Literal translation: Barbecue, outdoor grill
We bet you thought that מַנְגָּל (mangal) was the only word for a barbeque.
If there is more than one way to say BBQ in Hebrew then there is more than one way to start a fire in a grill. If you ask two Israelis how to start a grill, then prepare yourself for a heated argument on whose way is better.
So Happy Israeli Independence Day and happy grilling!
