Marm, that is because the term got diluted. From people looking to take short cuts, or companies trying to make a buck and enlarge their customer base.

That is exactly why I think we need to clear it up.

Not necessarily, true, but it could be, right?


BTW ... being from NC, do you have a good mop sauce for pulled pork?

depends on what you cook, and how you cook it.

Like I said, it is a method.

We don't mop, but probably can come up with a couple.

Maybe what I want isn't a "mop" but a vinegar-based sauce that you sorta mix with the meat or squirt on after.

I'm probably in the minority here, but when I use the term BBQ, it's a reference to a outdoor party at my place or my brother's place. What we cook and how we cook can vary drastically, depending on the day.

I rarely use the term "grilling", even though I have a gas grill and that's probably the correct term to use for the foods I cook on it. Bottom line: whether it's a grill or BBQ, just tell me where and when, and I'm there. :)

In the South that social event would be called a pig pickin'. Of course, a whole hog would have been cooked(bbq), and everybody would show up the next day and eat. So, if you say you are having a bbq you'd better be serving bbq, or you will have some PO'd guests.

Grilling is refered to as cook out. Cook out means, hamburgers, hotdogs, steaks, etc

We are a little leary of cowboy lump. It hasn't gotten very high marks from the competition circle and other bbq fans.


check out this site on the different brands of lump.

Yes, you're absolutely right in your definition of 'low and slow', but I think it's just become common use to say 'let's BBQ some hot dogs Sunday' !
I am with you on this one marmalady. I know Rainee doesn't agree with me and that is just fine. If I used the word "grilling" or the term "cook out" here, well people would think I was nuts. If I said "Come over for a BBQ" everyone would know what I was talking about. I am well aware of what the term means to many of you south of the border, but we are more flexible about it here. I am so glad we have a "Cross Over Term" thread going, I think this one is a perfect example.
