Gas vs Charcoal: Which is Better for Grilling?
Grilling is a popular way to cook food outdoors, and there are two main types of grills to choose from: gas and charcoal. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, so it can be difficult to decide which one is best for you. In this article, we’ll compare gas and charcoal grills to help you make an informed decision.
Gas grills are powered by propane or natural gas, and they are the most popular type of grill on the market. They are easy to use and provide consistent heat, making them ideal for beginners. Gas grills are also more convenient than charcoal grills, as they can be lit with the push of a button and don’t require the same level of maintenance.
However, gas grills can be more expensive than charcoal grills, and they don’t provide the same smoky flavor that charcoal grills do. Additionally, gas grills can be more difficult to clean, as they require special cleaning solutions and brushes.
Charcoal grills are powered by charcoal briquettes or lump charcoal, and they are the traditional choice for outdoor cooking. Charcoal grills are less expensive than gas grills, and they provide a smoky flavor that many people prefer. Charcoal grills are also easier to clean than gas grills, as they don’t require special cleaning solutions or brushes.
However, charcoal grills can be more difficult to use than gas grills, as they require more time and effort to light and maintain. Additionally, charcoal grills can be inconsistent in terms of heat, making it difficult to cook food evenly.
When it comes to choosing between gas and charcoal grills, it really comes down to personal preference. Gas grills are easier to use and provide consistent heat, while charcoal grills are less expensive and provide a smoky flavor. Ultimately, the best grill for you will depend on your budget, cooking style, and preferences.

What about charcoal without wood
Haha why are they coocking basic stuff?? We want to see, steak, chicken, lamb…
Took me a solid minute to realize there was a sprinkler behind the gray hair dude
Man this guy is awesome about charcoal
I like natural gas for cheapness you can cook out every day for nothing.
The sequence at 7:22 scared me. I thought the BBQ quy was mad for a second. Kind of disrespectful of Jason if I am being honest. Also, the BBQ guy looked crushed when they said that charcoal is only slightly better.
Gee, I wonder if this guy’s biased. A Webber vs an infrared “grill”? Flames don’t touch the meat? Come on… this is NOT a legit comparison. I barbecued on a Webber for 20 years and loved the results. What I DIDN’T love was dumping out the spent coals from the grill after EACH TIME I used it. I tried a gas grill and have never looked back.
I got a quality gas grill with open flames. There was room below the fire grills for a generous amount of porous lava rock. As you cook, fat drips on the rock. After only a few (good tasting) barbecues, the rocks become seasoned. The result are then virtually indistinguishable from a charcoal grill.
King of the hill brought me here😂
You didn't have to make this video, everyone knows that charcoal is the best
I'll tell you right now. The WORST hotdog is Bar S
7:47~ Bigger meat calls for better heat.
8:16~ You can use gas for a quick blast,
but for pure heart and soul, use wood and charcoal.
Great now I’m hungry
For me, propane is for cooking dinner, charcoal is for cooking out (tho I use charcoal and wood)
Taste the meat not the heat 😂 charcoal for me tho
Grill Jesus is all about charcoal.
I felt the pain in that guys soul when jason threw the hot dog on the ground
7:24 shity move, a man cooked passionately for you and he also said before he really put effort in it. The bbq guys face after that was 100% pure. Thats was dumb
I just use wood
This guy is like an ancient shamhin who had dedicated his life to teaching people about BBQ.
never seen a man more passionate about grilling then me and i found him
Thumbs down. Why didn't you compare fair? You added wood chips to the charcoal grill, and not to the gas grill, which voids the whole comparison. This is a joke…
What does any of this have to do with making barbecue? Grilling hotdogs and hamburgers and making barbecue is two different things.
Randy: Thems is fightin’ words
Extra chilli and Wiener Schnitzel??????? Wtf is hoing on here
gas bbq- automatic transmission, charcoal bbq – manual
Honestly I prefer gas for most of the time. Because most of the time I just want a burger or two, with gas I just turn it on, but with charcoal I have to wait a pretty long time and that aint worth it for a burger or two. But when theres a cook out and loads of people getting that charcoal grill going is easy
I only have one Mistress and that's Sweet Lady Propane
I worked at a summer camp a couple years ago and we had to cook burgers and hot dogs for 300-350 people on the last week which was not a fun experience. We put two 40 pound bags of charcoal in the grill and lit the bags on fire. By the end of the ordeal we were more or less cooking on a grease fire which made flipping the burgers kinda sketchy because there would be a big flare when new grease fell. The flavor of the charcoal grease and a little bit of Heinz cattleman’s Carolina gold. Needless to say I ate quite a few burgers that day some being double and triple deckers. I think we cooked somewhere lose to 450-500 the last week because it was the family visit day so we had the campers and quite a few extra people and the staff. Fun times.
That was my nickname in my early 20's. Mikey the "flame tamer". Also "wrecking balls" was another nickname of mine.
I'm just confused why you are bbqing a hotdog at all? If you are going to bbq, get yourself some snags instead. Hotdogs should be boiled.
7:29 the look on his face of complete devestation when he dropped that hot dog on the ground.
Personally hotdogs are better on gas burgers are better on charcoal
At first i hated brians new hair but as hes styling it im starting to like it more
Oh god dad jokes at the end ffs 😀
All opinions on taste… are opinions.
Which originate from nostalgia.
Most people prefer that charred meat, because they grew up with it, you can see the passion when he talks about charcoal cooking.
Personally, I hate that gritty charcoal on my meat (the flavor of biting into char, and the health issues involved turn me off of it). I'd prefer my heat source – electric.
Minute 7:29 this HAS to become a meme.
