I see the advantage of a kamado style grill for longer cooks; but does it work well for quick cooks such as burgers, dogs, etc?

Yup, they work real well on short cooks too. Especially for steaks, because another advantage is the heat they can put off (over 1,000 degrees even). You can get high-end restaurant quality sears on a steak with heat this high. However, the disadvantage is that you can't fit a bunch of food on there at once. So if you're needing to cook hamburgers and hot dogs for a large group of people, then a grill with a larger surface area would be a better option.

You really need to use fresh hardwood coals to get it up that high. I use old stuff for low and slow, but you want to put on fresh stuff (mesquite hardwood is awesome) to get the killer sears. Just let the wood burn off a little first to avoid any unpleasant tastes.
