If you are going to cook prime quality beef you want gas, because the drippings going to the charcoal will have an effect altering the meat flavor.

I preffer gas anyway tho.

i wonder if two mechanics argue about claw hammers and ball-peen hammers.

charcoal grill is a tool
propane grill is a tool
both are good at some things
both are adequate for cooking meat
each excels at a certain job but they have overlap

I've worked for a number of chefs that have said that the wood you smoke with doesn't matter and you'll never taste any actual difference.

I actually tested this and blind taste-tested it and it is true. Nobody can tell the difference.

Seasoned grill bars matter though.

Are you even serious?

First off, gas is a liquid, while charcoal is a solid. Gas has a very bad sort of petrolium taste, unless it has a very high ethanol content in which case it tastes of alcohols. Charcoal on the other hand tastes sort of neutral, but is still pretty nasty.

Why the fuck would you want to be fooling around tasting gas or charcoal anyway? Putbthebgasbin in the tank of your car, use the charcoal in your grill. Drive to the grocery store, buybabsteak and grill the thing til it's done as you like it.

For the love of Mike. You people ask the stupidest questions.

>> No.6515487

Bunch of retards in this thread

Propane has vaporizer bars above the burners removing the "petrolium taste" if there even is one.They also work similarly to charcoal when meat juice falls on the bars it fizzles and smokes giving a smoky taste to meat you.

Bunch of plebs if you have quality meat cook it inside.

The petroleum taste was from gasoline, not gas.

I've never heard of anyone cooking over gas. There is kerosene, often for backpacking stoves, but people use the kerosene to heat the pots and pans, not as flames to directly cook the meat.

>> No.6517059

I never thought I would see a discussion as ignorant as this anywhere.

Retards who think that a gas grill burns gasoline. I guess if they try that, Darwinism will take care of the human race.

What is really scary is if they don't try to burn gasoline in a gas grill and so they don't kill themselves in a terrible, fiery death, reproduce, and teach their kids this crap.

>>6517111

Except for the fact that propane contains foul-smelling chemicals that were deliberately added to it in order for people to be able to smell gas leaks.

Oh, and there's a few other differences too:
Propane is much faster to light & get up to temperature so it's more convenient.

On the other hand coals (either wood or briquettes) radiate a lot stronger heat than a gas flame does.

Your is possessive.
You're is a contraction for "you are".

Don't try to argue. Don't bother with the excuses. Stow any attempt at a snappy comeback. Pull this matter into your conscious mind, learn it, get it out of the way, then let it fade out. You will then automatically do it correctly, near every single time, forever. And you'll never hear about it again.

>Except for the fact that propane contains foul-smelling chemicals that were deliberately added to it in order for people to be able to smell gas leaks.

No. Propane does not contain such odorizers. That is for natural gas used in pipeline systems.

Propane is not natural gas although natural gas may contain some propane in addition to other gases.

Propane is not used to distribute to houses through pipes and no odorants are added to it.

Also, for what it's worth, the odorants are added in very tiny quantities. In the quantities used, I wouldn't expect them to have any impact on flavor.

>No. Propane does not contain such odorizers.

You've got to be kidding me bro. Have you never used a propane grill before? Or a propane torch? Bottled propane contains the exact same additives that natural gas in a pipeline contains. Just google "propane odorant" for a zillion sources.

>> In the quantities used, I wouldn't expect them to have any impact on flavor.

Our natural gas doesn't even contain an odorant. Of course, the well is a couple of hundred yards from the house and has no facilities for adding an odorant.
