On December 22, 2013, Rodney Scott and John Haire of Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q served up Scott’s whole hog, barbecue sandwiches right on King Street in Charleston, SC. The weather was an unusually warm 80 degrees for the Sunday before Christmas and the line stretched a city block the entire afternoon. The “Scott’s Bar-B-Que In Exile Tour” was in full swing and folks waited eagerly for up to an hour to pick up a sandwich from the famed pitmaster. The wait might have been long but the music was good and the entertainment of watching Rodney, Steve Green of Conway, SC, and Chef and fellow Fatback Collective member, Sean Brock flip, mop and pull pork was a great way to spend the afternoon.
