Man began his culinary journey by first cooking the meat over fire, since then using the fire to cook has not only made the food tastier but has given a wider range of food types and styles. We are thankful to our prehistoric ancestors for the discovery of fire, which has made food so great and noble! Barbecue and grilling are types of cooking method which probably originated the time fire was discovered. Grilling means a lot of heat is applied to the meat or the food to cook it, where as in a barbecue the meats and foods are cooked slowly over low heat, where all smoke gives it the flavour.
A walk by a restaurant is engulfed in subtle smokey aromas that come from their awesome grills and barbecue sections. The delicious marinated meat cooks in the grill giving it a super tender succulent flavour with all the taste packed into its juicy meaty layers.
