Is costelinha the spanish word for "ribs"?

That looks like an interesting grill. Where I am from we smoke the ribs in a big brick pitt for hours. The meat then falls right off the bone....ummmm good!

costela = ribs in portuguese (in Brazil we donŽt speak spanish)

costelinha is something like "little ribs"

is pitt the name of the place where the barbecue is "cooked"?

IŽll tell you in advance when weŽll have spare ribs again, and then you can come

What you are cooking on in the photo is a grill or some just say a Bar-B-Q.

What I am referring to uses wood to create lots of heat and smoke, a bit different than a grill. They are big, made from brick and have a big top to keep the smoke from the fire in it.

I believe you :wink:

the grill is the place where we put the fire?

as far as I know, grill is just what "holds" the meat...

You're right stile, the 'grill' is the metal grate that holds the food. But, because we americans have gotten lazy, we have generalized the WHOLE concept and called the whole thing a 'Grill'. It even goes farther ...

"I want to grill some ribs."

"Im going to throw a burger on the grill"

In both the cases above the word grill is not referring to the metal 'grill' that holds the food. Even farther still the first example the word 'grill' is a verb, and grilling is an action. The second example has the word grill as a noun, but grill here is synonomous with the WHOLE cooking contraption.


if that weren't bad enough ... the word Barbeque (BBQ) has gone the same route. Traditionally BBQ was a type of cooking, characteristic of a sauce or flavors. BUT because you cook BBQ food on a "grill" BBQ now is also used as a verb and a displaced noun.

eg.
"I want to Barbeque today, maybe some steak."

"Im going to light up the Barbeque, food should be ready in 15 minutes"

Hopefully my examples were clear ... in all cases it makes little sense.

:wink:

Thanks, FunkyJunc!

That is why it is hard to communicate sometimes: words can change their meaning, and I learned the "formal" meaning, wich is not always the right one...
