The Murky History of Barbecue Sauce

It is said that the exact origin of barbecue sauce is unknown, that it is possible Columbus brought barbecue sauce back from the Americas sometime in the 15th century.  The Taino, people indigenous to the Caribbean, lent the name barabicu to Mexico where it became barbacoa.  The first barbecue sauces were moles that varied all throughout Mexico.  While our barbecue sauce has little in common with the moles of yore (¿llore?), it was fun to make and really complemented pork ribs.     

It's DH's secret recipe, this was all I could leak...
