I have a gas grill, a weber charcoal kettle and a bullet shaped smoker. Different tools for different uses.
The gas grill is great for making dinner quick. You can grill a steak, or make BBQ shrimp, or chicken or shish-kabob in a hurry. Grill gets up to temp in about five or ten minutes.
Charcoal is a more involved process. Steaks and burgers taste great off charcoal, but clean up is a bitch.
Smoker is the messiest and longest process, but best way to make ribs and pork tenderloin. Best smokey flavor.
So, depending on how much time you have, and what you're trying to cook, all three are useful.
