If I Put BBQ Sauce On A Carrot Is It Now A BBQ Carrot?

KTinNYC | Jun 5, 2009 10:58 AM

I see so many post on the Home Cooking board where people insist on calling just about anything they make barbecue as long as they put barbecue sauce on it. Baked chicken with barbecue sauce on it is now barbecue chicken. Pork shoulder cooked in a slow cooker with barbecue sauce? Barbecue.

I know many people will call grilling barbecue but has the word devolved so much that as long as I slap barbecue sauce on it I can call it barbecue? What's wrong with calling a baked chicken a baked chicken or slow cooked pulled pork slow cooked pulled pork with barbecue sauce?
