IMO barbeque is as much about the sauce and rub as it is about the cooking method. Low and Slow has to be the cooking method...but a sauce and rub are also essential. Cooking skewered meat (or even skewered/rubbed meat) is just grilling.

Yes, obviously, they are not smoking it, which, I would agree, is not the definition of barbecue. However, I would disagree about the sauce and rubs being as important. "Barbecue" is a cooking technique. Great barbecue is more than capable of standing alone. Sauce and rubs are just there to contribute a bit of enhancement. Great pitmasters focus on the smoking process, not the enhancements.

They claim the meat is "smoked" by the open fire. The goal is a flaming fire, so the meat is never "grilled" over smoldering coals. Open flame is key for this stuff.

I'd call that "roasting."

I've been up and down that road a lot, never even heard of any barbecue. Locals would spot my LACounty tag and about run you out of town. The property that backs up east of the Hearst Castle grew some of the biggest Angus cattle I have ever seen.

If you cn get access to private land there is a ton of deer just east of Santa maria and Paso Robles. Piggies, too.
