BBQs and Grills

Regional language uses are interesting, too. For you Texans, or maybe it's all of America, what's the difference between a barbeque and a grill? You are differentiating between the two in your comment so I take it there is a difference. For us in Canada, at least where I come from, the terms are used interchangeably.

Get ready: I see a barbecue education coming!

When referring to the open-grill cooking appliance in these forums I've started saying "grill" instead of "barbecue", to avoid confusion.

A grill cooks by direct heat, with the flame under the food.
A BBQ cooks the food indirectly. For instance on my Weber I have four burners and a smoker burner. To BBQ, the food ( ribs or a pork shoulder for instance ) goes on the right side with those three burners turned off. I light the smoker burner ( under the box containing wood chips ) and one burner on the left side.
Cook with 225 F heat for hours and hours.
So, mine is a compromise. A grill or a BBQ.
Most of what you see in the stores are grills, not proper BBQs.

We need Greggo, the "Barbeque-Meister to chime in now with his take on this. I'm getting hungry!

Nah, no education necessary. Glenn's explanation pretty much nailed it.

Start hanging out with RVers and learn something new everyday.

I won't have to log-in until next week. I've learned enough today to last me til next weekend at least.

For reference

Examples of BBQs. The significant thing is the offset firebox and the smoke pit/meat chamber:

Within reason, yes.
