Right, it only became bar be cue when the Spaniards showed up with those tasty little piggies! The reason Danny doesn't mention pork is because it was accepted as fact and didn't need to be said. Later when the beef production started up, people still hadn't misapplied the term. That happened after WWII when, through the advent of immediate mass media, modern marketing really got started, and kraft foods "invented" that sweet syrupy sticky glop they call "bbq sauce".
#edit# I wouldn't use an online dictionary or wikipedia as a source. if you notice, pork is conspicuously absent from the dictionary dot com definition. I guess I was wrong the only type of meat that isn't BBQ is pork. I see the light.
