South Carolina Barbeque Roadtrip

Looking for ideas for your next road trip? How about this…  sample all the different types of delicious barbecue there is across America? Come to South Carolina, one of the only places in the nation where you’ll find all four of the basic types of barbecue.

“When you’re talking about barbecue, South Carolina is where you have the diversity,” said Lake High, president of the S.C. Barbecue Association.

Of course, barbecue in South Carolina means pork and only pork. Other things, such as beef and chicken, can be barbecued, but only pork is referred to as barbecue.

The four types of barbecue are distinguished by the sauce used, either basted on during cooking, added after cooking, or both, said High, who has traced the history of barbecue in the state.

It just so happens that I-95 is the perfect roadtrip route to satisfy that barbecue urge that should be hitting you right about now.
