Barbecue is a popular summer meal that the public loves, but there is no reason any animal has to die for you to enjoy it. Many restaurants across the country serve vegan barbecue dishes that ignore pigs, cows, chickens and all other animals. Creative dishes from these establishments include seitan ribs, jackfruit, braised pork and smoked chicken, and all other snacks.
