If it flies, swims, roams the earth, or grows out of the ground, you can smoke it, char it, grill it, or slow-cook it.
Let BBQ Fool® be your guide to outrageous outdoor cooking, grilling, and barbecue!
“BBQ,” “Bar-B-Q,” “Bar-B-Que,” “Barbecue,” “Barbeque,” “Barbacoa,” “Barbecoa!” There are many names for it! But what's right?
Although no one truly knows the complete origin of the word barbecue (If they say that they do, they'd be lying), we all have seen the many variations of the term. Barbecue “purists” insist that “real barbecue” is the slow smoking of various meats at low temperatures for long periods of time—not grilling. Grilling, charring, and all other methods of outdoor cooking have been reserved for the backyard amateur cook and are not real barbecue.
Not so any longer!
Over the years, however, the line of what true barbecue is has become blurred. Most households today use the word barbecue in all its variations to refer to grilling anything cooked outdoors over a grill, spit, smoker, or open fire. And in my view, they are right!
Why Limit Yourself?
Without minimizing the “art” that is slow-smoked meat and the “artists” that have achieved perfection in that world (and some of it is truly perfect), my view is that we have come a long way over the years and the word “Barbecue” cannot simply be reserved for any one thing. The concept of barbecue has become much, much more, AND it can indeed be much more.
As we say here at BBQ Fool®, “If it flies, swims, roams the earth, or grows out of the ground, you can smoke it, char it, grill it, or slow-cook it and make it delicious. Your imagination is your only limitation.
