    Interesting - I didn't know that about that pillow shaped charcoal. What we have here is usually called 'lumpwood charcoal' - not sure how that fits in. It's light weight and looks like bits of wood with splinters.

    I know this place.

    It's like one of the top two Q joints there!

    These are charcoal briguettes. We abbreviate and call this charcoal, but it's basically the same thing you showed, but pulverized, made into a slurry and molded into these little things. They have their benefits. They burn slower and more consistent than real charcoal. I much prefer real chunk charcoal for steaks or chops...

    Yeah, I use briquettes too. Depends on what I'm cooking.

    But if I'm Q'ing with wood, I always use the lump because of the way they burn when I throw in additional pieces during the cook.

    There's nothing better than a BBQ'd sirloin burger. What's not BBQ about this?

    Semantics. That pic is grilling. BBQing is smoking over low heat for a long time.

    Nothing about cooking hotdogs and hamburgers on direct and relatively high heat is barbecue, it is grilling.

    And any amateur can [or at least should be able to] do it.

    I didn't know that BBQ or Barbecue was invented in Quebec. I apologize.

    If I had only known, I wouldn't have told people who are not from where Barbecue comes from, that they're making waste of the word.

    Sarcasm? Why, yes it is.

    Next thing is, someone from Japan is going to tell Buffalonians, that Beef on Weck is made with pork or something.

    That looks delicious. If someone told me "come on over, I'm gonna BBQ some burgers" I'd assume a few things:
    1) it's not gonna take 10-12 hours like it does when I cook a pork shoulder low and slow over coals
    2) I don't have to ask them what kind of wood they're using
    3) they are cooking the burgers on a grill over direct heat
    4) they're not going to pull the burgers at 195-205F
    5) I should bring beer

    Here is one version of a "barbecue" - light up the grill, put the meat on, cook it 10-30 minutes, serve, yum!

    Here is another version of a "barbecue" - rub meat with spices, refrigerate overnight. Wake up at 4am, light coals for the smoker, put the meat on. Check the temperature every few hours and add fuel as needed. Hopefully at 4pm, if the internal temp gets to around 195-205F, take it off and let it rest an hour. Shred the meat. Serve. Yum!

    So if some of us seem grumpy when people equate the two, it's probably because we had to get up at 4am to babysit a smoker all day and we need a nap :D

    While I agree with your definition, I don't think that Texas and other low and slow locales should be allowed to dictate to the rest of the world what is and isn't bbq.

    You should be familiar with Cornell chicken. That's NY BBQ.
