Barbecue won’t have been invented in the American South, but Southerners have worked hard to perfect it. In a relentless pursuit of the tenderest pork, chicken, and beef, generations of hardworking Southerners have tended coals, adjusted smokers, and stewarded the meat to its perfect state. These humble folks started with the most straightforward ingredients on the planet―meat and fire―and added rubs, sauces, and smoke to the mix as time went on, elevating it to an art.
