Buying a new BBQ. Should it be gas or charcoal?

I am in the process of buying a new BBQ. Obviously gas is more convenient but the more I read online the more I am led to believe that you can't beat the taste of a charcoal BBQ. I am interested in getting more opinions. Help me out. I have never BBQ'd using charcoal so I am interested in hearing what people who use charcoal have to say.
