That’s not a barbecue, New England- that’s a cookout

Posted on Posted in Inspiration

In the North, we called a cookout a BBQ.  That’s actually quite incorrect.  Technically, a BBQ always involves cooking meat slowly in smoke at a low temperature, where as a cookout is just throwing some burgers and hot dogs on the grill.  I personally don’t like real BBQ, but I still insist on calling a “BBQ” what it really is.




I'd love to hear your thoughts!
