Dukes BBQ of Bamberg

Dukes Barbecue in Bamberg, SC

When it comes to SC BBQ, Dukes is one of the great family names. There are a number of Dukes restaurants scattered throughout the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Dukes is not a franchise or a chain despite what many people may assume. All are loosely connected by family ties, but they are all separate and unique entities.

This article by Robert Moss, published in the Charleston City Paper, sheds some light on this family BBQ business and their history, going back to the original Earl Dukes of Orangeburg.

Dukes is famous for spawning the “Orangeburg Sweet” mustard-based BBQ sauce that is really a mixture containing mayo, mustard and ketchup, according to a source we spoke with at Antley’s in Orangeburg.
