“CUT/CHOP/COOK”

Produced for the 2010 Big Apple BBQ Block Party, CUT/CHOP/COOK profiles Rodney Scott of Scott’s Bar-B-Q in Hemingway, South Carolina. Says Scott, “We only cook with wood and I’m so sure that we only cook with wood because we go out and chop it ourselves.” Monday through Wednesday, you’ll find Scott doing just that, cutting down trees and chopping wood, and Thursday through Saturday he burns that wood down into coals that he uses to cook a half-dozen whole hogs every night. This film was produced by the University of Mississippi’s Media & Documentary Projects Center & the Southern Foodways Alliance, with funding from the Union Square Hospitality Group.

Rodney Scott is in the middle of his In Exile barbecue tour, so now seems as good a time as any for this short film.
