It’s that time of the year when the sun is shining bright and BBQ lovers are all set to huddle up in their backyards and get cooking! The term “barbecue” originates from the age-old Caribbean tradition of smoking food over a fire using a support made of green wood called “barbacoa” in Spanish. The tradition and fun have been carried down to the recent days when friends and family get together to cook, dance and enjoy to their heart’s content.
