Propane, charcoal or wood

What's your preferred method of heat while bbq'n? Does it depend what you're grilling? Pics of your bbq or custom outdoor kitchen. Let's see em

As for me, I really like the mesquite briquettes. I've always felt that if I was gonna use propane gas I might as well cook on the stove lol. Just my opinion.

I prefer lump charcoal, with a gas chimney starter. No lighter fluid or electric starter. There's no better grilling flavor than that!

Any particular brand for charcoal? I've tried it in the past but i couldnt get past the strong odor. Maybe just the brand that I was using...

Cowboy brand hardwood lump charcoal. The regular stuff, not the mesquite. I go through a 40 lb bag every 3-4 weeks. Grill year round too (Even in snowstorms. Can't stop a man and his grill!)

Smoking with vineyard wood is real common around here. Almond as well for grilling.

We have apple and cherry trees in our yard, so we'll usually have some smoke of some sort in there...

Usually charcoal especially on the weekends, but if it's a quick meal we usually fire up the gas in the interest of eating at a normal hour.

Gas definitely the quickest. Looks like wood is one of the preferred methods on here... It does take its time however to be "ready". My dad use to love using almond. He'd fire up the grill with it and we'd take off to church. It be just right 2 hours later when were back lol

I should add when pressed for time I fire up the gas grill and throw a few small chunks of wood in to give that smoky flavor
