We have been grilling for years, not spoiled brats favorite past time, not until recently. After trying about every kind of grill imaginable, from the old charcoal ones, to gas, to electric and finally he has found his sole mate: He has fallen in love with our new Weber grill. OP, it would probably fit on a small deck, or you can get a portable, table top one.

I know: a lot of people prefer gas because it is more convenient, but we are supporters of the old charcoal grills and now he has his buddy. BTW, I am not talking about an expensive one, we are talking just under $100 and it is big enough to grill for the family when they are here.

jThanks, All. I am still thinking about this, but will keep in mind all your suggestions. I am tending toward gas, as I don't really want to mess with charcoal, and I understand electric doesn't give you any smoky flavor. But you all have given me some ideas.

Just get a gas grill that allows you to burn wood chips.

Electric will give you as much 'Smoky Flavor" as a gas grill. After all, the only smoke produced by the flame from the gas grill is from your food as it is cooking. Electric grills are the most convenient and easiest grills to operate. No gas to buy and not as dangerous either. My mother uses an electric and the results are good. The only maintenance is to make sure it does not get clogged with grease, otherwise you will have major flare-ups.
