I have had several grills over the years, both gas and charcoal, but this one is by far the most versatile. My gas grill is still the one I use most because of the convenience, but when I want to grill meat to perfection with nice grill marks and great charcoal flavor, I use the Hasty Bake. This grill does it all; grills, bakes and smokes the meat of your choice to perfection. It is very well built to withstand continuous use, season after season. I still use my big smoker, once or twice a season, but, when the crowd is less than 20, the Hasty Bake is my tool of choice.
