  1. “Buccaneers and BBQ” is actually quite apt, because the term buccaneer originally meant “drier of beef” in French (boucanier), and described the primitive beef-drying carried out by men on the island of Hispaniola (modern-day Haiti and Dominican Republic). Probably the beef made by this process more closely resembled jerky than modern-day barbecue, however.
