Barbecue (BBQ) is a food

Going whole hog

Pig is one of the best animals to eat. When you cook a pig (or pig meat) a particular way it becomes barbecue.

I’ve had many conversations with others about this. I’ve joined a Facebook group called “Barbecue Is Something You Eat, Not Something You Do” to help show my support.

Today, thanks to Paul, I’ve seen this video from Rhett & Link singing us through the many different southern BBQ sauces.

For the record, I don’t care for the SC-mustard based sauce. I like the sweet stuff and/or the Memphis dry-rub ribs.

    I’m sorry. I just have to disagree. BBQ is an adjective AND a verb.

  • BBQ is totally a noun, referring to yummy food you eat that is either sliced, shredded, or pulled. It is in no way a proper name for grilling out.
    And I think I love all the different kinds of sauces.

    BTW, that pig in the photo was the best pig I’ve ever had. It was from my sister-in-law’s Puerto Rican wedding reception. I forgot the name of the dish they call it, but it rocked!

  • Sorry Pam, BBQ is a food and not grilling. I have to agree with Jill. Of course I only learned this after meeting Rob and eating BBQ. It took me awhile to figure it out.

    The pig in the pic was soooooo good!!! I can’t remember the name at the moment.

  • It’s called Lechon in PR.
