Bulgur (burgbul) is a wheat product, like cracked wheat, but is processed differently. Cracked wheat is made by crushing raw whole berries, whereas bulgur is made from whole-wheat berries first steamed, then dried, and crushed. It is available in three grades: grind #1 is suitable for making kubba and tabboula, and the coarser grinds #2 and #3 are suitable for making pilafs and soups.
