So I just realized that I’ve spent the past twenty some years thinking BBQ chicken is chicken with BBQ sauce on it. Not that there is anything wrong with that, in fact it is one of my favorite meals.
After watching an episode of The Chew I realized that BBQ is actually a way of cooking meat over a low heat with wood or charcoal. Since I haven’t had a charcoal grill since we lived in Cuba I thought I was going to have to settle for food covered in BBQ sauce forever. (Not that it’s a bad thing!)
