This would be a great thread that I would like to read. Has this been discussed before?

It's really not about my way or your way. It's just a matter of grammar. I cook stuff all different kinds of ways. But I do not call it BBQ unless it was cooked long and slow over fire.

Doesn't say anything at all about tomatoes, mustard, beef, pork or anything else. Just the process. And the vinegar and spices.

I believe you mean "definition", not "grammar".

Nope I mean grammar. A system of rules about word usage that defines the structure of a spoken or written language.

But your first post said it had to be pork? Where does that come from?

Holy cow it says BEEF! The Texas boyz will be able to sleep now...

Please note funk it does not say McRib and McRib can't be in the "or the like" category, because we can't guarantee it is real meat.

I say pork because it is the original BBQ. Traditionally, buffalo was jerked, or cooked fast directly on coals or stewed.

dictionary dot com has that definition because that is becoming an accepted usage thanks to Kraft foods. They are really the ones responsible for all the confusion. The Webster's definition has been the same for 300 years and describes exactly what BBQ is. Pork and venison were the two types of meat most frequently cooked this way.

Now, since the 1500s people have referred to pork as BBQ. It has only been in the last hundred years or so that the Texas style has been developed. And it has only been in the last 50 or so years that people began generically calling anything cooked near a fire as BBQ.

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be a duck.
If it walks like a pig and talks like a pig, it must be BBQ.
If it walks like a steer, and talks like a steer, it must be smoked brisket, steaks, veal, etc.

This is really just a regional disagreement. I prolly wouldn't do well in a contest out west because all the judges would be wanting something that tasted like the garbage at Tony Roma's. I think the opposite is true also.

In the Carolinas, we have all four of the major sauce groups. Why? Because it all started here. One thing we generally don't do though, is apply the sauce. That is for the consumer to do. I want people to be able to taste what I cook, then taste my sauce. I do occasionally sauce chicken pieces on the grill, but come on, chicken's not really meat anyway.

We're not talking 300 years ago. And I would guess originally, if was fish and any other game caught that was thrown on the stick pits.

And Mr Webster's definition above still doesn't mention pork or any other meat. I guess we can agree to disagree.
