Just a little something to break up the talk about suspensions and injuries.
What are your top 5 BBQ places in SC. I don't think I've had enough to give a true top 5. But I really like Hudson's.
I am a big fan of these guys in the Upstate.
1. Sweatman's BBQ in Ewtauville - honey mustard ribs like pine tar...you can keep licking it off your cheeks and fingers for a couple days after. The most authentic old time bbq joint in SC - a throwback to better days. I go there any time I'm within an hour if I have time. Hell, if I don't have time I usually MAKE time! AWESOME!
2. Little Pigs in Columbia - most complete offering and best buffet anywhere for the money.
3. Henry's in Greenville - can stake a legitimate claim for the smokiest most delicious swine but no buffet.
4. Hudson's in Lexington - the best sauce if you're the type who thinks sauce is bbq.
5 Roger's in Florence - everything is good but the sweet potato pie is worth driving 2 hours for if you're not on weight watchers..
2, 3 , and 4 are interchangeable.

Bucky's has better Ribs. There dry rub seasoning is not even close. There side vittles are better too.
Damn straight......To me good BBQ is where you don't have to have sauce in order to make the meat taste better....Bucky's flavor is the best and I never put sauce on it......
Henry's is outstanding. Love the hash.
1. Brown's (Kingstree)
Thanks. I think the ribs at Henry's are awesome so if Bucky's are better, I need to try them. But you better be right or else I could've had Henry's!
Now.. I have to agree they do have very good Hash.
Forgot about Brown's! Can we have 6 or 7 joints in the top 5???
Eleven bucks all you can eat on Friday night..
Brown's is the best hands down IMHO. Believe I'll take the route through Kingstree when I'm on my way to Pawley's next month.

1) Brown's BBQ - Kingstree
2) Sweatman's BBQ - Eutawville/Holly Hill
3) Schoolhouse BBQ - Scranton
4) Roger's BBQ - Florence
5) Little Pig's BBQ - Columbia
Dukes BBQ - several locations from Blackville to Bamberg to O-burg - love the red hash
Cain's BBQ - BBQ is plain but their buffet is great, pork chops are to die for and Friday night bluegrass is awesome
Shuler's BBQ - Latta - very rustic, nice location, great ribs and buffet
Lonestar BBQ & Mercantile - Santee - BBQ is nothing to write home about but the atmosphere is great

Elgin Volunteer Fire Department in Lancaster, SC. Only available twice a year, once in the spring, and once in the fall. So good, the trains that pass through stop. Minced so fine, you don't even have to chew it, and a tomato/vinegar sauce, or mustard based, so everyone can have their favorite. I'm not going to lie, I not only eat in at the all-you-can-eat buffet, but usually buy 4-5 pounds for the freezer to get me by until next time.
Lots of BBQ from other locations, but to me, this is the best, and the success and anticipation when folks start looking for the dates say it all.
On a side note, if anyone ever wants the absolute best Brunswick Stew ever, do yourself a favor and go to "Fresh Air BBQ" in Jackson, Georgia. There's one in Macon as well, but I've never been to it. Go to the one in Jackson and have been once a year since I was born, and the stew never changes. I also fill the freezer with it. You can't stop eating it. Seriously...
Not a restaurant, but you can buy a pound of the best BBQ in the upstate at G&W Packing in Hickory Grove, SC $3.49 a pound, cheap but good! No sauce needed.
What's the problem with the bbq joints in Greenville? I hesitate to include them in the top 5 because they have no buffet? A bbq joint should offer all you want!
Jackie Hites BBQ in Batesburg. Delicious,

It's a shame what has happened to Shealy's in B-L. It's not in the same universe from where it was 15-20 years ago when I first went there. B_L folks are funny though. They are either Shealys or Hites fans and they don't change. Used to be that way in Florence with Cain's and Woody's.
Been meaning to try Schoolhouse. Sorry for misspelling Eutawville. How could I?
Henry's in Greenville for me!
Can't do the buffet thing, the thought of the germs kills me. Henry's is great regardless. I eat there 3 times a month at least, even if it is run by Taters.
Neither Shealy's or Hite's would make my top 20. If in B/L Shealy's is a fried chicken joint, not a bbq joint.
Rogers for me. The spicy vinegar....ahhhhhhhh so good. The squash casserole is best buffet item ive ever had.
There is a new place in Boykin (between Camden and Sumter) called Big Al's BBQ. Excellent BBQ and ribs. It is where the old Boykin grill used to be on HWY 261. I think they are open on Friday and Saturday nights.
