Those of us addicted to the art of barbecue -- a method of cooking meat low and slow for hours to achieve succulent, smoky results -- sometimes speak in a secret language that makes no sense to the outside world. Here's a breakdown of some insider jargon that will put you in the know.
Moo + Oink = Moink. Take a meatball, wrap it in bacon, and sprinkle it
with your favorite BBQ rub. Smoke the moink balls until the bacon is
cooked (usually about two hours). This recipe was created by Larry Gaian

your favorite fillings, sprinkled with BBQ rub and smoked until the
sausage is cooked thoroughly.
Bark: Refers to the crunchy outer layer produced when meat caramelizes.
