take pics of your barbecues this summer

charltonlido (gareth), Wednesday, 2 June 2004 20:43 (sixteen years ago) link

I eat BBQ about 3 times a week. Had bbq'd pork roast for the first time last night, which was mighty tasty. Recently discovered that sriracha is U&K when grilling chicken wings and ribs.

Grilled some veggie burgers and asparagus the other night, which were delicious, though somewhat gritty due to inadequate grill cleansing.

Are any of those people Ambrose?

My parents sent us a BBQ for my birthday, but some parts were missing so we had to send it back. Our front patio area is looking niiiiiice at the moment though, we got some lanterns and wrought iron bistro furniture and stuff.

We had a barbecue yesterday and I shot some footage for this thread! It was a bit scary, to be honest. Fire is so unpredictable!

The problem with barbecue places around here is that they trim away the brown crusty edges so the meat will have a uniform texture. But those crusty bits taste the best! WTF? (also, they chop it up too fine) Jody, that 'cue looks great — barely touched by human hands. The slaw looks kind of manky, though.

I had 'cue at Turner Field last night when I went to the Braves game.

the slaw was delicious. it just has barbecue sauce on it; that's why the cabbage looks a little brown.

The chips look a bit burnt!

Man, I wish I had a BBQ, but Im never sure how polite it would be to BBQ on a balcony, when the smoke and smell would drift upstairs to my snooty anally clean neighbour.

i have an issue with people who refer to "cooking out" as "barbecuing"

GET IT STRAIGHT, FOOLS!!!

100% OTM. Grill whatever you want to grill, but if you're not smoking pork, don't call it barbecuing.

Truckdrivin' Buddha (Rock Hardy), Saturday, 13 August 2005 02:27 (fifteen years ago) link

THANK YOU!!!!!

finally someone who realizes the mockery made of barbecue by people cooking hamburgers in the backyard!

tehRZA gibbons (tehresa), Saturday, 13 August 2005 02:30 (fifteen years ago) link

Oh! In that case they look pretty damn yummy actually :D

Trayce (trayce), Saturday, 13 August 2005 02:31 (fifteen years ago) link

Uhm, in my country, having a BBQ means just that - using a BBQ outdoors to cook anything. And here we mostly do steak, sausages and seafood, In fact smoked pork and the like is reasonably rare. Seafood, red meat and things like corn or veggies are the go. With loads of sides like coleslaw, potato salad, baked potatos and of course PAVLOVA! :D

Mmm... love that burnt meat.

Trayce (trayce), Saturday, 13 August 2005 02:39 (fifteen years ago) link

that looks amazing... but u.s. southerners would consider it grilling or cooking out. they reserve the term "barbecue" for things like pulled meat or smokehouse stuff.

tehRZA gibbons (tehresa), Saturday, 13 August 2005 02:43 (fifteen years ago) link

or, there is such a thing as "a grill," but no such thing as "a barbecue." food that is cooked quickly on a grill is not "barbecue," which refers to food that is cooked long and slow and perhaps in a pit

I think you'll find what you call a grill in America is universally known as a barbeque in Australia and New Zealand.

Another one for the "we so different" file I guess! =)

(those burnt chops in my pic look horrible I might point out, I never did like the very aussie idea of charring your meat half to death. Ugh! I still like my steaks medium rare and cooked properly even on a bbq, dammit).

Trayce (trayce), Saturday, 13 August 2005 06:31 (fifteen years ago) link

I am going to a barbeque tonight. Huray!

You come on down to the Texas Hill Country and say that.

BRISKET ROOLZ, OK!?

Austin Still (Austin, Still), Saturday, 13 August 2005 12:00 (fifteen years ago) link

I almost mentioned the possible exception of brisket, but I wanted to get my absolutist rant out of the way first.

Truckdrivin' Buddha (Rock Hardy), Saturday, 13 August 2005 12:35 (fifteen years ago) link

brisket definitely counts as barbecue.

I think you'll find what you call a grill in America is universally known as a barbeque in Australia and New Zealand.

and it is also known as a barbeque to many, or perhaps even most, people in America. but not to devotees of barbecue, the cuisine, who are concentrated in the American South, but found worldwide

gabbneb (gabbneb), Saturday, 13 August 2005 12:56 (fifteen years ago) link


Well, the key thing here is slow-cooking the unprocessed meat* of some land mammal using heat generated by burning wood, rather than charcoal, and serving it with a savory, high-acid sauce. Dry spice rub optional. That's not going to stop people from quibbling about Kansas City style vs. Carolina style vs. Texas style, but it does provide a significant amount of common ground while eliminating certain obviously non-barbecue notions, such as chicken and hamburgers.

* sausages are the exception to this rule.

wtf are they supposed to throw another shrimp on then???

*sigh* I was supposed to be attending a great BBQ get-together today, but I've been sick like dog for three days with some viral infection or the like, so it ain't happening. And GAWD, I'm hating my stomach pains...

two years pass...

But after making money by charging adults $3 (£1.47) and children $1 (49p) to look inside the empty smoker, Mr Whisnant asked for it back.

He should switch to a "pay as many pounds as you feel is fair to look at this amputated leg" model.

one year passes...

it is so sweet knowing a dude at the local bbq joint who works the meat slicing station--epic smoked sausages, doubling my orders of brisket & pork, free ribs, large beans for the price of a small--i love u punk rocker nate at fette sau.

seven months pass...

From the "Looks like I picked a bad week to stop sniffing glue" Department, I chose the week of the local Railroad Festival to start cutting back on my meat consumption. But at least a dozen black churches in the food court have a pig + smoke genius working their pit, so I, uh, fell off the wagon. Having some 'cue nachos from Kyle's Chapel right now, got a half slab from Victory Temple for later this evening.

Learned how to make blackened chicken on the barbecue today--very suited to my wandering attention span.
