I know, a weird topic for a shaving forum.
I've been having an ongoing debate with a friend of mine for 4 years now. He has a propane supergrill. Cost over 1000 bucks and truly is a site to behold. I have a weber charcoal grill and you couldn't pry it from my cold dead hands.
I was wondering what other people think about this? I find the taste from a charcoal grill is far superior. I also enjoy the "prep time" as a little "me time". Very similar to the relaxation I got when I switched from "shaving" with a gillete fusion to grooming with a DE razor and a proper brush, a nice shave soap, etc...
My personal feelings on a propane grill is it simply is an outdoor appliance. It's fast, quick and easy. Just like cooking with your propane oven, just outdoors. I know you can purchase "smoker boxes" for them, but the little bit of wood that's used can't compare to the larger volume of wood used with a charcoal grill- and it's that smokey taste that defines bbq.
Oh- and my friend is looking at replacing his current grill with an even better one. Me, I'm hoping that my current grill lasts me my lifetime.
