Grilling 101: Charcoal vs. Gas
December 20, 2017 – 08:48 am

Mom's Beef Shish KabobsIt’s the great debate in grilling: charcoal or gas.

For most masters of the grill, there is no compromising; you are either in one camp or the other. Let’s look at the issues that are inflaming the debate.

Gas Grilling

Gas-fired grilling has the clear benefit of being extremely convenient. Simply turn a knob, and say hello to your highly adjustable heat source. Gas grills are fueled by liquid propane stored in refillable tanks.

Gas grilling is clean and quick. There’s no messing with briquettes, no stacking, no lighting, no smelly starter fluid and no waiting around for the coals to glow. And once dinner is over, there’s no ashy mess to clean up. Return the switch to off, rub a metal brush over the grate and clean-up time is over.

On the technical side, gas burns clean, but it doesn’t impart much flavor to grilled foods.

Charcoal Grilling

Charcoal grilling might not offer the same level of convenience as gas, but it does boast one benefit that stands out above all others: smoke flavor. The dry, white-hot heat of charcoal sears meat quickly, creating a crusty, caramelized exterior and smoky flavor.

Of course, charcoal grilling requires more time and attention than gas, from building and lighting the briquettes to waiting for the coals to get hot to managing the flame. Since you can’t dial down the heat of white-hot coals, it’s a good strategy to leave empty spaces on the lower grill grate (areas without briquettes). These cool spaces allow for better control, letting you sear food first over the hot spots before transferring it to cooler parts to finish cooking.

Charcoal grills are also less expensive than gas grills, though the cost of charcoal will add up over the years. Charcoal is also more portable than gas grills. A bag of charcoal can easily be chucked into the car and taken to the park or beach.

And let’s face it–charcoal also involves an enticing element of danger. Playing with fire is fun. (Of course, this can be a plus or minus, depending on who’s behind the flame.)

How to BBQ a turkey on a Gas Grill? | Yahoo Answers

I have done one and used a tin foil turkey roasting pan, and added a bit of water to keep the juices from over heating, you have gauge the temp like and oven, so get the intial temp up to 350-400 and brown it, then drop the burners to low and cook it slow for 2-3 hours at 300-325..
You can add some smoking chips, to add a bit of smoke flavour, season it like a regular turkey, even baste it every 1/2 hour to keep it juicey, it is just a big oven with a lid that lifts.
