Barbecue or barbeque is a cooking method, a style of food, and a name for a meal or gathering at which this style of food is cooked and served. Barbecuing is usually done outdoors by smoking the meat over wood or charcoal. Barbecue is practiced in many areas of the world.

Barbecuing techniques include smoking, roasting,  baking, and grilling. The technique for which it is named involves cooking using smoke at low temperatures and long cooking times (several hours). Baking uses an oven to convection cook with moderate temperatures for an average cooking time of about an hour. Grilling is done over direct, dry heat, usually over a hot fire for a few minutes.

On Friday, June 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., come learn and taste barbecuing techniques.
