Barbeque is a form of cooking that is often associated with cookouts and, of course, the 4th of July. Although barbeque is frequently associated with America and is widely considered by many to be “All American Cuisine,” the origins of barbeque are actually more complex. This cooking style is actually prevalent in several different nations and, depending on what kind of BBQ it is, different spices are used that will make it taste entirely unique.
