This just in from the 2011 AP Stylebook:
barbecue: The verb refers to the cooking of foods (usually meat) over flame or hot coals. As a noun, can be both the meat cooked in this manner or the fire pit (grill). Not barbeque or Bar-BQ.
I’ve been wondering for years what was the proper meaning (it’s broader than I thought) and spelling.
