The word ‘Barbecue’ represents both the cooking method and an apparatus. Barbecue, when used as a cooking method, refers to the process of cooking food, usually outdoors by placing the food over wood or charcoal. Whilst, barbecue as an apparatus is a device that cooks food by supplying heat from below the cooking surface. It is popularly known as Barbecue grill and comes in several different varieties, among those gas and charcoal are by far the most common.
The term “Barbecue” is often used interchangeably with Grilling; however, both these food preparation methods are technically different. The food that is being barbecued is cooked at a low temperature for a long time over wood or charcoal. Cooking well on low heat requires time and skills but at last, it results in a great barbecue food that is often a perfect blend of spices, natural juices, fat, smoke, aroma and tenderness. Caution; merely throwing meat on a barbecue grill is not barbecue- at least not what pros considered!
On the other hand, Grilling means you’re cooking food fast over moderate-to-high heat and directly over the fire. Both these methods are practiced in many areas of the world with little variations bring about by the geographical distances.
Traditionally, barbecue process involves digging a hole in the ground and then placing some meat, usually a lamb over the pot so that juices can be collected to make broth. The dig is then covered with ignited coal and set alight. The process took hours and the cooked product is juicy, tender and delicious!
