Does Schoolhouse have the best BBQ in South Carolina?
Of course, we all love BBQ, and we all know that not all BBQ’s are created the same. And if you’re a lover of that savory pile of meat, you might like a tangy vinegar-based BBQ or you might prefer it to be sweet and savory. Here in South Carolina, we love BBQ regardless of how it’s made. And as long as the meat is tender, full of flavor, and juicy, we will enjoy it. So, it’s hard to choose the best BBQ in South Carolina, but there are a few restaurants that stand out. By far, Schoolhouse BBQ has one of the best vinegar-based BBQ in South Carolina and so does Lewis Barbecue located in Charleston. Lewis’ vinegar sauce is used on their pulled pork sandwich, and it is tangy and full of flavor. If you don’t enjoy tangy BBQ sauce, then Lewis also uses traditional sauces as well. And here’s an article about a general store that also has some of the most delicious BBQ in South Carolina.
