Yes usually food:)
Some gas bbq's have lava rocks for flavour where others have flame tamers flavouriser bars triangle shaped metal burner covers so when the meat drips fat it causes the smokey taste effect
NO! Coal is for a coal BBQ - gas bbq's use gas - hence the name.

Coal bbq's taste better - gas ones - well you may as well cook on the stove...
I agree with Bigfootpete, I had a gas BBQ and the food just tastes like it has been grilled on a cooker, I think a coal BBQ gives a much better flavour

Snip off the regulator....go to the supplier of the gas bottle or any reputable dealer of gas bottles and ask for one of their regulators. Cost you a fiver or so , but you'll save that as the regulator in the pic is for patio gas. About 60 pounds in b n q but £25 for your size bottle from an independent dealer. Check for a supplier in your yellow pages etc. the saving will be worth it.

I found this to begin with, but as more fat dripped onto the lava rocks over time it started to produce that BBQ taste food.
Just get a screw propane regulator and use the existing gas bottle but u need a spanner to tighten the nut. The one u have is the new clip on regulator same gasbut just simply!eclip on fitting to the bottle but a very expensive bottle to buy.
