NOTE: Barbecue vs. Grilling

While I am on the topic of barbecue, let’s talk about the difference between barbecuing and grilling.

I, like so many, use the words interchangeably in conversation, but really barbecue is meat cooked over low heat for a long time, while grilling is what you do to steaks and burgers in the back yard.

The event where meat is grilled is called a barbecue, so that’s where I think it all got muddled, but I don’t want to be the poindexer who invites friends to a "grilling" on my patio.

Speaking of muddled, I could go for a mojito right about now.

Here, watch an irritating video on the topic:
