in one of Peter Lamborne Wilaon's talks in the 1980s, we learned that one likely origin of the word and concept of BBQ was from pirate boucaniers. And pirates were notoriously mixed as to race.

Tons of Sikhs in farming here in Northern California. But do they eat pig?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 6:20pm dale:

The Origin of the Word Barbecue. Today I found out why barbecues are called that. The word “barbecue” comes from the Caribbean word “barbacoa.” Originally, a barbacoa wasn't a way of cooking food, but the name of a wooden structure used by Taino Indians to smoke their food.

In Sikhism, only lacto-vegetarian food is served in the Gurdwara (Sikh temple) but Sikhs are not bound to be meat-free. The general consensus is that Sikhs are free to choose whether to adopt a meat diet or not.
