Shortly after man discovered fire, he discovered that if you threw a chunk of meat on the coals, let it blacken, and then dug it out of the ashes…it tasted freakin' awesome! Since that evolutionary milestone, man has taken barbecue (or grilling, or smoking, or whatever you want to call it,) to the four corners of the world, and adapted it to the local ingredients he found there. If it walked, swam, slithered, or flew, early man found a way to cook it over fire…and God bless him for it!
