When the weather gets hot, it's time to bring out the grill and have a BBQ! There is nothing as delicious as a well grilled burger or hotdog on a hot summer day. Except, what makes a perfect grilled food? Food Theorists, I pose this question: Do you grill with charcoal or propane? Is there a difference in taste or quality grilling depending on which you use? That is what I aim to find out today! I take my food very seriously and I won't stop until we all know the RIGHT way to grill!

My dad uses propane one day I tried charcoal and my life was different it rated amazing then I asked my dad why don’t we have a charcoal grill and he said “ they aren’t as good as propane” it’s sad I had to disown him as my dad he now lives in the streets with other propane dads

MatPat, I mostly came here for Skip’s opinion on the matter. Why doesn’t skip have a CatTheory channel of his own? He’s clearly got the face, voice and charisma to have his own channel. He could test out toys and litter boxes and tell me which ones are worth buying and which ones are dirty lies.

8 meals from a propane tank? That seems awfully low.

Charcoal. I won't grill enough to require Gas grills. Though I have a large gas grill for company. My gas grill though, actually has a compartment to burn smoking pellets, giving that smokey flavour in the food. It's old and broken though so we never use it.

I actually already knew this because my dad uses charcoal but my uncle uses gas. The meats where almost always tied bit my uncles hot dogs always had more flavor but my dads vegies such as cactus and elotes (corn in englitch) always was more juicy

I'd like to throw one extra variable into this mix. If you like to use charcoal, i would highly suggest you try lump charcoal. It is pure wood in chunks, rather than sawdust and binders. It burns hotter, meaning you don't need as much, and it leaves far less ash. Thank you for the video 👍

propane is def more gooder, just because you turn it on, its hot in 5 minutes, you cook, you turn it off and youre DONE, in less time then charcoal takes to heat up charcoal isnt bad, but propane makes grilling way more attractive cooking option but its not a big process involved, its just turning knobs, granted being a dad, longer cook times = more beers drank and more time alone so.... LOL

I’ll tell you folks something here: Grilling Fish and Pork on a Charcoal Grill is an enjoyable experience. It was also enjoyable to eat them, especially when doing this as a family or a group. It was also fun waving a fan and trying to control the heat and listening to the stories that were told during that event. Overall, I love Charcoal Grills. Well, that’s because Charcoal Grills were my childhood, and that I remember my Grandpa and Dad smiling while they flipped the things being cooked. I also remembered my Mom and Aunt helping by preparing the things to be cooked. It was such a beautiful experience, and I recommend it!

Ok get a pellet smoker grill you get a nice smokey flavor and you can choose the smoke flavor (type of wood)
Aaron 6 dager siden
Why do you care what "most people like"? Get the grill that makes the flavor you like. Also, the reason the hotdogs are better on gas is that hotdogs are pre-smoked! On charcoal they get oversmoked. Cook raw sausage instead and charcoal will win over gas, like it did in the other tests.

Wood and charcoal in my opinion give more of a bonus for smoking not grilling. Smoking uses the smoke to cure the meat and any drippings fall to the ground not the separate burn chamber. This is if you want to make sausage or jerky.

It's really funny, one of the big reasons why I watched both this video and channel was because I love both Game Theory and Film Theory and wanted to support you. They have both been long time favourites of mine because I'm absolutely a nerd that loves to theorise. But the more of this channel I've watched the more I simply enjoy it because its just wholesome and fun, at a time when I really have needed it. I want to thank you Matpat, and all of the wonderful people that work on these videos for fun and genuinely enjoyable videos to watch. Have a lovely day everyone, take care and be safe right now. =)

You know that you can get the best of both worlds, right? You can go up to Lowe’s or Home Depot and buy a hybrid charcoal/gas grill for a similar price to a good-quality gas grill.

As a world leading authority on barbecuing (what grilling is really called) I have had years of experience with this question, being raised with decades of barbecue culture (aka I’m an Australian) I can firmly say, gas is superior, and they’re called sausages, not hot dogs, once again leading authority on barbecuing, years of experience, raised with barbecues, tamed them and trained them to become the best possible, okay by.
