Few topics in life inspire such passionate debate as politics, religion, and—evidently—whether gas or charcoal grilling is better. In some parts of the U.S., barbecuing is kin to mysticism. What is the true nature of barbecue sauce? Which ingredient unlocks the secret flavor? How does smoke enhance the savory experience?
At Weber, we’ve heard it all. So, at the risk of offending the devout, we offer our insights into the great debate. Basically, we’re non-partisan. Any grilling is good grilling if it suits your needs and tastes.
We recommend the method that fits your lifestyle. Some folks feel a basic human need to make fire; they enjoy the hands-on experience of lighting charcoal. Some even like a challenge of charcoal grilling in cold, wet or windy weather.
