Smoked Sausage and Cheddar Potato Packets

Did you know grilling and barbecuing is not the same thing?

Truth is that grilling and barbecuing are two very different cooking methods. Grilling is the most common form of cooking; it’s simply, the method of cooking a food directly over an open flame or high heat source. Barbecue is a low and slow method of cooking over indirect heat. Because of the long, slow cooking process, barbecued meat soaks up the smoky flavors and spice rubs, rendering the finished product moist and tender. Barbecue is more suited to bigger, tougher cuts of meat that do well with slow, even cooking, brisket, ribs, and tender pulled pork. Grilling is reserved for foods that can cook more quickly, hamburgers, hot dogs, steaks, chicken, seafood and vegetables.
