The Great American BBQ Past Time

With the holiday upon us, I started to wonder how the Great American BBQ came into our culture, so with some hard research and digging into the depth’s of the internet- okay just a quick Google search did the trick, let’s be honest- I found some intriguing findings.

Let’s start with a little history lesson, shall we? In the beginning, barbeque was said to originate from the Spanish and Haitian word barbacoa which mean “a framework of sticks upon posts”  Meat and fish were the primary meats placed on these posts to slow cook.  Of course, we also know the Native Indians roasted whole pigs and this was considered their form of bbq.  In the U.S. the term barbeque, or barbecue, or the barby, or even BBQ (however you wish to spell it) means anything from slow cooking with heat and smoke…to grilling over an open fire.

While the term barbeque describes a cooking process or apparatus, it also refers to a social gathering where food is served outdoors.

While getting in the spirit of Memorial Day in the coming weeks, we at Chef’s Market have created a BBQ offering that will have your family and friends calling from the rooftops! We have created some easy to order packages to help take out all of the guess work so you can concentrate on the important things like friends and family, or beating Uncle Jo in cornhole!
