The fun starts today, forget about the play-in games already done.
My BBQ Calendar has some Etymology: barbacoa.
From a lexicography standpoint, barbecue is derived from the word barbacoa, used by Taino Indians in the Caribbean to describe an elevated wooden rack on which they slow smoked at low temperatures fish, lizards, alligator, and other game.
The word barbacoa was brought to Europe by Spanish explorers and it first appeared in print in Spain in the 1526. Even though the word was for the stand, not the food or the method, it expanded to include both in Europe.
