Want a charcoal grill

I've been wanting a charcoal grill so I can get the smokey flavor in my ribs, chicken, steak, burgers and anything else I can think to cook on it. I have a gas grill now, and don't plan on getting rid of it, just for its convenience.

I'd like some good grills to look at that won't cost me too much, but have good quality. Give me some ideas fellas. Thanks

I have a Brinkman charcoal grill and love it, they are not expensive and they have the adjustable coal trays that work really well for adjusting the temp.

Son of a! That unit is way out of my price range.

I'm leaning towards a Weber, kettle style. Like this Weber 22 1/2" Black - One-Touch Silver Kettle Grill - Model 741001 at Sears.com

I think that's the one I'll go with. Charcoal grilling is new to me, but I'm excited to make some awesome food on it. I feel like I'm pretty good on the gasser, but the smoke flaver will be sweet on some swordfish fillets, salmon, steak, ribs... now my mouth is watering. I'll be back to get some recipes from you guys when I pick it up, thanks

Whats your favorite briquets to use? I was thinking original Kingsford

Get a Weber kettle and a charcoal chimney starter. You won't have to use stater fluid. Been using this combo for years. Anyone that doesn't have 20 minutes to let the charcoal get hot needs to slow down a bit. I use mine year-around and I live in Michigan and it gets COLD in the winter. My wife has even mastered grilling a turkey for Thanksgiving. I used to have a gas grill but the taste just isn't the same. It doesn't matter if you use wood chips in your gas grill, it's just not the same.
