Convection - Definition: A method of heat transfer where food is heated by a moving heat source such as hot air inside an oven that is circulated by a fan.

Denaturation - A change in the structure of protein by heat, acid, alkali, or other agents which results in loss of solubility and coagulation.

Definition: Collagen is the protein that makes up connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments. If collagen( meat, etc) is heated for a long period of time at relatively low temperatures (say around 225 degrees F.) it will breakdown into soft gelatin. It is this that is the secret of great barbecue.
