We recently attended the Misterton rally. Great fun and a really impressive barbecue at the end. We thought it might be a good idea to buy a barbecue for our travels but having seen examples of both types being used abroad we are stumped as to which is better - gas or charcoal. Obviously gas is easier but charcoal is the real deal. My question then is not about cooking results but more about preference and prohibition in terms of "I wouldn't cook any other way" and "we were told off for lighting it here".
