These pioneers made their way into settlements during the 1800’s all over Texas including the Austin area. Fresh meat that they couldn’t sell would be smoked and sold as BBQ or barbecue. Markets evolved into BBQ joints as demand grew for this delicious meat. It generally sliced right in front of the customer and served on paper from the butcher – butcher paper. In the beginning, sauce wasn’t served with the meat like it is today. Can you image that? No BBQ sauce!
