TYRONE GA!
I doubt Indians was cooking anything like black folks did. Most of the BBQ hotspots are mostly black areas. Memphis, Kansas City, St. Louis etc etc.

Of course not like THAT, but they were the inventors of the BBQ. We of course took it to another level.

(only reason I know this is we went on a fam vacay to Mt Rushmore a few years ago and went to a lot of Native American museums and shyt. Kinda Dope).

I don't know where this stuff about Native people and barbque came from, but they were not doing what we call barbque. Open flame cooking has been done through out history. However, what Americans call barbque was created on plantations and historians are very clear on that point. Even the word "pit master" comes from the plantation and it means something:

"...While the culinary art of BBQ has certainly been practiced internationally since humans invented fire, in the United States, the classic BBQ that Americans know and love was primarily cooked by slaves in the South in pits for large social gatherings held by slaveowners on plantations beginning in the colonial era of American history.

The term “Pit Master” refers to an elderly slave who was an expert cook and led the effort to prepare the BBQ for the slaveholders. Younger slaves worked under the “Pit Master” to learn how to prepare a whole hog for a BBQ.

Pigs were then slow roasted in a pit in the ground, with the fire constantly tended for a the long, slow cooking process. Then the pig was removed from the pit, and the pork and ham were served at BBQs in the South, which were a common social gathering before and even after the Civil War. Many “Pit Masters” continued to pass on their BBQ traditions to younger generations, and even into the present day.


Slaves were not allowed to have the best cuts of meat, whether it was beef or pork, and were often given the ribs or other undesirable cuts of meats that slaveholders did not want.

Slaves became adept at taking marginal cuts of meat such as ribs and preparing them in such a way that they were quite tender and delicious, which as time went by became staples of modern BBQ preparation, and ironically for many, the preferred cuts of meat for BBQ.

Slaves were allowed to keep chickens around their slave quarters, and it was a common practice by slaveholders to give slaves Sunday off of work to attend church. Following worship services, it became common for slave families to prepare chicken for Sunday dinner following church services.

Slaves who were cooks for slaveholding families developed pan frying and grilling and smoking cooking techniques for preparing chicken, which was a weekly respite from their labors as slaves during the week.

These traditional cooking techniques were passed down from family member to family member until they have become the fried, grilled, and smoked chicken that we enjoy today in American cuisine..."

Just try to have a conversation with those fools about how Country Music and Blue Grass music are offshoots of Blues. You might have to strangle one of those crackas to get out of there.

Anyway you can see how the Whitewashing of history happens. People start making claims about this group or that group creating this or that, but nobody ever stops to ask themselves that if Black people did not create this form of cooking or other forms of cooking then how did Black people all over the South on different plantations in different States know how to barbque? Those Black people never met each other and they sure as Hell did not meet any Native people; yet somehow all of those Black people had a knowledge of that form of cooking.

Yes black people invented America BBQ. Black people damn invented everything especially in America. This is why other groups and races are so jealous of black people. This is also why they love black people. They just hate that they can't beat black people in nothing.

Look at the c00ns and cacs on the first page talking bout "No the native Americans did". Without providing no proof or nothing just trying to discredit black people for the hell of it because they're jealous of black people. People really don't want black people to know how great they are.

Black Excellence once again
