BBQ began in the late 1800s during cattle drives out west. It was the men who had to feed the cowboys that started this habit as there was not enough good meat to keep the men fed. Brisket was very tough string piece of meat. Soon the camp cooks learned that cooking brisket for 5 to 7 hours at low temperature a super yummie could be had. Cooking pork butt, pork ribs, beef ribs, venison and goat in the same style were options as well.
