Dukes Barbecue in Walterboro

Dukes Barbecue in Walterboro, SC

Dukes is one of the great family names in SC BBQ history.

There are a number of Dukes restaurants spread throughout the South Carolina Lowcountry. Dukes, however, is not a franchise or a chain. All of these restaurants are loosely tied by family connections, but each stands on its own and is different from the others.

The Charleston City Paper shed some light on this family BBQ business and its history, starting with Earl Dukes beginning the dynasty in Orangeburg.

Dukes is famous for creating the “Orangeburg Sweet” mustard-based BBQ sauce that some refer to as “Rust Gravy.”  Their sauce is actually a mixture of mayo, mustard and ketchup, according to a source we spoke with at Antley’s in Orangeburg.
