Brief Background of the Study

Barbecue is a food which is usually prepared and served at restaurants called barbecue houses or grill houses. Barbecue is commonly referred to as grill in which meat, poultry or fish (either whole or in pieces) or other food is slowly cooked in a pit or on a spit, using hot charcoals or hardwood as a heat source.
