Friday Find: Tales from the Pits Returns to Charleston Wine + Food

Monk: The Tales from the Pit guys returned to their first Charleston Wine + Food in a few years and recapped their barbecue adventures while in town. At the festival they had barbecue bites from Southern Smoke BBQ in Garland, Lawrence Barbecue in Raleigh, Truth BBQ, and 17th Street Barbecue among others.

In addition to the festival events in town they made visits to Scott’s BBQ, McCabe’s in Manning, Hite’s BBQ in West Columbia, Sweatman’s Bar-B-Que in Holly Hill, Palmira BBQ, Rodney Scott’s BBQ, and Lewis Barbecue. I’m hoping to try out Palmira later this month and will report back.


Description: The Charleston Wine + Food festival is an amazing showcase of so many talented chefs and spirits professionals from not just South Carolina but all around the country. We were thrilled to be invited back to cover the event and made the most of our five days in the Lowcountry. 

Tune in to hear about the whole hog road trips we made in between going to festival events, including one of the best bites of whole hog we’ve ever had. We had an awesome time attending the CHSWF events, supporting local Charleston restaurants, and eating old school South Carolina BBQ.
