    Reminds me of an old cartoon, Tiger, I believe. The kids are ordered to watch the burgers on the barbecue.
    ‘Yeah, we watched them turn brown, then black, then break up into little pieces and fall through the grill.’

    @MicroGuy

    Barbecue is one of those words that over the years has gathered different (though related) meanings: a grill, a grill with a cover, a method of cooking, food cooked following that method, a sauce usually employed in the method, an event in which food is cooked outdoors following that method.
     
    But here you have what the dictionaries say about barbecue. As you can see, what Roger is doing does fit some of the definitions.
     
    Note also that etymologically Roger’s meaning for the word barbecue is closer to the original meaning than your’s (from the Oxford New American Dicitionary): ORIGIN mid 17th cent.: from Spanish barbacoa, perhaps from Arawak barbacoa ‘wooden frame on posts.’ The original sense was ‘wooden framework for sleeping on, or for storing meat or fish to be dried.’

    Sometimes the grass really IS greener on the other side. In this case, the food really IS better.

    THis shows just how thick Roger really is, especially when it comes to his grilling, which is just a step above Andy’s cooking, but not by much.

    Carribian pirates used to smoke thier meat on racks to preserve it fpr long sea voyages. In French, these racks were called boucheons and one who smokes his meat on these racks was called a bouhcheonire or as the English pronounced it: Buccaneer.
