What are your thoughts on Veg Barbecue ?
Those are grilled vegetables, and there’s nothing not to like about that. I don’t think it fits the (stricter) definition of barbecue, which usually refers to slow-cooked meat with some kind of flavoring agent, wet or dry. I’m not sure a vegetable could withstand the barbecuing process, at least not in a form anyone would want to eat.
I grilled beautiful spring onions last night . With olive oil and a tiny bit of salt .
Grilled mushrooms are my favorite grilled vegetable. I bet spring onions work pretty damn well, also.
I’m with small_h. Grilling is a wonderful thing, and I love grilled veggies (and that recipe looks good).
But grill and barbecue are not the same thing, and those veggies are absolutely not barbecued.
We’ve been grilling veg for some 30 years.
Grilled green onion, halved red onions, green beans, padrone peppers, red peppers, zucchini slices, eggplant are all favorites and easy ways to encourage non-veg people to enjoy them.
One more fan of grilled veg objecting to call it barbecue. @bbqboy?
Barbeque is an often misused, misunderstood word. Seldom used correctly.
I’m more distressed by the term veg.
This is an affront as serious as sammich!
Could be worse. Could be “veggie.”
Grilled onions are one of my favorites. There’s a variety called the Red Long Onion of Tropea that we get from our summer CSA share. I look forward to those every year.
ETA: The vegetables that @pilgrim mentions upthread are on my greatest hits list too.
My deepest and most abject apologies. It will happen again. Yep. It will.
See from 1:05 here:
Note the proper term “vegetable” is used. Sorry my friend - too much exposure to bad elements.
Would a roasted garlic bulb count? Can usually roast them for up to an hour.
Same with caramelized onions. Would that count?
Both are botanically considered vegetables.
Can you call roast beef or roast chicken a barbecued meat? If so, I guess garlic and onion would qualify. (I don’t think they do.)
No. And no. Not barbecued.
Oh dear. You are now on the “do not enter” list for a number of states that embrace barbecue. I’m not even an aficionado and I know that.
For asking a question?
It was an attempt at a joke. For barbecue, as opposed to grilling many Americans call barbecue, vegetables don’t work.
So…exactly what I said in my first post.
Not my thing, but pulled pork-style jackfruit seems to be a vehicle for bbq sauce, and popular with vegans in Canada.
