Barbeque (BBQ) or something like it has been produced all over
Austin, Texas for hundreds
of years. Most people in Texas consider the BBQ form was first created
in meat markets and grocery stores owned by immigrants. 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!
