Rodney Scott is the barbecue boss. At eleven-years-old, Rodney cooked his first whole hog, and by high school, he was branding the family business. Rodney’s success started on his small family farm and general store in Hemingway, South Carolina, and he has continued to become the co-founder of one of the 50 Best New Restaurants by Bon Appetit Magazine. Now with two locations in Charleston and Birmingham, and one opening in Atlanta, Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ is THE place for barbecue. Winner of the James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef: Southeast and a featured chef on Netflix’s Chef’s Table: BBQ, Rodney is a legendary pitmaster. He’s also a glass half full kind of guy who radiates positivity—in and out of the pit. Join us on this episode of Live to Eat as we chat about the different types of barbecue, Rodney’s all-American backstory, as well as the secret to his signature sauce, and how to make every day a good day.
