Actually I think someone who is learning the basics of grilling ought to find out pretty early on that grilling is not barbecuing. I think the subject of barbecue vs. grilling is on-topic in this thread.
I guess this kind of ties in with the sort of fanaticism people have about barbecuing (me included). The fact that people take barbecue so seriously is one of the most fun aspects of the whole thing.
PS – I’m defintely not saying barbecuing is better than grilling, they’re just different. I like both and do both as often as I can. [:)]
