Drilling down on your backyard grilling

In another thread, you said it's common for you to grill at home several times a day.

Oh my. I can't imagine grilling that often!

Can you breakdown your backyard grilling between gas and charcoal, e.g. 60% gas, 40% charcoal?

And does your family ever say, "Enough with the grilling, Dad!!! We're going out for pizza!" :D

Ha! Yes, I do sometime get a some pushback on the endless meals off the grills (but not often). Right now my equipment is about 50/50. I have a few gas grills and a few charcoal grills. My weird obsession might make a bit more sense if you know that I often use the gas grills as outdoor ovens. That is, I set them up for indirect heat and cook things like....pizza....on them.

I had to laugh reading this.

Truth be told, they do like my pizzas better than pizza for the take-out joint. I make my own dough. The recipe is in Weber's Ultimate Grilling. I also give a recipe for a Classic Tomato, Mozzarella. and Basil Pesto. This is followed by four variations that are easy to make: Mushroom and Garlic, Artichoke and Olive, Asparagus and Lemon, and Fontina and Pesto.
