Barbeque is Incorrect
Barbecue is Correct
Think of "cue" as a "cue" that you're spelling it wrong; it should be "c-u-e."
Remember that "barbecue" has the same number of syllables as "apple pie" to help you spell it out fully.
The word ends in "-cue," which sounds like "kyoo," not "kway."
"Car" and "Bar" both have "ar," and so does "barbecue."
Recall the abbreviation "BBQ," where "B" could remind you of "barbecue," not "barbeque."
