Why is gas grilling so popular?

Gas grill cooking is probably one of the most common used methods of grilling these days merely because of its convenience factor. An individual can come home from work, change clothes, go clean and warm up the grill and within a matter of minutes be cooking outdoors and experiencing that added flavor. Some people will not marinate their meats until minutes prior to placing on the grill. My favorite is to decide what I am going to cook and marinate prior to going to work so it has soaked up all the flavor by the time I come home and place on the grill. A little preparation can go a long way.
