Probably a barbeque:
"The word "buccaneer" comes from boucan, meat prepared in a manner
similar to modern barbeque. Pirates were in the habit of going onto
Hispaniola and other islands, killing semi-wild cattle and boars and
cooking the meat over an open flame. They often used the meat to barter
with ships seeking provisions."
