Rodney Scott’s Chef’s Table: BBQ Journey

Growing up as an only child in the Pee Dee area of South Carolina, Rodney was accustomed to the ins and outs of a barbecue restaurant from a very young age. He began frequenting his parents’ barbecuing business, Scott’s Variety Store + Bar-B-Q, in South Carolina at the age of eleven. Having picked up unique skills along the way, the pitmaster consistently grew as an experiential cook. From understanding the nuances of flavor to contributing to his family’s expansive business full-time, Rodney’s involvement with barbecue could be traced to his childhood.

Striving for excellence, the series zeroed in on the intersectional activities the chef participated in to give his business a headstart. Rodney discussed the relativity of hogs in the South in the past and how they were an inexpensive source of food and protein. While cooking hogs slowly became a tradition in South Carolina, Rodney and his family decided to use the encompassing farms and fauna to make their cooking process easier. Slowly, he managed to grow his skills as an individual and also create a lasting impact on their family business.

As such, fans and customers can order food from their locations in Atlanta, Trussville, Homewood, Birmingham, and Charleston. Besides creating a renowned brand, Rodney is famous for his traditional whole-hog barbecue and the flavors he manages to bring out on hardwood coals.
