    I still like charcoal, but a gas grill hooked to the house's natural gas line is SOOOOOOOO convenient.

    I did see one grill at lowe's that was both, gas AND charcoal. It split in the middle.

    I only use charcoal grills. But, it's on the patio and the patio gets hosed down daily. So, rust around the bottom is my only issue. Other than that, my grills last a good while. I've never spent over $200 on a grill either. Tossed my last one after about 10 years I'd say.

    I have had the same grill for about 7 years, cost me about $120.00 and still works like a champ, on top of that I grill between 5 to 7 time a week. Lots of grilled chicken!

    Food cooked on charcoal just tastes sooooo much better.

    I think so. If I want to cook with gas... I'll use my oven and broiler. Same thing

A little vegetable oil and a couple of strips of bacon wrapped around them add flavor AND juiciness. Cooking at a higher heat but for less time helps to seal in the juice. I've always heard to treat a pork tenderloin as a four-sided cooking issue. About 3-4 minutes per side, check for an internal temperature of 145-150F, then take it off and let it sit near the heat source for about 5-10 more minutes. it continues to cook during that time. Slice it 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.

    Good eatin'!!!
    The way i do it is trim it up real good....then heat my george foreman, or a pan with butter, up to high heat, then sear it real good on the outside, her some marks, then put it in the oven for about 30 min on 325, with butter and whatever seasoning i want

    Not when you use a smoke box in conjunction with the gas grill. Otherwise, I agree with you. But use some hickory and/or applewood to add some smoky flavor, and it rocks. Mesquite too, I guess, but it's third on the list for me.

    Usually Hickory and Mesquite. Both are readily available. But, I did order some Cherry and Apple wood to check out. And, my neighbor next door is taking down a peach tree and he said he'll give me some of that. I'll chunk that up and use it when it's ready.

    I wear out various parts, but I use it 4-5 times a week 365 days a year.
    Whatever you can make on a stove or in an oven, I can make on my grill, hell I can even cook a pizza on one.

    Same here during our hottest months. The oven is not my friend when it's 90+ degrees outside.
