Charcoal. We like the flavor better! We use a Weber fold and go grill, which is perfect for the two of us, and we can grill sausages or hot dogs for a small party on it.

The other advantage of charcoal is it makes a good bed of coals for the evening fire, so you don't have to bring out your survivalist skills to get that campground firewood to ignite.

In the old days, we used charcoal- Now we use the propane grill because of the convenience- However, my son uses charcoal for his grilling and his product is far superior to mine- As fulltimers, we don't have storage space for charcoal, etc.- JHMO-DD

Weber grill and charcoal for us. I've been cooking on Weber's for over 20yrs, I just can't stray away from it (and probably never will)!

I cooked a very tasty pineapple upside down cake in my Dutch oven a few weeks ago. I love mine.

I use all of the above. I enjoy a natural cook fire, but charcoal is second best. I do carry a gas grill in case of bad weather or a fire ban like we had most of last season.

I don't know about the Mesquite being the natural wood of Texas but the flavor you get with taking fresh cut long strips from a mesquite bush and cooking that into your steaks, bacon and eggs, and all the other fine food sure is great. I do this at the off trail camping spots in Texas and New Mexico. Got to be fresh cut mesquite strips to get really get the biting mesquite flavor. Buying the mesquite wood chips from the stores doesn't come even close to cutting them "green" fresh off the bush.
