Grilling is a cooking method where food is cooked using dry heat. The heat is normally applied above and below the food. It uses a considerable amount of heat and is the cooking method used to cook meat fast. Grilling and barbecue are similar in a sense that they both use dry heat in cooking. The main difference is that grilling uses direct heat at high temperatures while barbecue is slowly cooking the meat with low temperatures.
