that said, I cook steaks on the gasser pretty frequently-I can have them cooked before the charcoal gets ready, and I didn't just spend $5 worth of charcoal to cook a $12 steak. And they still taste pretty durn good.

Are you selling grill grates or something? Why are you beating this to death?

I can definitely tell the difference and I was once a die hard gasser.

You can't tell the difference, and that's fine, everyone has different tastes. But why berate the people that do?

I say yes I can. But I have never done a blind taste test. Now that would be an interesting test.

I have used plenty of wood/charcoal mix on other cookers when grilling... the difference to me is soooo subtle that is almost non-existent. And those I cook for agree. I/we must have a shortage of taste-buds...

I bet a blind taste test of some steaks/chops/chicken/etc. cooked over gas vs charcoal/wood would surprise some folks .

Not trying to beat this to death... nor trying to sell anything... and definitely not putting anyone down my friend. I am just curious why most people swear by charcoal grilled food, when I (me personally) cannot tell the difference. That's all.

Someone once said to me that cooking with gas was cheating and kinda lazy. I then asked about his charcoal briquettes and lighter fluid. He didn't see the parallel I was making

Without woodsmoke in the mix, there just isn't much difference, except for a psychological one, I suspect.

One, I notice a discernible difference between steak made on a gasser and on a charcoal fire. I have 2 gassers, 2 smokers and 2 grills. The steak that I make on my Performer is hands down better than on a gas grill. Why all the controversy in every post you start.

I had a gasser once, wind came up one day and blew it off the deck, a couple times, Weber OTS never moved, guess its more aerodynamic lol. The only thing I used my gasser for was to start the coals for my webber, or a quick burger every now and then. I just like doing things the hard way, and you cant beat the taste of a pork chop grilled over an apple fire

I have a pretty nice gasser. Weber 3 burner with cast iron grates.

Lump charcoal tastes a lot better.

I mostly use the gasser to super-heat the cooking grates from my smokers to help clean them up.

That's a novel approach
