History of Barbecue
History of Barbecue - One theory anyway....
Barbecue is the oldest method of cooking meat known to man and stretches far into the misty reaches of prehistory. Scientist today use the remains of old cooking sites to determine the age, movement, and lifestyle of ancient Man.
Man climbed down from the trees and wandered through the savannas searching for something to eat. He came across an animal that had been caught in a brush fire. As he tore a piece off of the smoking carcass, smelled it, and put it in his mouth, he smiled as a bland diet of roots and leaves was transformed into a whole new way of life.
The Gather became the Hunter and the die was cast in a process that evolved into the art of barbecue. As we sit on our decks watching the smoke rise from our cooking pits of choice we commune with our long gone ancestors across the far reaches of time.
