  1. Your first line states that Barbecue is a distinctly American cuisine. I beg to differ. BBQ is found in many cultures, as illustrated by your own list including Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ. It’s disappointing that is the only non-American BBQ on the list. What about Korean BBQ? Chinese char siu? Asado, barbacoa, satay or yakitori?

  2. I was actually surprised that they included Japanese Grill , because the universal definition of Barbecue is: meat cooked on a grill or open fire. The abbreviation BBQ, and the culture of Barbecue, dry & wet rub, smoke science,and sauces is purely American. I’ve had Korean, Japanese, Szechuan,and countless other cultures and although they call it barbecue,it’s not the even close to the culture of American BBQ and they’re all really good in their own way.
