You get on me about everything, dude.

I can recall two fairly recent instances where another well respected individual on this forum has said that word and posted a picture that contained it, but as per usual, you hold me to a different standard.

There's LOTS of other instances. I guess I need to garner more respect; sorry.

It's an adult forum. There's no Pokemon discussions.

Yes, but you'd do well to respect our kind hosts by not dropping the f-bomb.


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Hey, Cam, Here's a web page I found that does a pretty good job of explaining why "Barbecue" is not a verb. It is a noun, referring to the cooked meat, not the cooking appliance. The thing you cook steaks/burgers/etc on is the grill. When doing so, you are grilling.

I know, it seems like splitting hairs, but that's one of the cool things about language - all the nuance.

For some comedy relief, Here's a repost of one of my favorites, The Barbecue Song. The must-see part is at 2:45, but the whole dang thing is good. Apologies/chuckles to RickF for the accusation that he is not living in a Southern state.

Dang, that sucks, RickF.

Sorry.




I'm hungry for barbecue now.

Sure, it's a big commercialized restaurant, but I really enjoy Lucille's. It's a good way to try some of the barbecue sauces from different regions.

Thumbs up from me!

Looks yummy but also pricey!

I like Allman's BBQ here in town. Gotta love the sideways menu .pdf link.

Thanks, JP.

Before posting my response yesterday, I searched "difference between grilling and barbecuing", and on the two websites that explained the difference, it only mentioned the difference in cooking styles (as I noted) and nothing regarding linguistics. So, I used logic to deduce that if you are cooking barbecue, you are barbecuing (ergo the appliance is a barbecue), which is why I facetiously called it a f'in barbecue.

My bad, and thanks for helping me learn.

Hopefully Rick, the grilling man, doesn't hunt me down for what may be considered a sacrilegious err, by aficionados like himself smile .

I don't think I would buy another weber. While the heat is much more consistent and even (the consistency has had held up too) than cheaper grills I have had, it has been plagued with the same problems. I must say I am disappointed with how the build quality has held up in the 3 years we have had it. Not a cheap grill either. Payed well over a grand for it. The automatic push start shit the bed after one and a half years, the top inside is peeling off and now the inside burner portion is rusting and deteriorating. I guess its only a matter of time when hot spots start appearing.

That sucks. Would Evapo-Rust clean things up?

The inside top on mine is also peeling. Didn't pay $1000 for the thing, though, and it's 5 years old. Generally seems to be holding up, other than the flavorizer bars, which were not stainless.
