Yes, I think it is pretty well agreed that Mankind has "barbecued" since a
caveman threw an aurochs steak on a rock. In period England was known
as the best roasters in the world.
That has nothing to do with the gist of the competition for Gulf Wars.
They want smoked and tomato or mustard basted modern 'que. I'm not
happy with this.
But I have suggested at least a period category. No word yet on that.

The book looks good.
