The Difference Between Grilling and BBQing

Grilling means that meat is cooked hot and fast. Take your thawed steak and place it on a hot grill for 2-3 minutes, turn your steak from 12 noon to 1:30 pm. This will give your steak those professional grill marks that will wow your friends and family. Turn your steak over and cook to the desired doneness. Let it rest for 5 minutes lightly covered in foil to retain juices.

BBQing is done low and slow, usually with charcoal or wood fire. That means cooking your meat at a lower temperature for a longer period of time. The low heat and smoke penetrate the meat leaving the coveted smoke ring you see when slicing. This smoke ring will contain a smokey flavor that gives any meat that classic barbecue finish.
