[Tagging] Use bbq=yes/no or barbecue_grill=yes/no with campsites?

There are two similar property tags that describe the presence of a
barbecue (BBQ) grill at another feature such as a campsite or picnic
site.

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:barbecue_grill

If you check taghistory.raifer.tech it's clear that
barbecue_grill=yes/no is older and still slightly more common, but
bbq=yes/no is becoming more common in the past 2 years.

The similar feature tag is amenity=bbq

Is there a reason to pick one of these two tags over the other? I'd
like to know what to suggest for use with tourism=camp_pitch
