Hi everyone - My girlfriend and I recently purchased our first house, and obivously one of the first things we need to buy is a new grill for our backyard. After reading the "Art of Summer Grilling" post on AoM, I've decided to go charcoal. It will be a pretty big change since I've always used propane in the past. I mostly cook steak, burgers, and the occasional chicken, but wouldn't mind getting more into slow cooking (ribs, pulled pork etc).

Right now I'm looking at getting a Weber 22.5" Kettle Grill. I like how affordable it is, but I don't really know how it will perform with longer, slower cooking. I'm also interested in the Kamado Ceramic Smoker/Grill, which is $599 at my local Costco. This is slightly out of my price range (something >$450 would be ideal) but is definitely more suited for low and slow grilling.

Does anyone have any other grills I should check out or advice on picking between this two?

Yep even if l am in a hurry and opt for the disposable razor , l still can't bring myself to use can foam and end up making a lather , so for me that ritual is almost ingrained now .

It all gets back to a wood fire...very primeval.

Yep and the kids can't roast marshmallows over a propane after you're done cooking.

LIke you all my previous grills have been propane but I last year I bought the Weber 22.5" grill and really like it.  If I were you I would get the grate that is hinged so you can add charcoal and wood chips when needed.  I also hear wonderful things about the Green Egg from people who own one.
