One of the things I miss most about home is something that is dear to my heart. “What is this thing?” you might be wondering, well it’s Barbecue! Barbecuing is a cooking method that involves slow smoking a variety of meats to give them a delicious and Smokey flavor. Barbecuing is usually done outside do to the nature of it cooking method, and in Texas it’s usually done at family gatherings. Almost every state known for barbecue in the United States that is has its own style of barbecuing like dry barbecue or wet barbecue. Wet barbecue is meat that’s cooked in barbecue sauce and this makes the meat very tender. In Texas, however, we make dry barbecue, which is coating the meat in seasons and slow smoking it for long hours. After I graduated from high school I worked at a barbecue food stand for about a year with my best friend. This experience made me appreciate barbecue so much and showed me the hard work it takes to make something so delicious! Barbecue is usually served with certain sides that usually are the same where ever you go. These sides are typically: pinto beans, mac and cheese, potato salad, and slices of bread. This is something I highly recommend trying if you ever visit Texas!
