    Grill and barbecue are interchangeable terms in the United States. The difference refers to the method of cooking, not the device.

    Then they are confusing the methods. You don't BBQ steaks, hotdogs and hamburgers. You grill them, lol

    Semantics. I don't get up in the arse when people confuse fry with saute, or boil with blanch.

    Like Didactic, I won't call anybody out on semantics. For the record, I have a gas grill, a charcoal grill, and a charcoal/wood smoker. It's all barbeque to me. Meat charred over fire. True enough, wings over charcoal have a much more complex and delicious flavor compared with when they are cooked on propane, but they are still delicious, and you don't always have the time to prep coals.

    I smoked a turkey for Thanksgiving and it came out great. Cooking time was about the same as the one we roasted, but add another hour or so to get the fire prepped, and I was managing the smoker for the better part of 6 hours. But Holy Mother of God, that was some good turkey. The smoked turkey was the hands down winner, and they were both really good turkeys.

    I mean I've been doing it for over 15 years now, but I guess eventually I'll burn myself, sure. Just probably not while doing a BBQ.
    Working as a chef for a few years then doing my own cooking or cooking for others for 20 years or so I have cut myself bad enough to make a hospital trip once and a few small burns here in there. Most of the time the burns are my forearms hitting something like the oven/grill rack above things I'm grabbing or flipping. Either way these glove would do nothing to help with that and in some case the odd end would block your view.

    Grilling is high heat and normally quick cooking, steaks, burgers, fish, hot dogs whatever. BBQing is low and slow nothing over 250 degrees and normally between 200 to 225, with some sort of smoke or water soaked wood chips. Of course the grill you are cooking on is often called a BBQ and that is where most mix things up.
