Make Your Editor Cry: Barbecue
At a “barbecue,” one who “barbecues” is a “barbecuer” and he has probably often “barbecued” in “barbecue pit” using “barbecue sauce.”
Casual restaurants like to advertise “BBQ” or “BAR-B-Q.” You also see this spelled “barbeque” and variations like “barbaque,” or “barbacue.”
The standard spelling is “barbecue,” and Webster makes an allowance for (less commonly) “barbeque.”
