If you know South Carolina BBQ, you know the name Dukes. And if you know Dukes, you have certainly heard about Dukes BBQ hash. If you add one SC barbecue hash recipe to your arsenal, this Dukes BBQ style hash recipe is one to add to the family cookbook.
There are a dozen Dukes restaurants in SC at the time of this writing, but while they share similar qualities, they are not all the same. Walk into Dukes of Walterboro and you will not get the exact same menu or experience as you would at the Dukes in Ridgeville. They are not a chain or franchise, per se, but rather a loosely connected assortment of family restaurants.
One thing they all have in common is a delicacy unique to South Carolina: hash. This is not to be confused with Brunswick Stew, common in BBQ restaurants in NC and GA.

South Carolina barbecue hash recipes all yield a thick stew of sorts whose exact ingredients vary from family to family and restaurant to restaurant. However, common among all the variations of SC BBQ hash recipes, you’ll always find its base built upon a meat product — typically pork, sometimes beef, and often a combination.
This rich, meaty foundation is layered with some combination of onions, potatoes, and BBQ sauce. Then it is all boiled down (and sometimes ground) into a thick, soupy stew.
Often lovingly called “liquid sausage,” SC BBQ hash is generally served atop a bed of white rice.
While that may not sound delicious to the uninitiated, most native South Carolinians expect a side of hash and rice when they go out to eat barbecue. Dukes’ BBQ hash recipe is one that has kept them coming back for over five decades.
Here’s an old clip from SCETV discussing Dukes BBQ hash at the Dukes on Whitman in Orangeburg.
Below you will find our Dukes BBQ hash recipe we received from Michael Ott, who originally grew up in Orangeburg County, the heart of Dukes BBQ country, and has family ties to Dukes BBQ. It is not Dukes’s actual recipe. “It’s good, but not a match for Dukes,” he said humbly.
In this piece, we examine the origins and history of yet another SC BBQ original. In addition, you will find a current listing of every SCBBQ restaurant that serves hash.
For your convenience, we’ve included an interactive SC BBQ Hash Map which is similar to our SC BBQ Trail Map, only this map filters the result to show only those places serving some version of an SC barbecue hash recipe, regardless of meat base, flavoring, or style.
With your permission, the map will find your location and show you the closest 25 places serving hash within 100 miles of you.
And, of course, you’ll find several SC BBQ hash recipes to make at home. Among them, you will discover a beef hash recipe that certainly a different style than Dukes’ and more commonly found in the Upstate.
But be sure to come back to make and enjoy this Dukes BBQ hash recipe from Michael.
