      Stan....please. I turn a knob and push a button.

        I may try that if the cast iron grates dont work. The grill pictured has the worst placed knobs of any grill I have ever seen.

            Not the point. Stan said it’s hardly more effort.

            Shovel out some ash to make room in the grill, drag out the bag of charcoal, look for newspaper, realize you and the rest of the world don’t read the newspaper and resort to pulling off about 3 feet of paper towels, cram it up in the bottom of the chimney, start dumping coal in the top, spill coal, pick up coal, turn hands black, not realize you’ve spilled a bunch of tiny pieces of coal which you walk through and sticks to your shoes, walk back in the house to get the damn lighter, finally find the lighter and then see all the coal you’ve tracked through the house, wipe most of it up, light the paper towels and realize they burn too damn fast, coal doesn’t quite get going, pull off 3 more feet of paper towels and shove it up in there, more pieces of coal fall out, have to then resort to blowing into the chimney and face is full of smoke, reek of smoke, 10 mins later dump mostly hot coals into grill

            Definitely more effort

              That process is more inefficient than our kicking game.

              • I’m about to get a grill for the lake place. I stubbed a line under the grilling deck, so I need one that’s convertible to natural gas. Have any of you ever done that conversion ?

                    No wonder you have trouble if you use paper towels. Use newspaper. Incidentally, years of charcoal chimney and wood stove experience have taught me that the Washington Post burns better than the New York Times. (My son in law, the retired lobbyist, still subscribes to both.) You're right that the prep is simpler and neater with gas, but in my opinion, the taste of the final product is much inferior.

                        • I'm going all charcoal. My gas grill in P'cola is on it's last leg. The charcoal grill I have here in SC has made me a believer. Anybody want to buy three propane tanks?

                            Turn knob, push button. This Weber is a whole different ballgame. Specially designed to vaporize most of the drippings and send that smoke and grease mist back up to the meat.
