Quite honestly, I've had equal pork at Dukes, which is only special because it's a buffet.

I did see some ribs a few people had, the ribs looked fantastic. I'll give him a second chance and try ribs next time.
They have large open windows into the room where they smoke the pigs. Would be pretty tough to hide if they were firing everything over propane.

They let their wood burn down to embers before it goes under the pig, so I think that's why you don't get a very pronounced smoke flavor.

Their ribs are better than their Q in my opinion. Definitely give em a try.

The problem is, South Carolina basically ditched its BBQ heritage so long ago that nobody really knows what it was/is anymore. Now that BBQ is "cool" we run out with all these slogans about "Birthplace of BBQ" but if you ask anybody what is SC BBQ the only thing we can answer is ... mustard base sauce

With Scott's being a 3rd generation, I would say they're probably the close to tradition as you'll find in SC ... therefore I would make the conclusion that SC BBQ is pulled whole hog with vinegar based sauce.
If you want to go all the way back to the oldest roots of BBQ I think the vinegar sauce as we currently know it is the closest thing to the original, but I the other sauces certainly have their place in SC BBQ history, and the mustard sauce is definitely unique to the state. It really just depends on where in the state you are.

It was odd. The naked pork (without sauce) had really no flavor at all, which gives the impression of cooking over gas instead of smoke. No smoke flavor at all, and I couldn't even taste the flavor of the meat having been "mopped" while being cooked. I've had whole hog cooked over embers, I've had whole hog cooked in a La Caja China box, you can always taste at least a hint of smoke in every bite of meat...this had none.

It gave me the definite impression that he's turning out more volume than he can cook on smoke, so gas is being used to help the process. He may not be using gas onsite, but the pronounced smoke smell outside didn't match up with the product on my plate. The pulled pork didn't seem to fit with the way the ribs looked, it gives the impression he's cooking butts on gas somewhere, maybe using that to "stretch" his supply of pulled pork.

The ribs did look very good, appeared to have a nice bark on them. A couple people by me had ribs, everyone else seemed to have pulled pork. I think the ribs may be the real deal.

On a humorous note, the food comes with two slices of white bread. I had a guy sitting behind me tap my shoulder, and ask why they gave him bread when he didn't order a sandwich. Needless to say, I noted that he must not be from around here, and asked where he was from....Ohio. Nice guy, his daughter's going to attend CofC.

I have eaten a lot of Que from NC, SC, and GA and after reading many, many, posts/comments/and opinions - I think it basically comes down to what your own personal taste is. I have eaten at a few places where people "speak highly of the quality of the Que" and after eating there for myself I have to wonder why people would waste their time and money going there.


I guess that it comes down to this; if a place you try for the first time is pretty good and maybe not your all time favorite - it still should be rank way up there with the best that you ever had. We all will have our favorite place and dare anyone to judge against it, but I think it is what you were raised with and what you have had or eaten a lot in the world of Bar-B-Que.


There are many places great places across our South land to eat great Bar-B-Que and I would put Rodney Scott's place up against any of them.

I hit Scott’s in Charleston after reading all these rave reviews.
  • Chicken was on point, fall off the bone smack yo momma good, smoked to the bone.
  • Pork was tender and moist, not much flavor. I tried it on a sandwich, pulled with both sauces and straight up. Nothing about it really stood out.
  • Ribs were decent, but on the dry side. Maybe they were having a bad day. I prefer baby-backs to spares.
  • Sides: great hush puppies, bake beans were over the top spicy.
  • I got the $22 plate, my wife even commented that it wasn’t enough food for that price considering the market price of pork, spare ribs, and leg quarters. He must be making a killing.

It’s was good bbq, but I wouldn’t crown it the King of BBQ in SC...but maybe Charleston based on other places I have been. I would definitely go back for the chicken alone, and maybe give the ribs a second chance.

Last week, we went to Scott’s in Charleston and then a few nights later we tried Poogan’s Smokehouse. I’d been to Poogan’s Porch many times, but this was my first at their BBQ restaurant.

I cannot vote against Scott’s, but 3 in our party liked Poogan’s better. It was very good.

Mass production of bbq is tough. When we do whole hog I pull everything, baste in my vinegar sauce and then bring the grill back up to temp for an hour or two. Adding bbq sauce to dry bbq hours after it's been cooked is never going to give you the best product.
