Default BBQ Around the World (Graphic Pron!)

Im fascinated with the history of cooking and especially BBQ. As I understand it Barbecue as we know it comes from the word barbacoa. The Buccaneers so named cause they brought with them pigs that they released all over the southern US and Caribbean. These wild pigs still run around down there and I guess are a little remnant of early BBQ history as we know it.

The local natives buried food wrapped in leaves with hot wood coals or raised it up on sticks so it would get a lot of smoke and fire.

Then later Europeans began using salt and smoke to cure meats. Making it possible to store them for long periods of time without refrigeration.

Lately I have been doing a sort of back to basics type of BBQ. Getting into the history of things. Sort of less is more. I have been getting some great results.

The Argentinian way of grilling is really nice, simple yet delicious. Just meat and salt on top of an open fire. Slow roasting meats high over the coals.

Here are some pics that some of you may remember from my introduction post that is MIA.

So besides American style of BBQ, is anyone experimenting with other ethnic BBQ styles?

Lots of BBQ around the world. Viet Nam, Korea...The cured and smoked sausages and meats of Central and Eastern Europe. Is that considered BBQ?

This is a great site with lots of like minded cooks. Really glad I found my way here.

No real skill required though. Argentinian is easy as 123.

Here are some pics of Korean BBQ on a makeshift table top grill. Thinly sliced beef in a marinade of red pepper, brown sugar, garlic, salt and black pepper, sesame oil and seeds.

BTW, did I mention that I frickin love pron?

So, smokin Aussie, isnt there a distinctive Australian style of BBQ? Im sure it is more than just throwing shrimp on the barbie. BBQ fruit bat?

Is it like Argentinian? Greek BBQ is the same as Argentinian except with maybe some marinades and what not.

I like your style!! How did the tongure turn out being grilled? Also, are those intestines? If so, how did those turn out grilled? I've only have those fried.

Very nice. The cheek meat on the goat/sheep head is the best part. My dad just made some goat heads a couple weeks ago. Did you eat the brains? Thanks for sharing.

Cool! I always wanted to try the Gaucho style but never have... I have been told that there is a very distinct difference in both the charcoal used and the salt that some say contribute to the unique flavors... The closest I have come to it is a Brazilian style Churrascaria that was located on Delk Road in Marietta, Ga called the Copacabana Grill...Alas, it is no more and I hear that now the more expensive places like Fogo de Chăo are all that really remain for authentic Gaucho style ... great thread!

what is that animal in the last pic?

i thought Adam and Eve invented BBQ?

i would like a list of what you cooked. I will admit, some of it looks a we bit scary to me. thats because i am sheltered and have lived in the states and never had REAL food. i thought Mc donalds was real food
