USB flash installation media

Using Linux:
Run the following command, replacing /dev/sdx with your drive, e.g. /dev/sdb. (do not append a partition number, so do not use something like /dev/sdb1):

dd bs=4M if=/path/to/bbqlinux.iso of=/dev/sdx && sync

Using Windows:
USBWriter: https://sourceforge.net/p/usbwriter/wiki/Documentation/
Win32DiskImager: https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

Don't forget to label the USB-Drive "BBQLINUX", otherwise BBQLinux will not boot.
