Tall tales about the BBQ are often told at parties these days. Various terms such as ‘direct vs. indirect’ ‘cutting on the bias’ and ‘core temperature’ are discussed. Of course, it is nice to be able to talk along about these subjects, and you might even teach your tipsy uncle a thing or two. Therefore the BBQ&A was created.
