Pitmaster Rodney Scott and crew are thisclose to opening his whole hog barbecue restaurant in North Central (1011 King St.), and Charleston has almost reached full pulled pork frenzy. In the middle of inspections and cleaning, Scott allowed Eater photographer j. kevin foltz to poke around the interiors. While not much has changed from the former Chick’s Fry House dining room, there is one big addition — Scott, himself, the man, the myth, the legend — and those giant pits out back. Take a quick tour around here, and ignore the mess, it is after all, a restaurant trying to get off the ground any day now.
For updates on the opening, keep an eye here and be ready to hop in the car to line up for the hog that put Hemingway, South Carolina on the map. The only question is how many pounds of pulled pork, ribs, chicken bog, and banana pudding can one person handle in the first week?
