we love barbeques.Nowadays, barbecue refers to the process of slow-cooking meat that needs smoke, low temperature and longer periods of time. The most commonly used meats for barbecue are pork shoulder, ribs, brisket, whole hogs, mutton roasts and other pork and beef roasts. The word barbecue is used to refer not only to the cooking process, but also to the whole event when this type of food is being served. Barbecue Origins No one knows for sure where was barbecue invented and who invented it. There is a chance that the term comes from the Taino Indian word barbacoa, which means meat-smoking apparatus. Another possibility is for the word comes from the French expression barbe a queue, meaning whiskers to tail. However, in America, barbecue originated in the late years of the 19th century during Western cattle drives. The cowboys used to consume tough and stringy pieces of meat, often brisket which required cooking for seven hours before it could be eaten.
