I assume that there was no taste of gas as I suspect it does not use a direct flame but rather a propane heated plate like a propane soldering iron or curling iron.

I doubt you had enough experience with it to tell but how do you think the rate of propane consumption is? It seems like it could get more costly than coals.

I agree that it is a bit odd that someone so fixated on tradition would be interested in products that have pulled so far away from the traditional. Perhaps it's a matter of efficiency and function.
