BBQ or Grill? Summer time cooking

So are you BBQ'ing tonight? Or maybe Grilling? Wait, what's the difference?

Barbecue is usually cooking and smoking the meat over wood or charcoal. Barbecue is typically a much slower method utilizing less heat (210F or lower) than grilling. Grilling is typically done at a higher radiant heat (500F+), with the source coming from above (broiling) or below (think gas grill).

Lower heats are best for fish, ribs, brisket and larger cuts of meats that need a long slow cooking process. Grilling on the other hand is great for burgers, steaks and sausages. Chicken can go either way.

BBQ is a world wide practice, with seasonings and sauces varying. In Jamaica - spicy jerk reigns.  Bulgogi in Korea brings out the soy sauce flavors of marinated beef. Asia has satay, India has the tandoor ( a clay oven that uses low slow heat for yogurt marinated meats and naan) In the Mediterranean, olive oil is key for their kebabs, and the Germans favor pork. Scandinavia does all meats, with wild game making an big appearance. Latin America is known for their whole pig bbq's. 
The US has the most (I am guessing) heated debate on BBQ. The sauce in particular. We have the vinegar sauces of the south. The tomato based sauces of the midwest. Beef in Texas, Pork in the South. Memphis uses a dry rub to cook then a wet sauce to finish their ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. In the Carolinas, they use the dry rub and mop with a vinegar based sauce during cooking. In South Carolina, there is a tri-sauce approach - mustard based sauces in the central area of the state, a ketchup based sauce in the west and vinegar and pepper sauce on the whole hog on the coast. In Kansas City,  the meat is smoked with a dry rub, then a molasses sweetened thick sauce is served to eat.

In Texas, the meat varies from the southern style, to cooking the cow's head. In Virginia pork reigns, with a sauce of vinegar, peppers, corn, tomatoes and bourbon. California is known for tri-tip, a cut of beef from the bottom sirloinprimal cut. It is a small triangular muscle, usually 1.5 to 2.5 lbs. per side of beef), done in a Santa Maria BBQ style of salt, pepper and garlic salt grilled over red oak and served with toasted french bread. 
Hawaii has it's luaus, where the pig is buried in the sand with coals and banana leaves.

Wood plays a big part in BBQ too - adding flavor and of course that smoky flavor.  There are many to choose from, so I share this chart to help you choose.

So weather you choose pork or beef, dogs or fish, enjoy your summer grillin' and BBQ'ing season. And don't forget to grill some veggies and fruit for a balanced meal. And for all you vegans - their are lot's of great options for burgers, sausages and even tofu on the grill.....but perhaps more on that for another blog.

I am much interested in the difference between BBQ and Grill. Since I've heard that it is much safer if I used Grill to cook.

Bitterness is a sensation often considered unpleasant characterized by having a sharp, pungent taste. Dark, unsweetened chocolate, caffeine, lemon rind, and some types of fruit are known to be bitter. Thanks.

No other vegetable can match the ruby intensity of the beet. Lore has it that beets are good for your blood, literally and figuratively. So while they take a little time to cook, they're certainly worth it. Thanks.

chan luu on Thursday, May 09, 2013 2:29 AM

If you didn't know that there was rose butter in this cream, one whiff and there is no mistaking it. It's an inspiring, uplifting chan luu designed to motivate you to make positive changes in your life, sans the chan luu motivational speaker nonsense.The 80s-inspired "Marc By Marc Jacobs Clutch" kit includes 3 neutral shimmers and a teal shadow, cherry coach purses,blush and mascara. Our own Megs was just recently debating whether to keep or return her own chan luu bracelet - no word on her final verdict just yet.Accompanying Blunt at the star-studded gala was her husband, The http://www.usitccoachpurses.net coach outlet store, who buttoned up in a bespoke Tom Ford tuxedo derived from coach purses outlet-certified wool.That means if she doesn't like it, there's no cost to return it. After all, we think that the hard-but-handcrafted look of the Marc Jacobs Sale translates quite well to the little metal http://www.marcjacobssale.co.uk Marc Jacobs UK that have been popping up from coach outlet in recent seasons.Set in a future in which humanity mastered interplanetary spaceflight, an alien lifeform, dubbed cheap coach purses to its insect-like appearance, is discovered, leading to http://www.marcjacobsbagsstore.com marc jacobs bags store.Yes, it's probably a little pricey for your spring budget, but it's definitely a show-stopper and a worthy spring http://www.voguecoachoutlet.com coach outlet online piece.
