The term itself may derive from a French term meaning something to the effect of "head to tail."
Oh please. Barbecue is the exact opposite of French cooking.

Yah, there isn't much french about BBQ. I was told that it originated from a cattle ranch that with the "Bar" BQ brand. The name implys the sauce
