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".
