Rodney Scott’s BBQ Review

Rodney Scott’s BBQ opened in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2017. Scott began barbecuing at a young age at his parents’ variety store and restaurant. His specialty is whole hog barbecue; a technique of smoking an entire splayed hog over a wood-fired barbecue pit. In 2018, Scott was named Best Chef: Southeast by the James Beard Foundation. He was recently featured on Netflix’s Chef’s Table: BBQ. His restaurant has a second location in Birmingham, Alabama. A third is slated to open soon in Atlanta, Georgia.


With the hype and accolades for Scott, I was excited to try his barbecue. My group and I visited his Charleston location for lunch. The space was crowded, as expected, but there were still tables available. We each ordered from the counter and grabbed a table outside. I knew I wanted to try the whole hog barbecue, so I opted for the whole hog pork plate which comes with eight ounces of meat and a choice of two sides. I selected mac & cheese and coleslaw. Despite the crowd, the bussers were quite quick to deliver meals to diners. Our orders arrived after a short wait and we dug in.

The pork was incredibly tender. The flavor was subtle, with notes of black pepper and vinegar. I decided to skip adding barbecue sauce, as I really enjoyed the flavor of the pork. The sides were enjoyable, though the pork was clearly the standout of the meal.


With an abundance of barbecue options in Charleston, a stop at Rodney Scott’s BBQ is a must.
