Taurus, an empty tank can cost you around 30 bucks, buying a full tank can be around 45. Refilling an empty tank can cost from 10 to 14 dollars around here, and exchanging an empty for a full will cost from 15 to 20.

I've only lit my gasser once since I bought my kettle about 3 weeks ago.

Eventually you'll end up with both. A gasser is more forgiving for beginners, but you won't be really good at grilling till you master charcoal or lump. I will say this....if you've got the time, start with the charcoal. If you're pressed for time, the gasser would be your most convenient option. Now get out there and buy a grill and tell us all about it!!!

Usually, I only have to build a fire under about half of my 22.5" kettle to do what I need to do.

Great point.....looking at the 22 inch kettle, you may think "That's gonna take a lot of charcoal.." Use half or even less of your grate space for the heat.
