I think charcoals biggest advantage is the smell, not of the meat, but the fire. Open fire and smoke probably increases the risk of cancer and damages your lungs , but we apes like the smell anyway. And smell adds flavour , if you don't believe me , hold your nose , take a chunk of pineapple , chew for a bit, then release your fingers from your nose , the result is unbelievable. Try it.
I agree it tastes better but it's a much bigger PITA to use. Get it going, let it get to cooking temp, then cleaning it out after. Gas? Fire it on. Cook. Done.

Rick: Yeah, sure, I mean, if you spend all day shuffling words around, you can make anything sound bad, Morty.
