Default I don't get it...

{Mods, if this is in the wrong place, accept my apologies, and move, as needed. Thanks.}

I was searching Craigslist in Southern IL, as I'll be there next week for a conference. I found this:
http://carbondale.craigslist.org/for/1417927235.html

He says, "Just bought a gas grill, so no need for a charcoal grill."

Why, why, WHY do people who already have a charcoal grill (and a nice one, at that) think that moving to gas is a step up and a reason to get rid of their charcoal? Why, somebody, tell me, why???

Okay, I'm gonna go back to writing my sermon. Thanks for letting me rant.

I've gotten my best score from people who have "upgraded" from charcoal...

Until then, remember that you CAN smoke on a gas grill. It's not quite the same, but works okay...

I am waiting for the day Dan's sermon is about the perception of upgrading in one's life and the homily of the misguided who think they are upgrading to gas who already have all they need with charcoal...

Doesn't sound too far off base - if you change a couple of words - maybe the homily to the misguided who think that they must upgrade their salvation, who already have all they need in Christ.

Hmmmm....may have to work that in soon...

People are different; and have different needs, and desires.
Gas grills are much easier, and faster, to use for cooking.....not better....just different.
Many people don't know what REAL smoked food tastes like (BBQ).

With Gas grills...I think you get more of a pure flavor of the meat....with charcoal
you get the meat flavor along with the Charcoal flavor....and of course with smoke,
you get the smoky flavor.

People are just different.

I got a nice 22.5 kettle for $15 from a couple that upgraded to gas. He looked at me funny when I was excited to give him $15.
