Is "grill" really a correct English word for the thing in which you barbeque food?

Yup! As far as I know there are no other words for it.

Actually there are. What Americans call a "grill" is known as a "barbecue" in the UK and Australia.

I always thought barbecue was more like the activity not the device itself, but you're right, "barbecue" is also a correct word for it. One can even call it a "barbecue grill", but I don't really think anyone is going to call it that.
