BBQ originated as a way of cooking by Native Americans. It was possible to soften the challenging parts of the meat by standing at a low temperature rather than directly cooking it at a high temperature for a short time. Barbecue has a different taste and aroma depending on the wood burned. Barbecue is made of oak, bamboo, oak, and thorn wood.
