I was really going for the ancestral European origins of American BBQ 
styles, but we seem to have devolved into personal BBQ recipes already.

My web brower is a bit ferklempt at the moment [O thank you, Apple 
updates, I hope you get an eye infection] so I can't pull up the name,  
but Jared can probably expound on the grilled meat tradition in 
Eder-Oberstein, Germany, which was brought back by German miners from 
working in beef country in South America.  It sounds yummy, if not period.
