What's in a word? Are You Barbecuing or Grilling?

With Father's Day approaching, we are hearing and seeing the usual commercials about Dad "barbecuing" in the back yard.

When Dad (or anyone else) stands at the propane grill, and cooks burgers, steaks, hot dogs, or whatever, that is called grilling, not barbecuing. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Grilling is great, and fun, but call it what it is.

And if I have to explain the difference between barbecuing and grilling to you, you'll never understand.

So, there's my (mild) rant for today.

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there!

  1. Now, now, be kind! :) *I* know the difference, but then, I'm an odd person.

    Now, do you know about the Australian barbie?
