Thread: Labor Day BBQ?

  1. #1

    Labor Day BBQ?

    Are you going to do any outdoor cooking today? What's your menu? I'm keeping it simple, hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad and baked beans. Not sure about dessert, I may or may not make a jello poke cake.

    That's grilling, not BBQ. BBQ is a method of slow cooking meats. Hot dogs and hamburgers and stuff cooked on a grill are grilling, unless you're slow cooking it over time.

    Imagine my disappointment to find out the thread wasn't about BBQing at all. :)

    "The cooking time and method used to heat the food differentiate barbecuing from grilling. Grilling generally involves quickly heating food over moderate-to-high direct heat with little smoke, whereas barbecuing involves heating food slowly over low indirect heat, allowing the food to take the flavor of the smoke." -Wiki

    But to answer your question, no BBQing or grilling.

    Grilling-shmilling...

    Up here in Canada, BBQing is the only word we use.

    Same as saying we're going on a holiday when you all would say vacation.



    We wear toques, not ski caps or knitted caps.



    Anyhow, I knew exactly what Krys was a'talkin' 'bout.




    That said, when I was in Phoenix a couple years ago, we went to a place called BobbyQ's .... SOOOOOOOOO good! Never had steak like that in my LIFE!!!

    It's definitely a Southern thang...

    When we cook food outside on a grill, we say we're having a *Cook-out* or we're gonna *Grill or Fire up the Grill*

    Down here, BBQ always means we're having some type of meat that has been cooked for a long time, and it usually has some type of BBQ Sauce either IN it, or ON it

    I, too, assumed you didn't mean cooking out, but meant real BBQ. We were over at my parents today, and my bil grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. We also had potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans, chips, watermelon, fudge brownies and ice cream.
