Po' Pigs Bo-B-Q... bad name, good eatin'

I like to take the ol' lady someplace nice on Friday nights, so this evening we had the buffet at Po' Pigs on Knox Abbott Road, on my side of the Congaree. Not too shabby! The pulled pork itself is good, a little more shredded than at most places. That made it easy for our little Petunia, with five teeth in her whole head, to eat it.

There's four sauces to choose from: Carolina Red, Midlands Mustard, Pee Dee Pepper, and Orangeburg Sweet. The buffet bar has plenty of veggies, and some odds and ends such as rutebaga and liver hash. If anyone out there tries the liver hash, please let us know how it is.

Anyway, don't be turned off by the lame name. We were serenaded during supper by one of the cooks, who knew a fair portion of the words to "Old Timey Rock and Roll," but did not advance to the next round. By the way, it was $17.98 for two dinners with drinks. Fun place.

I have had the hash at the Edisto Po'Pigs and I would say its pretty good. I am not exactly sure when the Columbia local opened but I am sure the spread is the same. It is always worth my while to stop by when at Edisto. We call the Po' Pigs at Edisto "Bo Bo's" after the man who runs it and I would say that you can't go wrong with anything they serve....the mac and cheese is not that great, but thats the exception.

This is a great blog by the way. I found my way here from Laurinline but feel at home, if I only have two passions they are most certainly barbecue and politics.

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the quality of Po Pigs, I like the eastern NC-style sauce myself there. Sides less impressive but the cue itself was nicely moist and flavorful. We're off to Charleston today and hoping to try Sweatman's for the first time tomorrow. (we're recent transplants to SC, but I grew up in NC so I know cue and have converted my yankee wife to cue worship).

Fantastic that you have this blog. I'll be visiting it a lot. Best wishes.

I was the singing cook...I miss food there. We made some darn fine BBQ.
