I love my gas grill. Weber Summit 470. I can go as far as chicken and ribs with it and turn out very high quality food. I cook on it all week rain sleet snow. I've said it before that the rotisserie chicken is probably my most celebrated meal.
There are some great cooks on this site. I think they recognize the egg as a useful tool. If people have elevated their craft investing more time and energy to justify their expensive equipment .. good on them. But to say the egg just makes better food without the input of the cook ... that's just drinking the green kool-aid.

There's two types of people in the world: people who feed you when they have you over, and people who have you over to feed you. For the former, spending time with you is how they bond. For the later, the meal is an expression of love toward the guests. Telling the former their Trader Joe appetizers are **** is unnecessary, while the later probably wants to know how to improve the offering.
A disaster like your buddy is created because today no one is willing to risk offending anyone, they aren't invested enough to deal with the reprocussions of shooting him straight. So in a sense, they are stuck eating **** food because that are **** friends? Or there's the fake food snobs... The worst! Lol
