The Annual Sizzlin’ Summer Barbeque is coming soon, Saturday August 1st.

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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed*] The device used for cooking at a barbecue is commonly referred to as a "barbecue", "barbecue grill", or "grill". (Wikipedia)

To find out more REad about it here ---> *http://www.weber.com/about/weber-story-1950 http://www.weber.com/about/weber-story-1950* The backyard ritual of grilling went well baack into the 1940's, then grilling happened most at campsites and picnics. After the WWI and WWII, and people started moving to the "burbs", backyard grilling and BBQing really took its hold into the 1950s and onto the 60s.
