Pittsburgh BBQ
by: John Zagurasky

If you are a bbq lover, Pittsburg is the right place for you to pamper your taste buds.

The traditional BBQ means meat cooked "low" and "slow" (that's temperature and time, respectively) and that wood smoke is an essential ingredient.

“Low and slow" is a BBQ catchphrase for a reason: The long, slow cooking allows the tough cuts of meat that are typically used for barbecue to become tender and soak up the flavors of the smoke.

The roots of BBQ can be traced to the beginning of civilization, when our prehistoric ancestors learned that meat tastes a whole lot better when roasted over a fire.

Perhaps the first BBQ was the result of a forest fire, which roasted meat on the hoof in a natural conflagration. In the half century preceding the Civil War, large outdoor BBQ parties had become a common feature in Southern culture, most often featuring a whole roasted pig. Plantation owners hosted large, festive BBQs to entertain neighbors and friends, or to feed their slaves.

Barbecue; barbeque; bar-b-que; BBQ: Multiple spellings echo just how many kinds of barbecue there are. Barbecue is not a dish, or a cooking device, it is a method of cooking.

Since the meat cooks in low indirect heat, very little of the natural juices in the meat boil off. Classic BBQ is therefore tender and juicy, pink in color, and smoky in flavor, the precise flavor depending on what wood is used for the indirect heat that produces your smoke.

Pittsburgh BBQ is also famous for its tangy sauces with which it smothers the roasted meat.

BBQ sauces are the most important ingredient to be added to your dish to deliver the mouth savoring flavor. The most important rule about BBQ sauce is, never add your sauce until the meat is fully cooked and ready to serve. If you add the sauce while the meat is grilling, you run the risk of burnt exteriors because of the high sugar content in most sauces.
