Rise & Puff's Gourmet BBQ Chicken Quesadilla
At Rise & Puff, we're on a mission to bring the soulful flavors of the South to your table with a modern twist. One of our founders is deeply rooted in the rich BBQ tradition of the Southern United States, particularly Kentucky, where BBQ isn't just a meal but a cultural event, a highlight of any gathering. Picture slow-cooked tender meats, eaten with messy fingers, and spirited conversations around a picnic table—it's a delightful experience that leaves a mark on your taste buds.
The Roots of BBQ
To truly appreciate the art of BBQ, it's important to understand its historical origins. BBQ, short for "barbecue," has a long and storied history dating back to indigenous cultures in the Americas. The word "barbecue" itself is believed to have derived from the Taino word "barbacoa", which referred to a wooden structure used for cooking meat over an open flame.
BBQ as we know it today began to take shape in the Southern United States. It's said that the Spanish, in the early 16th century, introduced hogs to the Americas, which eventually became a staple of Southern BBQ. The method of slow-cooking meat over an open flame or in a pit became a Southern tradition.
Regional BBQ Diversity
One of the fascinating aspects of BBQ is the incredible regional diversity it offers across the South. From South Carolina's tangy mustard-based sauce to Texas-style smoky, savory offerings, each region has its own unique take on this beloved tradition. However, our personal favorite has to be the Kansas City Style BBQ sauce, known for its thick, sweet, and tangy profile. It's the inspiration behind our gourmet quesadilla.
