    Meathead's The Story Of Barbecue -- a worthwhile read/re-read

    http://amazingribs.com/BBQ_articles/...e_history.html

    I am a modern day paleo guy (we all are) and I really liked this article.
    This should be required reading for us all.

    Some people will like this part... and it is probably correct!

    Evolution favored traits that enhanced the ability of these early homonids to hunt and eat cooked meat: Smaller hips and flatter feet for running speed, better hand articulation, communication skills, and smaller jaws. Eventually they learned to domesticate dogs to help with the hunt, and then they learned to herd and husband the animals that tasted best. The family circle and tribal structure evolved so that men became hunters and women became cooks. Ergo, the first pitmasters were probably women.

      And probably the first in North America to practice barbacoa was most likely a woman from modern day Mexico. http://www.aquiestexcoco.com/about-a...y-of-barbacoa/
