It has exceeded my expectations in every way.

As mentioned...gas = convenience and that's about all there is to recommend it. Nobody buys a gas grill because they prefer the taste to charcoal. Personally, I've always felt that if you're going to cook a steak on a gas grill, you might as well broil it in the oven.

Almost correct, the new pro gas grills can sear steaks at very high temps and produce a great steak. They are similar to how Ruth Chris does theirs under infrared broilers.

Still hard to beat charcoal grilled steak.
