BBQ is NOT grilling! There is a very distinct difference between the grilling and BBQ. Southern style BBQ is a technique in which meat is cooked at low temperatures (about 225 F) for a long time over indirect heat. The heat source is charcoal and wood. No gas/propane is allowed. The Barn Burner BBQ competition consists of four main categories: Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Chicken, and Ribs. Brisket is cooked for up to 16 hours. Ribs take approximately 6 hours and chicken take as long as 4 hours.
