May is ‘National Barbecue Month’ and while that might seem to pertain, solely, to pulled pork, it’s actually a much wider definition. Here are some ways that BBQ can be defined:
-Roasting or broiling on a rack or revolving spit over or before a source of heat (such as hot coals)
-A social gathering, usually held outdoors, at which food is cooked over an open flame.
-Cooking in a highly seasoned vinegar sauce
-Meat or seafood cooked in or served with barbecue sauce
