[WarOf1812] BBQ Lafitte
- Found this the other day, already knew the origin, but it sparked my silly
mind...nothing new then, eh?
"Buccaneer: A term synonymous with "pirate," it grew from the outlaws who
lived on several Caribbean islands in the 1600s. The first so-called
buccaneers hunted wild pigs and cows, smoking the meat in a barbecue frame
called a boucan in French (so the word "buccaneer" is something akin to the
French for "barbecuer"). The buccaneers traded the smoked meat for goods and
gunpowder. When colonial governors tried to stop the trade, the buccaneers
turned to the sea — and to piracy."
