Barbecuing and grilling is almost always associated with outdoor cooking, usually during a time of year when the weather is sunny, warm and clear and the days are longer. Many BBQ recipes can be made indoors, however, allowing you to enjoy that barbecueflavor any time of year! When it comes to outdoor cooking, some people prefer gas grills because they make grilling so quick and easy, while others might prefer cooking the old fashioned way on a charcoal grill using charcoal briquettes to get that true smoky flavor. Hibachis are great for grilling in small outdoor spaces or for outings at the beach, park or mountains, because they're so easy to transport. Smokers are wonderful for slow cooking, and will produce amazingly tender and juicy meat with delicious smoky flavor. When preparing BBQ and grilling recipes indoors, indoor grills can work wonders. Many recipes can also be cooked using your oven, broiler and stove. Whether you use the indoor or outdoor cooking method, barbecued and grilled food will always be like a good friend you will want to visit again and again.
