What Folks are Saying


I like it all....

...but if I have to choose what I like most, then let’s say the recipes. Love to read all the recipes and take note of the different ingredients, but can’t beat Rodney Scotts’ vinegar and pepper mop sauce! Buy it. I did, and I am going to use it. I love all things BBQ.

A Must Have!

The SCBBQ cookbook is the best thing I have found and will give you the recipes for many things, hash being one of them. It is all anyone needs to BBQ like a pro. It features many different styles of South Carolina BBQ and sauces. If you are serious about BBQ, this is a must have!

Diversity of recipes. Background stories. Great pics! If you want traditional SC bbq and fixin’s, this is the most complete collection I’ve found. Thanks!

Would Definitely Recommend It

SC restaurants and recipes. I grew up in Batesburg but judged BBQ contests in TN, MS, MO, etc. Actually made the Food Channel...not cooking skills, but judged MIM finals in 99, which was on TV...Big Bob Gibson won. Guess what I'm saying is the book is well done and the Holly Hill update very informative...keep it up.

Even though I prefer a paper book, I would definitely recommend it and, in fact, already have.

Give it a try... definitely worth it if interested in SC BBQ...filled a void in my BBQ library which is fairly extensive...

By Locals for Locals

What I liked most about the cookbook is the research and backstories. Even though I grew up on Lexington NC BBQ, you've got to get this cookbook as there is much more variety to BBQ in SC, If you can't decide, this is a labor of love, with a lot of volunteer time and input. It's by locals for locals and you should support it for that alone.
