Default The Cultural Heritage of Barbecue

The article below about beer got me thinking about the cultural heritage of barbecue:

http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2...rity-law?lite=

Barbecue is uniquely American, gaining recognition internationally, and is a tradition passed down from the formative years of America.

UNESCO defines intangible cultural heritage as "traditions or living expressions inherited from our ancestors and passed on to our descendants, such as oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe or the knowledge and skills to produce traditional crafts."

Shouldn't barbecue be part of this list?

I could argue the term barbeque and quibble. But, did you notice that there is not one item on that list from either the United States or Canada? Not even the Native American traditions that are certainly worthy (of which Barbeque might be considered one).

True but sad that they have ignored Traditional American Crafts like Landarc stated. Making Maple Syrup is another traditional craft from early America.

I didn't see Great Britain, Australia or New Zealand either.
