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.
---"Barbeuce" by Matthew Fisher, NEW YORK PRESS SUMMER GUIDE 2004 (Eats & Drinks), May 26-June 1, 2004, pg. 112, col. 1.
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.

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.
