For smoking, there's no gas smoker that can even come close to the ribs, brisket, pork shoulder, and tri-tip I make in my WSM.
I agree with the flavor aspect, charcoal adds a flavor that isnt there in gas
But to me, theres really no type of smoke you cant add with a gas grill, using a simple smoke box and wood chips.....
So for me its easier to get exactly the flavor i want by starting with plain gas, and using the kind of wood chips i want rather than using charcoal....
unless off course you are looking to get charcoal flavor, which is good...but i dont want that all the time
