Was at a Barbeque tonight and the guy that cooked it had already cooked the food then put it on the barby for 10 mins.

Shouldnt proper bbq'd food be cooked from raw?

Yes but you need a BBQ that's up to the job! If it isn't then your host was probably being sensible, not having everyone waiting for ages.
#2
Depends what you are cooking, i cook chicken first then bbq, but things like sausages and burgers i do from scratch as long as they are defrosted and cooked for long enough.

+1, Also better to know that the food is properly cooked

I always steam chicken thighs for ten minutes before i BBQ them
them cover in marinade and BBQ to get that smokey flavour

Its a bit tricky cooking chicken on a BBQ because most people want it right away lol
#5
saves time I spose-there must be hundreds/thousands of food poisoning cases every year from barbeques-personally,I would never eat chicken at a barbecue,would rather play russian roulette!
#6
It helps to get it all ready at once rather than keep people waiting
#7
I think its sensible if you have a lot of food to do this, makes sure its alright for everyone and cooked through.If you put it on the barbecue for ten minutes at least it gets a flavour of the charcoal.

Theres no hard and fast rule about BBQ and I usually cook from raw but I have no problem with precooking if there is a lot of people so everyone can eat together and not having to wait in line like you're in wormwood scrubs! I'd say the most important thing to do for a BBQ is marinade the meat before hand...Tastes so much better!

P.S. You can also add different wood 'smoke' chips in with the charcoal to get an authentic flavour to your bbq!

I wouldn't reccommend cooking from frozen on a BBQ as its harder to adjust the heat and it'll more than likely be black on the outside when its done or raw in the middle,,,

A 'proper' bbq should be cooked for 7 hours or more. The pulled pork I cooked a couple of weeks ago took 8

'grilling' can be done with par cooked stuff if the above isn't possible, although really you should grill things which cook quickly

I'm not sure what you're saying here Sancho - you cooked some pork for 8 hours on a BBQ???

What I think of as a 'proper' BBQ is how they have in Australian BBQ restaurants where you choose your meat etc and cook it yourself on the huge BBQ - red hot with side places to do your onions etc, then pick up your salads on the way to the table.

Or here in the UK backgarden - big gas barby - whack it on, sear and cook.

Are you thinking of a medieval banquet??;-)

I'd probably be inclined to say this is more of a slow smoking and not a BBQ as such, but I'm no expert and could be well off the mark! Sounds tasty though...!!

The Australian thing you speak of is actually grilling, Grilling is direct heat, thin bits of meat, kebabs etc which cook quickly.

BBQing is cooking large joints of meat, or whole birds etc. at a low temperature (indirect heat) for a very long time. 8 hours is quite quick tbh!!

But yes, i cooked a shoulder of pork (reasonably small one) for 8 hours

Don't get me started on what we call a BBQ here :-D

Not smoking as i didn't use any wood chips (hence smoke) just charcoal. That was only because i couldn't find any wood chips!!

2.

tr.v. bar·be·cued, bar·be·cu·ing, bar·be·cues
To roast, broil, or grill (meat or seafood) over live coals or an open fire, often basting with a seasoned sauce.

barbecue [ˈbɑːbɪˌkjuː]
n
1. a meal cooked out of doors over an open fire
2. an outdoor party or picnic at which barbecued food is served
3. a grill or fireplace used in barbecuing
4. the food so cooked
vb -cues, -cuing, -cued (tr)

whereas the english term for bbq is put on raw frozen sausage and sear the outside with a temperature hotter than the sun, within seconds it turns black outside, and then serve.

Blimey - there's a whole world of discussion about 'real BBQ' versus 'BBQ' out there.

Temperatures rising!!

I'm going with the UK back garden version!:-D

I'm off to see what happens in the footy - safer ground.
#22
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Sancho is wrong, In fact I love the idea of an 8h roast, but I'm also saying I ain't wrong either!!
#23
always part cook in oven 1st then finish off on bbq.
#24
BBQ is using indirect heat and (a lot of the time, but not always) smoke to cook meat over a long period of time.
Grilling is what we call BBQ in the UK and AUS
#25
Depends what I am cooking. I always part cook sausages but do this to remove the fat, that way when they go on the bbq they don't spit as much, thus ensuring flames don't start and burn the sauages. I always do burgers and steaks straight on the barby, but the burgers are better if frozen first and the steaks fresh. Again I precook chicken first. I also throw park cooked jacket potatoes on the barby without foil, as this make the skins taste amazing!

Always cook from raw on the BBQ!! Just be sure to cook on the embers and not the flame.
