In my small grill all I use is charcoal. I let it burn til itís white, then put the meat on. Donít notice any bad taste.

New rule for me. I don't reply to other threads unless the poster replies to mine.

I use both for different things. Charcoal for steaks burger and BBQ chicken. Wood pellets for brisket and ribs.

Old rule.

Iíve got charcoal on hand that I only use to start my stick smoker. My old PGS propane grill will stand beside any charcoal burner. A few years after I got that grill, charcoal was moot.

I use all three. Wood is for when I have time to build the fire and let it burn down to coals, mostly if I feel like cooking a good steak. Or at times, I just like to build a fire to have a cold beer and enjoy it - the grilling part is just a bonus.. I use the Red Oak lump charcoal for the majority of my grilling and start it in chimneys. Flavor is good, no lighter fluid and I can have the grill ready in no time.

Have a small patio propane grill that the wife can use, and sometimes if I am in a big hurry and not so worried about what I am grilling I use it. Hotdogs, hamburgers, chicken breast, etc.

I have used wood and charcoal separately and combined. Sometimes start with charcoal and add wet mesquite for the smoke. If the heat is dropping I will add a few charcoal briquettes to bring it back up.

I use oak lump charcoal, I have gotten away from using the man made briquettes, not telling what they put in those suckers.

Lump is the way to go. Briquettes are nasty.

I found some 30# bags of lump mesquite charcoal for $10. Haven't bought any in awhile but it seemed like a good price. I like mesquite for steaks.

I usually use charcoal as a easy fire starter and to heat up my pit. Once the charcoal has ashed and the pit is thoroughly heated, I then start adding cured wood, usually live oak and/or pecan and then maintain my heat by adding more wood over time and occasionally more charcoal if I am doing a long duration smoke like for multiple briskets when they stall and I need to bump the temperature up a bit.

I have found the HEB brand mesquite charcoal isn't bad but seems to not burn completely where Kingsford seems to be much more consistent. I try to find the double large bag on sale at Home Depot or Walmart for ~$10 and keep 4-6 bags on hand in the garage. I've tried several of the lump style but seems they added an odd flavor to the smoke ...
