What Is Barbacoa?

What Is Barbacoa?

If it wasn’t already pretty clear from the spelling, the origins of the word barbecue come from from the word barbacoa, found in many Amerindian languages spoken by indigenous people throughout modern-day Barbados, Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana and eastern Venezuela. So it's no surprise that the modern day Mexican tradition of roasting meat outdoors is called barbacoa. As a result, a huge part of eating barbacoa is how you eat it, often on some type of tortilla with different salsas. Throughout Mexico, and now the world, you can find barbacoa 24/7 from restaurants and taco stands. However, barbacoa is not something that people tend to just cook for a casual weeknight dinner.
