Preferred way of cooking? Gas grill or Campfire?

We use our Gas Grill a lot;

However, this is how we really like to BBQ;

Prefer charcoal and have several Weber charcoal smokers and BBQs, however there is something to be said for the convenience of propane. Just today I picked up another Weber Q200 to leave in the TT so I don have to drag my Q220 out of the back yard every time we pack up. I like turning it off and being able leave the campsite at times, can't do that with charcoal or a campfire.

Campfire all the way!! Only in bad weather do we revert to the gas grill.

I prefer the taste of a charcoal cooked meat, but love the convenience of gas. I'm throwing in the towel and buying a gas grill at the end of the season. On our last trip, we had to buy firewood locally and it rained heavily the night before....the wood was rather damp and it was probably 45 minutes before I got a good fire going and ready for the brats. The DW knows I get a little grumpy when I get hungry.

We use a gas grill outside and an electric grill inside.

We use the campfire for all our cooking or will use the outdoor stove if the weather is too bad....haven't had to use it yet though.

Gas Grill - I'm camping, supposedly relaxing - why would I want to have to clean up another mess. Turn it off and I'm done. With charcoal, you have to put it out, make sure it's out, then find a place to dump the coals, plus you have to carry the charcoal. No thanks, I want too relax, ok, I'm done - give me a beer.
