It’s been a great summer here at Barbecue & Politics.

We’ve taken a look at the thing South Carolina does better than any other state … From Springfield to Garden City, Gervais has taken it upon himself to ingest vast quantities of succulent, sauce-soaked South Carolina barbecue … and let you know what I’ve found. And some readers have returned the favor, which I greatly appreciate. (Burp.)

We’ve also lifted the bun on the other thing that Sandlappers are passionate about… good old-fashioned, homegrown, pick up the cell phone and threaten to kill your estranged wife’s boyfriend, resign and take a job with the payday lenders, 90% funding from the out-of-state voucher lobby politics. Okay, so it doesn’t seem so old-fashioned and homegrown when I put it that way.

But as the summer winds down, so too must the blogging.

And here, to tide you over until the next Barbecue Season, are some pics from one of my new favorites, Kelly’s BBQ, located in "Flowertown," SC. (That's Summerville on the highway map.)

Kelly’s is a real-deal southern barbecue buffet with all the goods. You can fix your paper plate with cabbage casserole, pickled okra, fried okra, and even breakfast casserole -- next to the fried chicken, prehistoric-sized collard greens, and spice-infused pulled pork. And you can do it in a down-home atmosphere with plastic-ware, dining hall style know-your-neighbor seating and washtub lamps hangin’ down from the ceiling.

So if you need me, that’s where you can find me: at Kelly’s, and dozens of other unique 'cue joints around the Palmetto State, eating good barbecue with nice folks. And you can always hit me up with an email at gervaissbridges @

Take care!

Gervais, you're such a tease...

Please gear back up in time for the prez primaries...with all these candidates coming in town, they deserve to know where to get the best 'cue here in SC.

How come I just now found you! I love some BBQ. Can't wait to read your whole hog, er, blog.

Surely you should extend your blogging season!

I just found your blog but I already know that only silly SC political doings outnumber great bbq sources in the Sandlapper State.

I heard there was a Presidential Primary coming to SC.

I came here expecting to hear about Fred Thompson and his proclivity for BBQ.

But noooo there's an absent blogger.
