I have to disagree with this one. Respectfully, of course. I've been once and it was very meh. Menu is too limited and it's too much "artisanal" barbecue for me. They try to do too much, IMO.

Head to Head:

Pulled Pork: Smoking Pig
Brisket: Spotted Pig (surprised the hell out of me, maybe it was an off day)
Sides: Smoking Pig (those jalapeno cheddar grits... boy)
Sweet Tea: Spotted Pig
Sauces: Smoking Pig, but barely
Portions: Smoking Pig (I almost didn't finish)

Overall, Smoking Pig is better, but really not by much. Spotted Pig is closer to me, and is easier to get in/out of, so they get my business more often.

HOWEVER... you CAN'T go wrong with either, and they're definitely both worth a visit if you're in the upstate for a weekend or on your way to Atlanta (Spotted Pig is maybe 5 miles off Exit 1 on I-85, and Smoking Pig is maybe 6 miles from Exit 19 on I-85)

Salt and Pepper. Lewis was one of the guys that helped start Franklin's in Austin, I imagine the menu and processes will all be very similar, though I'm hoping he'll add some SC flair to the pork.

Doc's BBQ is good but their hash is weird. It has a chalky consistency that I just can't get past. Big T's has really good hash and their collards may be the best I've had anywhere.

Their catfish nuggets, fried chicken, and mustard sauce more than make up for it. Whenever I make my way up to Columbia I always try to get by Doc's at least once.

I'm very "meh" when it comes to Doc's. Last time I went there, the pork was not good at all. It kind of soured me on the place, especially where there are so many other options around the Midlands that I can go and eat.
