What is the difference between barbequing and grilling?

freia | Apr 5, 2012 02:19 PM

It's that season again, and I was watching a show on BBQing this afternoon. One of the hosts made an interesting comment -- "we are barbequing, NOT grilling..." and proceeded to put potatoes on the grill, along with chicken breasts and fruit skewers. He didn't explain the difference.
SO...is there a difference?
Is food cooked on a bbq "bbqed"? Or is it grilled? Is it a technique thing? Or is it called what it is called based on what you call your equipment (some say Grill, some say BBQ)?
:)
