    I think I would call barbecue the event

    Like, a barbecue is a party wherein you cook burgers and hot dogs on the grill

    I would say we're having a cookout if it's grilling. If we're smoking a whole hog then it's a pig pickin'. If we're having barbeque then I would just say exactly that. Not having a barbeque.

    Alright pig pickin is a new one I'll admit

    That's the classic way to do NC BBQ. Pull your meat right off and douse it in your vinegar or vinegar and tomato sauce depending on if you're out east or out west.

    I mean it makes sense, sure

    'Course I can't think of much other outdoor events aside from a barbecue, so I don't see why you wouldn't just call it what it is

    To me, a cookout implies a gathering where there's a big grill and everyone's wandering around outside playing games or whatever. Barbecue can be an element of that, but that's different, in my mind.

    For some reason this made me think about that part in Face/Off where Nic Cage is like, "I want to take his face... Off."

    And I says to myself, I says, "It'd be pretty funny to take a screencap of that scene and toss it in MSPaint and have some fun with it." But the results disappointed. Not only does it barely scan as a joke, it also looks kinda filthy if you only give it a quick glance

    Ah, well. Live and learn.

    Cookout is used here, but also barbecue is used interchangeably with grilling
