When you hear at the word barbecue it typically means either a cooking method or the cooking equipment used. The difference between barbecuing and grilling has to do mostly with the cooking times it takes and the types of heat used to cook the food. Grilling is most often done quickly over moderate to high direct heat with little smoke, while barbecuing is done more slowly over low indirect heat and the food is flavored by the smoking process.
