I have just about swore off charcoal. If the gas grill cant handle it such as with hamburgers hot dawgs ect...the electrictrified ECB is standing by and ready to rumble. Have cooked split chickens...pork loin and brisket on it so far. All them items has turned out good. I dont really think charcoal adds much flavor to the meat and if it do add some it usually aint the flavor a person would normally ..depends on the brand..whut is the flavor of your Gulf Light etc.

I will definately use the charcoal. I kind of have to right now. I had a kind jesture sent my way in the form of 100+ bags of briquets. Not high quality lump mind you but I'll wear it out for free.

A Smokey Joe is perfect for a small cook like that. Kids love em too.

That's what I got the Smokey Joe for, just a few dogs and a burger or two, doesn't take that much charcoal or that long to light them. I'm usually cooking by the time I get the onions run through the chopper, and whatever else cut up I'm having.
