Bessinger’s BBQ Revisited

Bessinger's BBQ West Ashley - Plate 1

All reviews should be taken with a grain of salt, especially those like ours which are typically one-time experiences. Restaurants, like you and I, have their good and bad moments. Couple that with the fact that each person has his or her own taste preferences, and you can understand why any two people may come […]

Roberts Bar B Que ~ North Charleston, SC

Robert's Bar B Que in North Charleston, Pulled Pork Platter

Robert’s Bar B Que has been a staple in North Charleston for many years. Robert’s is born of the Bessinger clan of BBQ restaurants that dominate the SC BBQ scene. Robert is one of five of Joseph Bessinger’s sons (the others are Maurice, Thomas, Melvin, and Joe David) who learned to cook BBQ the way […]

Moe’s Original Bar B Que ~ Pawleys Island, SC

Moe's Original BBQ in Pawleys Island

Baseball brings BBQ into our lives. And, as usual a baseball tournament gave us the opportunity to sample Moe’s Original BBQ on Pawleys Island. I first noticed Moe’s on previous trips through the area. Recently, Lake High, president of the SC Barbecue Association, of which Heather and I are members, contacted me about Moe’s. He […]

Cooper’s Country Store ~ Salters, SC

Cooper's Country Store in Salters, SC

Cooper’s Country store is a living history, echoing a previous era. It is a place that I’ve known about for years, long before I had any idea I’d ever write a barbecue blog or even knew they served barbecue. Theron Burrows opened an Esso gas station, dubbed Burrows’s Service Station, in 1937 when Hwy 521 first […]

Lewis Barbecue @ Revelry Brewing ~ Charleston, SC

Revelry Brewing's

Over the years, we have gone to great barbecue. This time great barbecue has come to us. John Lewis, the Texas-born pitmaster who spoke with us recently, will be bringing Central Texas BBQ to Charleston when he opens Lewis Barbecue in “late 2015.” Indeed, we rode by what will be his new place on the corner of Nassau and Isabella […]

Sticky Fingers ~ Mount Pleasant, SC

Sticky Fingers of Mt. Pleasant Sauces

Sticky Fingers is a franchise restaurant that had its humble beginnings here in Mt. Pleasant. They opened their doors in 1992 and today they have 16 locations around the Southeast. We had the opportunity to drop in on March 13, 2015, a mere 23 years later. The Wando baseball program sells a Savings Card that includes […]

Herb and Shawn’s Bar-B-Que ~ Georgetown, SC

Herb & Shawn's in Georgetown Plate 3

On January 24, 2015, Heather and I were returning from a seminar in Conway, SC, put on by the South Carolina Barbeque Association.  This was our initial orientation into the official world of judging barbeque, our first step to becoming official SCBA certified BBQ judges. The event was fantastic and left us with a hankering to […]

TJ’s BBQ and Burgers ~ Goose Creek, SC

TJ's BBQ - One and Two

We found ourselves in Goose Creek on Saturday, Feb. 28, 2015, for a baseball tournament. Camden made the Wando JV baseball team, and they were playing their first two games of the season at Goose Creek High School for the Rotary Baseball Classic pre-season tournament. As with much of our BBQ tasting, baseball often is […]
