Poll of the Week - 3.22.2010

National Barbecue Month may not be until May, but now that spring is officially here, it’s time to dust off those grills and rekindle your love affair with barbecue! Little Scarlet has some exciting barbecue-related news to share (look for it later today), but here’s a new “Poll of the Week” to get you excited.

Many people confuse barbecue with grilling, thinking that as soon as you throw some steak, chicken, or veggies on a grill, it’s automatically “barbecue”. Real barbecue, however, is cooked “low and slow” - using indirect or low-level heat and cooking for several hours. This process locks in the meat’s juices and yields extraordinarily tender meat. A lot of barbecue is also smoked, and while you can get smoke flavor by adding liquid smoke to any barbecue sauce, that taste that can only come from real wood smoke is truly something special.

For all the barbecue lovers out there, tell Little Scarlet - what’s your favorite kind of barbecue?

  2. Beef is not real barbeque.
    You really should ask what style of bbq people like. It really tells you what kind of a person someone is.

  7. To the person who said that the kind of barbecue tells alot about a person... clearly you're ignorant. Yeah, some people prefer the vinegary Carolina pork, chicken, the Memphis pit style, but beef is king in Texas. We cook it all, and what we can't eat, we turn into chili. Nothing beats a sliced beef sandwich or some beef ribs.
