Did barbecue beget civilization? How did humankind learn to grill? Join award-winning, bestselling author and PBS TV host, Steven Raichlen, for a provocative lecture on the history of barbecue, from the discovery of live fire cooking by Homo erectus nearly two million years ago to the invention of the charcoal briquette, charcoal and gas grills, and the modern barbecue restaurant.
Raichlen will autograph copies of his books Planet Barbecue, Barbecue Bible, and the new Best Ribs Ever, at a signing event immediately following the lecture.
