J-Top’s BBQ Shop Glossary terms, glossary, also known as a vocabulary or clavis, is an alphabetical list of terms in a particular domain of knowledge with the definitions for those terms.  

At J-Tops BBQ we have a fire and passion for BBQ and incredible BBQ catering experiences in Clayton, Raleigh, and Smithfield  Area—but we also want you to enjoy and learn about BBQ, too! Here are some common BBQ terms, straight from the pit masters themselves. Prepare to learn the saucy lingo that comes with saucy BBQ.

Lingo is the specialized language that people of like mind use to communicate. Computer geeks have their jargon, poker players have their jargon, and pit masters have theirs. Jargon also serves another important, but aggravating function: Separating “us” from “them.” That’s right, people often talk jargon so they can leave you out of the conversation in order to feel superior. Let’s fix that problem. Here are some of the terms used by barbecue insiders. Read them, use them, and become an insider.

This is our alphabetic guide to basic barbecue so that whether it be from our site or another barbecue themed website you can quickly get to grips with what’s being said.
