    The condo where I live has just banned both charcoal and gas grills on porches and balconies. Apparently the local fire department is behind this. I'm heartbroken, but it's too expensive to move.  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/frown.gif

    Is there any electric grill that's worth using.?

    As a possible alternative - I recently bought a 1800-watt induction cooktop and a stovetop smoker. What about searing the steaks in a red-hot cast-iron pan, then finishing them in the cooker for final cooking and smoke. Sort of like sear-and-blast, but the smoker won't get much hotter than about 350, I think. Or, do the warm-'em in the smoker to 100 deg and then finish-sear in the skillet.

    I'd really appreciate ideas on how to get out of the fix I'm in; it just has to be all-electric./img/vbsmilies/smilies/confused.gif

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Yeah, I'd just sear and finish in the smoker.

    Electric grills suck.  Worthless.

    Or you can get a George Forman.  haha
