This inforgraphic displays the history of barbeque in the United States. The word “barabicu” was adopted from the Spanish and was called “barbacoa”. The natives actually came up with the idea of a barbeque in the 15th century, as they had mastered the act of slow-cooking meat over a wooden platform. The word was added into the English dictionary in 1697. In the 19th century, barbequing took off as the technology to barbeque was readily available for Americans to buy at stores. There are four main styles of BBQ: Memphis, north Carolina, Kansas city, and Texas. Most BBQ meats are burgers at 80%, steak at 80%, hot dogs at 79%, and chicken at 73%.
