Virginia style? American style BBQ started in Virginia and spread from there. Hickory and oak were the woods of choice. Salt, pepper, lard/butter, vinegar and cayenne pepper were the seasonings of choice unless you were wealthy. Then, you would add some jelly, honey, fruit syrup, or sugar to the mix. And, they cooked all kinds of meat not just pork though pork was prevalent.
