Barbecue is Barbecue, Grilling is Grilling..

Hey folks we've gotten away from the categories here
at BBQCentral.

I'm sure everyone knows the difference between bbq and grilling.
And if it's made in the oven, it should go in the General section.

No biggie, but let's get it right.

Thanks.

Re: Barbecue is Barbecue, Grilling is Grilling..

Well there is grilling then there is direct bbq cooking..which is simply slow grilling. Think it has to do mainly with the speed of the operation, distance twixt the fire and meat etc. So in certain cases think it hard to differentiate the two processes. Somebody needs to be in charge of sorting all this stuff out.

Re: Barbecue is Barbecue, Grilling is Grilling..

Since the 1950s, the USDA has required that all products so labeled must use meat cooked to 70 percent of its original weight, with the lost fat and moisture eventually combined with sauce and sold as a canned or frozen product. This is no longer true.

Leaner meats produced today means less weight loss. But the direct/indirect argument is moot.
Classic bbq was cooked direct over coals. Most modern bbq is indirect.

However, I think it's pretty simple to tell which is cooked low and slow with smoke, and
which is cooked hot and fast, and what is cooked in a crock pot.

Well some of the reputed best bbq in Tejas comes from Coopers in Llano which aint nothing real slow or low about it. They go about an hour per pound direct over coals for brisket anyway. Then they loosely wrap in foil reduce the heat and let it swelter till it dies and gives up. Now aint ate there personally so some of this may be just rumors. Now they do supposed to use small briskets which a person could cook a 7-9 pound steak in a shorter time frame most likely. Whuts a Mother to do?

and Myron Mixon famously cooks "hot and fast".

Seriously....in this forum, do we need an official definition?

It's either bbq, grilled or baked steamed...let's keep smoked
foods here.
