Barbecue, barbeque, bar-b-q, and BBQ all refer to a cooking method, an outdoor party with foods cooked in this method, and often to any food cooked outdoors. In its purest form, barbecue uses indirect heat and a long, slow process breaking down tough cuts of meat into mouth-watering tender morsels. Different types of barbecue use different meats, spiced sauces and flavorings (added at various times during cooking), smokes, equipment and fuel, and total cooking time. Everyone’s got their favorite flavors! Any one of our barbecue rub seasonings will work wonders for your bbq rib or bbq chicken recipes.
