Barbecue is cooking slowly over low heat. Grilling is cooking hot. You can't barbecue with gas. Just don't work. That said, you wouldn't catch me grilling over gas either. Charcoal for grilling, charcoal and wood (I like about 3 parts charcoal to 1 part wood, depending on the stage of cooking) for barbecue.

Thank you thank you thank you.

What most people call barbecue is actually just grilling.

Next couple weeks we're going do to a brisket...it will take about 14 hours or more. Smile Depending on the size.

It has to be babysat too...can't let the temp get too hot or cool.

We have used 151 to light the fire. That was interesting, but I wouldn't recommend it.

My husbands family is from South Carolina (so glad we live here in Portland) anyway years ago when his family vacationed at the beach they'd buy a whole pig from the butcher, cover it in aluminum foil, bury it in the sand with a bunch of lit charcoals, spend all next day playing in the ocean or sun bathing, then in the evening dig it up, eat it. It was amazing. It would be under the sand slowly cooking for almost 24 hours and the meat just fell off the bone.

Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Save the small bits of charcoal from each bag, dump 'em in a five-gallon bucket or other bin, when you get near the end of the bag. When you're starting your fire, make a mound about 4" around, about 1" high of the small pieces and charcoal dust you've put in the bucket; it will act as a sponge to soak up the starter fluid. Put your starter fluid on that: that is your kindling.

I will be grilling a boneless New York strip over mesquite charcoal tonight, mushrooms sauteed in butter and olive oil on the side, and a salad.

Gas is for kitchenfolk.

I'm coming over. I like my steak medium rare.

It came out great --

Having spent twenty years out in SoCal, I will confess that the two terms have become interchangeable in my speech. I almost always grill and very rarely barbecue.

But when I do, I make my own barbecue sauce. If you're gonna do it, do it right.

We used to be friend's with a Hawaiian couple that did that for special occasions.

Also had it at a luau in Hawaii. (tho, I gotta say when they pulled it out of ground and walked it around...it was kinda gross. Smile

I got some pictures tho and it was freaking yummmyyyy


But as if to knock me down, reality came around

When the baby fat runs down into the charcoal it causes too much smoke, that’s why I prefer "Baby” back ribs cooked on a gas grill. [Image: BVhAhdR.gif?zoom=2]

If you want a piece of meat that tastes like it's dipped in kerosene -- by all means -- use propane.....

...

Blech.....

RE: Barbecue.... gas or charcoal?
oh.....

And something I seen at the store ---

They carry the "Blue Rhino" brand of propane (in 20 lbs bottles) -- and the company's logo is "It's more than just propane"...


Really???

What the fuck else is in it?? Chlorine? Bromine? Methane?

Jesus -- the propane makes a bratwurst taste bad enough -- I sure as hell don't want all that other shit.....

I want a brand of propane that IS just propane, thank you very fucking much.....

RE: Barbecue.... gas or charcoal?
I do prefer charcoal over gas but am OK with either for grilling (depending on the time I have). Over the winter I bought one of those pellet smokers and have been making some great ribs on it. The steaks I smoke until center is medium rare and then take them inside for a reverse sear in a piping hot cast iron skillet. They come out tasty and so tender using this reverse sear method.

Funny people, using charcoal and some fuel to make bbq... Real man chop down trees and use WOOD for their bbq. And not just any kind of wood, the best one is holm oak, or Quercus ilex.

P.S.

I know this is not a bbq, but it's even better and I didn't have any other pictures. So fuck you.
