Let your meat come to room temperature before cooking. You can really get some strange results if the inside of your meat is cold when you put it on the smoker. Never put frozen meats on a smoker without thawing to room temperature first. Don’t let your meat sit out at room temperature too long though or you’ll run the risk of bacteria contamination.
Use charcoal – best gas grills under $500 work great for cooking food but can sometimes impart a gas flavor to your meat. I like to use natural hardwood charcoal started in a chimney. Don’t use lighter fluid; it defeats the purpose of using hardwood charcoal. You want to smell the steak roasting over the coals – that is the best part! Some people swear by mesquite soaked in apple juice others say you cook your steak too fast to get any benefit. Wood chips can add flavor if you are smoking your meat but that usually takes a lot more time than it takes to grill a steak. My recommendation is that if you are curious, play around see if you can taste and enjoy the difference.

Place the cooked eggplant into a bowl with the yogurt and mash them together, then mix well. Place into a serving dish.

If grilling in an apartment and not so picky about the typical barbecue taste, the electric grill is best for you. Go for it, and you will not be disappointed.
