IC. Yeah, I'm Viet. But I'm also a bit of a cook, so I try to be precise in my terminology. BBQ isn't BBQ without some smoking. So, if it's on the grill without the smoke, it's grilling; if it's been smoked (with a rub, usually) before grilling, then it's BBQ. Grilling is universal, BBQ is sort of unique to America.
