Subject: RE: BS: the people who make the corned beef
Hmm, Ron, I'm a skeptic in reference to your last post. Since smoking brisket requires a very, very, long period of slow cooking, and the cattle heards had little time to spend waiting on "Cookie" to prepare meals, I doubt very much that the trail cooks had much to do with the "invention" of BBQ. Maybe the ranch cooks, when not on a cattle drive. might have contributed to developing BBQ, but ...
Now, Chili, that's a different thing..
