Description

Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ in Charleston, SC in 2017 was born out of a friendship between Rodney Scott and Nick Pihakis and their mutual respect for the time and technique required to make great barbecue. Understanding the history of the craft, the difference it makes in flavor profiles to cook over live coal direct heat, and the dying art of whole hog barbecue is what drives them. Hardwood is burned down to glowing embers at the side of the bbq pits. Those embers are shoveled carefully under the meat and tended—paying special attention to temperature and heat placement—using those coals to regulate cooking through the entire process.

The work is smoky, difficult and satisfying but turning the craft into a business is a way to ensure the survival of an important part of history and a traditional cooking technique that imparts a very unique flavor into meats. With Rodney Scott’s BBQ restaurants in Charleston, SC, Birmingham, AL and Atlanta, GA, there are pitmasters who are trained in the same way that Rodney Scott has been working the pits since he was a kid. In addition to serving outstanding food, Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ is committed to passing on the enjoyment, education and tradition of whole hog bbq to new generations.
