The word barbecue is also used to refer to a social gathering where food
is served, usually outdoors in the late afternoon or evening. In the
southern United States, outdoor gatherings are not typically called
"barbecues" unless barbecue itself will actually be on the menu, instead
generally favoring the word "cookouts".[*citation needed

for cooking at a barbecue is commonly referred to as a "barbecue",
"barbecue grill", or "grill". (Wikipedia)
