Agreed. If possible, lump hardwood charcoal is king, it sh!ts on propane. If you like a REAL steak (charred and mid-rare/rare) you need heat. If you like a REAL steak (a ribeye that's 1" thick) and like it mid rare, you need massive heat to melt the fat quickly before the meat cooks. Propane is incapable of doing this, it doesn't get hot enough. I understand the convenience of propane, so no defense necessary, but comparing charcoal to propane is insanity.
