Three out of four of US households own a barbecue grill. Between grills, charcoal, smokers, sauce, and spices, it's a multi-billion dollar industry. The word probably derives from barbe a queue, French for "from snout to tail". But the Spanish are thought to have brought it to North America in the form of hogs that they cooked in pits of oak and hickory coals, a method learned from Native Americans in the West Indies. The word first appeared in Virginia in the 1700s--where multiple meanings of the word were born--the method of cooking, the food, and gathering. It became a tradition in the late 1800s during cattle drives. Henry Ford invented the charcoal briquette from leftover wood scraps and sawdust from his car factory. E.G. Kingsford bought the invention and put it into commercial production. Whether a fan of North Carolina pulled pork, spicy Texas barbequed beef, or Charlie Bryant's Kansas City ribs, there's no denying that barbeque is truly cook American.
