Gas or Charcoal

Whats you're BBQ method of choice

I have both...but i always turn to my charcoal 22" Weber (needs a new grill top btw), EVERY single time..for chops, chicken, steaks, dogs, fish...everything...even veggies.

It takes a little skill to work with the charcoal just right. But you cant beat being in the the yard in the Florida heat, with beer in a cooler, a few friends to BS with and 1hr of grilling meat thats been marinating for 4-5 hrs to perfection.

Then everyone digs in and you have a smile on your face, because everyone is loving it.

I grill no less than 4 days a week

I run both. I like the smell and taste of coals, I like the ease and price of gas.

If 'ive got time, i'll use coals, something quick, gas. both are better than indoors, me using all three is better than my wifes cooking. (don't tell her I said that....)

True!

I guess I'm a sissy... I prefer the flavor of charcoal, but I have a hard enough time disposing of ash from my fireplace.... Charcoal was just another pain in the butt, so I switched to gas.... We grill a lot more often now..

I never really cooked on a grill for some reason. Either we didn't have one or Greg did it. I like cooking over a fire! Some of the best chicken wings I've made were over the fire

My Dad has retrofitted his grill to be cook with charcoal or gas but he likes using those little wood chunks too

Gas

Waiting for the coals to get hot, coal dust on your food while cooking if its windy, hot and cold spots and then dealing with the Charcoal ash afterward all are reasons why I personally don't do charcoal.

Its a heated debate(pun intended) but to each his own just as long as you're grilling dead animals outside. And beer is a must

Stop up. I usually end up giving away a few hundred pounds of venison every year.

Stop up?? Stock up? I know that lots of people love to hunt and they get too much for themselves. But I'm in eastern NC, you're too far away!

I use gas for burgers and steaks etc. But apple, cherry or hickory goes in the smoker for real BBQ.
For grilling it doesn't really matter what you use, the food is not on long enough to make much of a difference. Grilling with lid closed tight is best for a little smoke flavor. I grill or smoke food nearly every day.

Jim, that looks awesome! At some point I would like to have a big chunk of woods, near the water and an outdoor living area with kitchen. That would be a nice addition

you got ALL the nice stuff!


andreafahy

If you weren't so far away, I might could accommodate you on that depending on how this year goes. Most people do their own processing, but there are a few shops for that. some of them sell it also, might want to check your area to see if there are any and if they do sell it. Laws might be different from state to state on selling it. You could ask though, they probably would.

Pink shirts are great it's when you start with the pink underthings with the little bows that you need to worry. LOL

That makes me happy and disapointed all in one! I'd be happy to clean it myself (would be an awesome skill to learn, can do fish although nothing compared to deer, almost got myself to do chickens but we gave them away at the time instead) I was intrigued reading the slaughtering of pig in Grapes of Wrath the other night. I need to find a jeeper/hunter around here, lol. I'm all about self-sufficiency and anti-commercially raised foods

hahaha, our neighborhood is FULL of deer and I hate it here. It's supposed to be wildlife friendly but they thin the deer and geese and everything else b/c the old people insist on planting delicious foods for them and complaining. It's such a shame. At least once a year they bring through bow and arrow hunters and they refuse to tell me what happens to all of the deer and goose carcasses. Yankee turds, they probably just dispose of them instead of utilizing the poor things as a food source.


** yet hunting is not permitted... WTF?

We have a locker here in town that procesases them free and donates the meat to the food pantries in the area. I usually take them 4 or 5 between me and my son.

Probably due to it being in a neighborhood or near one is why it's not permitted.
I've got several on my property but won't touch them because of the range to other houses. rifle bullets travel far and go through walls pretty easy.

LOL, well it's rather woodsy and I live at the end where there are hardly any people, but I suppose you make a valid point. It might not be terrible if a bullet did go through someone's walls around here though

Andrea most towns that have bowhunts to thin the animal population send the animals to a local locker and donate the meat to a county food shelf.


Jim that looks like fun. I have cooked several hogs in the ground, always a good time. I love the skin. num num. Takes a good six hours in the ground how long in your "Microwave"?

I would hope so, but their incessant refusal to answer my question makes me wonder. And beside, the deer population seriously is not problematic. As in, only one baby has been spotted this year. And we have only ever seen one buck, a young one at that. It's just a sick area, humans came in, pretend to be respectful of the wildlife and do nothing but complain and call in wildlife removal. Even the raccoons don't have a chance around here. Mama 'coon was out in the day along the marsh for food (normal behavior to forage for food animals out in the daytime and while with babies) and I guarantee someone called it in as a "rabid danger" I wish these idiots would open up their eyes and learn something once in a while.
