the learning to speak Canajun thread
Isn't the apparatus used to bbq a grill?
this is a bbq in Canada
This is a bbq in the U.S. also.....
We call it a grill, or a bbq grill.
It's a bbq grill, all right?
it is a bbq - not a bbq grill or a grill
it is a bbq
a grill here is a kind of restaurant - traditionally a place where there will be a short-order cook behind a counter - grilled cheese will always be on the menu at a grill
if Joe tells his new gal he's going to a grill, she'll think he's going to a restaurant
if he tells her he's going to a bbq, she'll know he's going to a friend's place where food will be bbq'd on a bbq
Oh, I'm sorry, is the one of the rare as hen's teeth threads where no one says absolutely nothing unless it specifically pertains to the thread?
You didn't start the thread even, and didn't chime in until the 3rd page, so relax.
Why aren't you making these same type points to all the other people who have dared to post about England, Australia and other places, but making no mention of Canada?
I think you're taking this whole thing that this is supposed to be only about how Canadians speak a little too far.
BTW, I've randomly asked about 4 or 5 people today if they consider a hot dog that was cooked outside with little burn marks on it bbq, and the responses were all on the level of.....What? Are you kidding.
Again, I'm sure Canada has some excellent bbq, whether in your terminoloy, mine or someone who's out there watering his lawn with a hose pipe.
Relax, it's just a little joke thread.
