Chef Bill will regale us with the full monty of American barbecue. He will tell us how the barbecue played a vital role in pre-revolutionary politics as early as 1758, and continues as the traditional 4th of July way to celebrate our independence since 1776. It evolved from a rowdy male dominated celebration, to politically motivated gatherings, to the more family oriented event we think of today. Bill will also show us how barbecue as an American food can be traced from its Virginian roots.
