Barbecue in South Carolina, by tradition, is a whole hog, cooked low and slow for 12+ hours over wood embers burned down and shoveled in from a burn barrel nearby. It’s hard, hot, time-consuming work to bring barbecue like this to the table. And that is one reason why whole hog barbecue is such a rare treat. Moree’s Bar-B-Que built its reputation on that whole hog tradition.
In fact, customers missed the incomparable Moree’s so much that when it closed briefly during the coronavirus outbreak they set a new sales record the weekend it reopened. That weekend they sold 500 plates of Moree’s delicious whole hog barbecue.
Moree also makes a pristine hash, following the recipe his parents worked out when they opened the white cinderblock restaurant in 1964.
Moree’s Bar-B-Que was featured in an article on SC BBQ Hash written by Post & Courier Food Editor Hanna Raskin. In her article, Raskin feature the “non-liver” hash makers of SC. She wrote the following about Moree’s”
By far the finest of the hashes that shun liver, Moree’s peppery hash is a soul-satisfying triumph of seasoning. In fact, Donald Moree says, “A little piece of liver would ruin the whole pot.” Moree follows the recipe which his parents worked out when they opened the restaurant in 1964; he thus far hasn’t disclosed its details to any of the many people who’ve asked, relatives included. “The family knows some of it, but they don’t know it all,” he says.
Whether you go for the hash or the whole-hog, wood-cooked barbecue, a trip to Moree’s Bar-B-Que should be added to your bucket list.
