Region to region around the world the word barbecue means something different depending on where you are. In most places around the world it generally means direct cooking (grilling) over wood or coals but in America it means something different...and that something different is something to die for!
Big hunks of meat cooked indirectly and slowly with patience, care and attention at low temperatures. All over the States the process remains a constant but the ingredients vary from State to State and in many places the recipes remain closely guarded secrets.
Who and where has the best techniques, temperatures and tastes has been argued over for many years and probably will be argued over for many years to come but what's not in dispute is the juicy tender results that this style of barbecue cooking delivers.

Note:- Barbecue has been around since the dawn of time but American barbecue (the way we know it today) has really only been around since the late 1800's and early 1900's when the first barbecue restaurants started to pop up.
It was further popularized with the advent of the charcoal briquette and it's move into mass production by Henry Ford. It's hard to identify what, when or who developed into the staple that it is today but when you sink your teeth into moist juicy ribs smothered in sweet barbecue sauce it's not difficult to understand why.
