Gas Vs Electric: The Factors

If you had an obtainable option what are all the factors to consider?
Whats the story for someone who may not be quite sure how to decide.
 
Yep, you guessed it....that "someone" is me! 
 
ex:  if you could opperate a flat grill with either what would you prefer and why (pros/cons)?

    This was my initial position too.  The unit I'm looking at is $1k more for propane set up and I'm not sold on the need/desire to save 10 minutes on the fire-up time.
     
    Do you think temp consistancy would be the same if running constantly?  I am fully educated on temp drops and recovery times (ie.  when cold food hits a fryer and drops the temp and the time it takes the fryer to be true again).

    You need to have as much equipment on propane as possible. How are you going to power all that 220v stuff when you are mobile?
    I average $3900 a year in propane, $600 for shore power.

    I'm looking at 1 piece of equiptment that has a 3p/1p option.  I'm just wondering if there is an advantage to the 3p and if it's worth it to go out of the way to accomidate it.  What do you think?

    Put up a link to the equipment.
    From what I understand, 3 phase is for large draw upon start up, I think more commonly used in industrial applications, motors , big welders, etc.
    How would you power 3 phase with a generator?, it would have to be a big one.
