This is NOT BBQ.....

Chicken and Beef Ribs.  NOT BBQI enjoy cooking out either with my propane gas grill or charcoal grill, however, there's a difference between cooking out and having a barbeque or BBQ. My definition of BBQ is PORK cooked over an open pit with hickory coals. The picture to the left is a cookout with chicken and beef ribs over a open pit with hickory coals. It is NOT BBQ. Confused?

I have to respectably disagree with you. I think that Barbeque is a style of cooking...not just one particular food. I define BBQ as low and slow cooking over wood. That can include pork, ribs (which are pork), chicken, and beef (most often brisket). Don't limit yourself to just one kind, then you are missing out. Hey, come on over to my site at

Real BBQ is pork! It's just another instance of name generalization. To a lot of people Kleenex means any facial tissue or Xerox means any copying process. Anything other than pork is just cooked like BBQ. The only real choices are which of the four sauces are to be utilized during and after the pork is done: tomato, ketchup, mustard or vinegar and pepper. Sorry!

Hi bigpig! Thanks for the comments. I have been over to your great site. I believe Northerners have convinced some of us that it's a method of cooking. As a Southern to me "BBQ" is only pork. That's just the way I roll.

Hi orange jay! Thanks for all your comments. You said, Sorry! I don't know why? Apparently you and I are in agreement. If you are of German descent it's unavoidable..... you'll love mustard sauces.
