Grillz It Iz

 We blogged, you decider-ed.

In the first of what will surely be way too many polls here at endless simmer, we asked you whether to call our backyard cooking category “BBQ” or Grillin.” Well, the South has really risen on this one. You may not have won The War of Northern Aggression, but you took our inaugural ES poll by a nearly three-to-one margin.  Grillin’ by a landslide.

If you look to the right, you’ll notice the win is already reflected in the category formerly known as BBQ. From this point onward, you will never again see the consecutive use of the letters B, B, and Q on this blog, unless we are referring specifically to a certain suculent Southern dish.

    Wait. I’m from the north (NY, New Jersey, went to school in MA) and never heard anyone use bbq for cooking on a grill. Who uses bbq for cooking on a grill? Is it a regional thing?

    Well maybe not, according to our overwhelming results. I grew up in NY going to BBQ’s, not grilling sessions, but this whole grillin’ thing seems more widespread than I even imagined.

    Growing up in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, we always referred to a backyard cookout as a BBQ, but now that I know what real BBQ is versus throwing some steaks and veggies on the grill, I have to go with – Grillin’.
