The wood and the meat are the major players, and many "q hounds" believe that when cooked properly, good barbecue doesn't need sauce--just the wood and the meat.  Not everyone agrees.  In kansas City, one ofthe country's 'q meccas, sauce is a big deal.

   I'd discussed "BBQ," but not "Q."  The "Q" word sounds like a question, or a New Testament source manuscript, or a billiards term, or a theatre term, or something from Queens, or queers--anything but "barbecue."  It sounds overly hip, and I haven't seen it that much.
   "Q" is a very difficult term to search for.  You have to try something like "q-hound" and hope it's close.  I tried to search for it on alt.food.barbecue, and it goes back there to 1996.
   I don't know what the HISTORICAL DICTIONARY OF AMERICAN SLANG has for this letter.

Duellin' barbarbecues.

This is Q-ing like you've never seen it - cooked up by fat guys named Slim and tall guys called Shorty, armed with sharpened knives and secret spices. They're trying to prove their butts - pork butts, that is - are the zestiest in the land. Kate Zimmerman, wife of Calgary's barbecue pooh-bah, tells the inside story.
