well you owe me a round of drinks, so I might just
put on my snowshoes and start trekking.

You know when I go to Alaska, the bears put their
food in the trees.

Who cares? It is what it it is. But it's all good. And tasty too. Only problem I have is when folk call grilling bbq.

Well not trying to be overly redundant yet again here but grilling can be bbq in my view. Just depends on the size of the fire and distance from it. Now no doubt those proud owners of offset creosote factory log burners sometimes have difficulty with the physics of the proposition

Down here in NC barbecue is only a noun and it's always smoked whole hog or shoulders. No such thing as "pulled pork", it just barbecue. Ribs are ribs and brisket is brisket.

I spent a summer in Colorado and was invited for "barbecue". When I got there they had hot dogs and hamburgers and I never fixed a plate. The host asked me after awhile why I wasn't eating and my response was "I'll just wait until the pig is done". They all got a good laugh at that.

Barbecue is the stuff that goes into your mouth. Grilling is one of the ways you prepare it. "

I'm just curious if this is kind of one of those "which neighborhood are you from" things, different things mean different things depending upon which area you are in.
I don't want to start anything with the other poster, I have seen that Internet battles are pretty much pointless, I want to hear what people who are the people I most respect about barbecue have for an opinion.

Barbecue defined

Here's a pretty good definition of barbecue that attempts to be historically accurate. It can also be an adjective. ... fined.html
