Fun Facts: The Sizzling Stories Behind Grill Culture
Ever wondered where the verb form of the word "grill" comes from? Or how the golden grillz of Paul Wall and Johnny Dang came into being? Well, then you're in the right place. Welcome to the "Fun Facts" section, where we unveil some juicy tidbits and tales from the grill world, which you can share at your next barbecue party.
Did you know that the word "grill" owes its origin to the French word "gril" and the Latin "craticulum" meaning a small, useful grid.
When the Spanish conquistadors arrived in South American countries, they noticed the indigenous tribes were cooking meat on a grill constructed of green wooden sticks. They called it "barbacoa," an open fire cooking method that is still in use today.
Ever wondered how grillz became a hip-hop fashion symbol? The trend began in the early 1980s when famous rappers like Slick Rick and Big Daddy Kane started wearing them. Fast forward to today, and they've become a symbol of wealth and social status in the music video world, adorned by many artists like Lil Jon, A$AP Rocky, and even Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus at the Paris Fashion Week!
While both delicious, Korean barbecue and American barbecue are vastly different. Korean barbecue, like the popular beef brisket, is often marinated and cooked on a grill right at the table. American barbecue, like the classic grill in Kansas City or South Carolina, involves slower cooking methods, often over indirect heat or hot coals, and the use of dry rubs or sauces.
Known as Eddie's Famous Gold Teeth, this pawn shop-turned-grill-shop is where many famous rappers got their gold and precious stone studded grills. Interestingly, the trend of grills can be traced back to ancient civilizations. The Etruscans (an ancient Italian civilization) and even the Mayans prized decorated teeth as a sign of wealth and status.
The Southeast Asian region, including Vietnam, has a unique grilling technique. They use banana trees, not for fruit but for the leaves. The leaves are used as a wrapper for meats, adding a sweet aroma when grilled. Next time you're barbecuing, why not try a leaf-wrapped grilled dish for that Vietnamese touch?
Remember, grilling isn't just about making delicious food—it's also about the rich culture, intriguing history, and diverse techniques behind it. So next time you fire up that grill, you're not just cooking — you're part of a worldwide tradition that spans centuries!
