Editor's note: All summer long, the Southern Foodways Alliance delved deep in the history, tradition, heroes and plain old deliciousness of barbecue across the United States. Dig in.

For years, the history of barbecue has been shrouded in misty myths and tall tales, from angels delivering sauce recipes in dreams to convoluted explanations for the origins of barbecue terminology. A few weeks ago my fellow blogger Daniel Vaughn dug into the spelling and origins of the word “barbecue” itself, including the oft-repeated claim that the word comes from the French phrase barbe a queue, meaning “beard to tail”, a shorthand for cooking a whole hog.

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Would you believe that the man who succeeded Sir Isaac Newton as President of the Royal Society in Britain invented chocolate milk? Well, he did. Sir Hans Sloane, a doctor and collector, not only created this childhood classic in 1687, but he also touted its "health-giving" qualities.

The combination of chocolate and milk is a natural one. Chocolate milk can either be made by adding powdered cocoa and a sweetener to milk, or by dissolving sweetened chocolate syrup in milk.
