Celebrate National Beef Month with Woody’s Bar-B-Q
Among BBQ lovers, May is well-known for its standing as National Barbecue Month. However, did you know it also represents National Beef Month? While pork often steals the lion’s share of the limelight when it comes to BBQ in the South, beef has also played an essential role in the rise of this smoky and savory cuisine. It is widely believed that when Spanish explorers happened upon the indigenous people of the Caribbean, they were introduced to a new way to preserve meats called “barbacoa.” A variety of meats – from boar and mutton to cattle and deer – were cooked low and slow over a pit. As these conquistadors continued their explorations north to what is now North America, it is said they brought this cooking style with them. As a result, it gained a solid footing in the South – from the Carolinas, where pulled pork reigns supreme, to Texas, where beef is the undeniable king.
What is National Beef Month?
Launched in conjunction with the “Beef: It’s What’s for Dinner” campaign from the Cattlemen’s Beef Board and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, National Beef Month is designed to celebrate the versatility of beef as well as the enduring dedication of beef farmers and ranchers throughout the nation. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), in 2022, cattle production represented roughly 17% of the $462 billion in agricultural commodities. As a family-owned and operated company, we at Woody’s Bar-B-Q love the fact that 97% of cattle farms and ranches are family-owned, with a reported 54% being in the family for three or more generations.
