    What is broiling?

    For us Englanders out there, tell us what broiling is and can you translate any other culinary terms from US to English?

    Broiling is a high heat cooking method in which the heat source is above the food. 

    Grilling would have the food on a metal lattice and the heat source under the food. 

    Bar-B-Que involves a sauce and slow cooking; but, that term can cause some arguments among certain groups.  I am from Texas, and am used to slow cooked beef brisket with a tomato based sauce.  North Carolina is used to slow cooked pork and a mustard based sauce.  That just scratches the surface.  There are some pretty good articles about the subject on Hubpages.

    FYI - A great deal of the american cooking terms are actually French or have their roots in French cooking.  This is especially true in the southern states like Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
