Lighting my chimney on the side burner, using my CI griddle for blacking fish, making eggs, pancakes, omlettes, etc. Quick meals that don't involve smoking. Mine definitely has a place in my arsenal. Outside living.!!

I seem to always have one around for personal use, but flipping gassers on craigslist for a profit has always been a good way for me to fund my BBQ obsession.

Yep mine does too, wife uses it more than I do, but I'll use it for quick cooks.

Sometimes things just don't work out on the smoker. Good intentions get interrupted by life. Started cooking a tri tip and baked potatoes on my mini tonight. Got late and had to finish the tri tip on the gasser. Se la vie. Dinner time with family is more important than how you cook it.

Nothing. I took my gasser (Charbroil Red, INfrared garbarge) and with the help of my Sawzall and torch, cut it up into little pieces and put it in the trash can. It didn't deserve a personal trip to the dump. Trash!

We need one down here with so many Live fire ban days, better than cooking inside.
gassers are allowed in suburbia on these days

Well I use mine to sear ribeye steaks on holidays when we have family over. In Michigan some winter days it snows sideways and blows at times about 50=60 mph. No smoker is going to work in that weather.
P.S. Gasser sits inside the garage year round.

I find it useful for keeping pans heated like beans or lots of ears of corn that take up lots of room.
Also warming buns and tortillas.
I guess you could also cook meat on it too

Bingo! When it does get used it's almost always on a WeekNite.
