Jennyema,

Here is a link to sauces and the best info about barbecue on the net. (notice the spelling of BBQ, there are many ways to spell it also)

Finishing Sauces

Barbecue

Lump charcoal is the only way to go... However on screen we use gas half the time, just because the camera is rolling and we are under that time constraint thing.

Those briquettes have never entered my yard.

BBQ no matter how you spell it is a method of long/slow cooking over wood coals.

It is not a device you cook on.

It is not sauce.

Grilling is cooking high heat and fast, no matter what the heat source.
Are you a NC native? NC is the most guilty for called their method/meat/spiced/sauced BBQ. I'm from New England I can still remember when I went to NC being asked if I wanted BBQ, my answer was always "BBQ what?". :)

Folks, Raine has been inactive here for some time so its unlikely she will answer any of these questions. Sorry.

Edit: Also please note the date this thread was started...2005, stuff gets resurrected once in a while, I just don't want to see anyone disappointed if they don't get any answers.

Interesting. Of course I know that the demographic here is by far the majority N. american, but I plead you to be merciful with those of us who aren't from N. America to whom a BBQ is indeed the device upon which we cook! In Uk and some of the other commonwealth countries grilling is what you guys call broiling. I try and remember to give both terms when posting here, as I say, I'm concious we are in the minority, but it is still correct for some of we users of this forum!

Those of us who regularly cook low and slow over coals and/or wood use the word "barbecue" as either a verb to describe that action, or a noun to describe the food produced by that method. Not in the same sentence, however.

"I can barbecue a great brisket" or "I cook great barbecue".

Before I learned how to barbecue, I, too, used the word to describe grills, cook-outs and burgers and dogs.

Hearing the word "misused" (if you will) is like fingernails on the chalkboard for us bbq'ers. But I've learned that people REALLY don't like being corrected, when everyone around them, all of their lives, has called a gas grill a "BBQ". So I cringe and keep my mouth shut.

Bacardi, I believe that North Carolinians generally limit their use of the noun "barbecue" to barbecued pork, and more specifically, pulled pork butt. Not sure if that's the same in Tennessee, but the Memphis in May competition circuit is all pork.

Lee, I know how it makes some of you cringe. Raine and I had a rather long and involved discussion about this on another board several years ago. Its one of those things that you just have to accept as having more than one meaning. In certain circles and locales it means one particular thing, and in others its something very different. Neither is right, and neither is wrong. We just all have to accept the different meanings a term has. Its wonderful that on a board with so many diverse cultures on it we can all learn to use words interchangeably so that we are all understood.
