    I’m a Texan and the article is correct about the difference between BBQ and grilling. Hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill are not BBQ and I cringe when people refer to it as such.

    I actually own a smoker (BBQ pit) and I take offense to those types of people. Smoking or barbecueing meat properly takes a lot of practice and could be considered a “talent” in a way. Not everyone can do it.

    And you are wrong about sauce. BBQ sauce was originally the drippings from the meat (from actualy BBQ’d meat)mixed with another liquid (vioegar, ketchup, etc.) The crap you buy on the shelf at the grocery store is NOT barbecue sauce. When I smoke a brisket or ribs, that grocery store crap does not even come close to my meat.

    If you are curious….I soak the meat overnight in beer and then put a dry rub of various seasonings on the outside, then I smoke it for several hours with hickory or mesquite wood. MMMM delicious.
