So, while on my mini-vacay visiting my brother in Charleston, SC he and his wife introduced me to mouth-watering Texas Style BBQ! Yep, I said Texas BBQ in Charleston, SC! check out my video for some behind the scenes and into the pits!
Lewis BBQ was the highlight lunch spot, and we weren’t the only ones dying to enter the gates of BBQ heaven either. The line was wrapping around the building, but it moved super fast. Everybody and their momma wanted some of this stuff.
We sat around our paper mats and dived right into some amazing smoked brisket, beef short ribs, and texas hot guts (housemade sausage)! We also sampled the mac-n-cheese, collard greens, potato salad, and green chile corn pudding. Oh, did I forget to mention, we totally hit up the bar for cocktails and beer.
All the meat was amazing. There’s no doubt about that. The sides were pretty good. I thought the collard greens for a little too sweet for me, however my sisters loved it. The macaroni and cheese was my favorite!
It was an awesome, flavorful lunch and I must say the best BBQ I’ve ever had…. I think Texas BBQ might have won me over that good ol’ carolina style…
After lunch, the Pit Master himself, John Lewis, gave us a tour of his smoke house. Walking into the smokehouse was like walking into the depths of hell.. IT WAS HOT… but the smell was oh so HEAVENLY… There were rows and rows of smokers and tons of meat getting prepared to be devoured by all the BBQ lovers that were waiting in that long line that was beginning to snake around the building.
You can really tell that BBQ is John Lewis’s passion and there’s no question about it, he deserves every honor and award he’s gotten. He’s totally the King of Texas BBQ.
