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

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.

My favorite place for BBQ is Shealy's BBQ in Batesburg/Leesville, SC. The BBQ and Hash is excellent and the buffet is good too. The pricing is very reasonable, $9.50 on Mondays and it is "all that you can eat"!!!

CLOSED Wednesdays and Sundays!!!!!!

A colleague of mine will whole heartedly agree with you about the brisket at Lewis' as well as the pulled pork. I had a very good meal yesterday in Aiken at a newer place called WillieJewels...

Had the Bo Dawg sandwich which was great. The sauces are very good but a little different than traditional types and my favorite was the hot mustard.

I don’t know if I would talk about them in terms of the best barbecue in the state, but I had some really good pulled pork at Big Bull’s BBQ on Hardscrabble Road a couple of weeks ago. Brisket was very tasty, maybe a tad overcooked. They also serve soul food, and the collards were amazing.

Anyone here ever tried it?

docs chicken is fantastic but the hash is terrible. I love hash so i am never real excited about going there.

i honestly love the hash at piggie park..the ribs there are awesome also..i i know that is heresy though.

I have already mentioned Carolina Bar-B-Que in New Ellenton and I will have to add Rodney Scott's Bar-B-Que in Charleston, SC is very high on my list now.

Shealy's Bar-B-Que in Leesville, SC is OK, but it is mustard based and I think that they cook it over gas grill. Jackie Hite's in Leesville, SC has much better tasting Bar-B-Que than Shealy's, but at Shealy's they do a good job on their chicken and plenty of side dishes. They could put a little effort into their desserts as they can be a tad on the plain side.

What, no love for Henry's in Greenville? I love their pulled pork sandwich.

Also, if you want to drive just a bit further north, 12 Bones in Asheville is top notch, especially if you like ribs. And their sides are so good, that I sometimes just get sides, no meat.
