“The English word barbecue and its cognates in other languages come from the Spanish word barbacoa, which has its origin in an indigenous American word. Etymologists believe this to be derived from barabicu found in the language of the Arawak people of the Caribbean and the Timucua people of Florida; it has entered some European languages in the form of barbacoa. The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) traces the word to Hispaniola and translates it as a “framework of sticks set upon posts.”


Grilling… oh, I can hear the sizzle and taste the charbroiled meat already! A staple of summer is to grill, or sometimes, colloquially called barbecue. I probably should not say “charbroiled” because there are several different ways of grilling, and this this is only one of them. They include both indoor and outdoor options, which can utilized various fuel types, such as gas, charcoal, and electricity.

Okay, I am just hungry now…
