I couldn’t leave South Carolina without sampling the barbecue, and one of the best places to do that is at the downtown Charleston location of the eloquently named Swig and Swine restaurant.
I had a choice of five sauces. I tried a bit of each of them, but kept going back to the sweet red.
Here’s what I ordered: A half pound of Beef Brisket and Beans with Brisket as a side, plus a small salad and a large serving of Mac and Cheese. The brisket and the beans with brisket side were extraordinary. I can see why Swig and Swine’s barbecue is rated as the best in Charleston, but I think I’ll have to go back next year to confirm it.
