Invent and Present’s journey continues with BBQ invention. We’ll light up the grill and explore the history of barbecue in the US.

History of Barbecue

The development of BBQ culture started long before European settlers arrived. Indigenous peoples had been practicing various forms of open-fire cooking. Native American tribes were already using methods such as pit cooking and smoking to prepare meat, fish, and vegetables.

As European settlers established colonies along the eastern seaboard, they brought their own culinary traditions. The early colonists of America adapted and incorporated Native American cooking techniques into their own practices. Today, BBQ is enjoyed by people worldwide and has become an iconic part of American culture.
