Did you know that the term “barbecue” might have come from the French barbe a queue? It means “from whiskers to tail” and refers to a time when an entire animal was cooked over an open fire.
Yeah, I didn’t either.
Things like the fact that people in the Northeast are the most frequent barbecuers in the U.S. Sounds hard to believe to me. It seems like such a Southern thing.
