The only time BBQ should be used as a noun is to describe pork cooked over a low fire for a long time.

You can BBQ beef, goat, chicken, potato chips, peaches, just about anything. But when it is cooked, it is not BBQ, (noun). It is BBQed, (verb), beef, goat, whatever.

Most people make the mistake of misusing this word. It is mostly because they have never seen or eaten real BBQ. It's kind of like calling all facial tissue Kleenex.
