Where to eat Barbecue while driving from Ashville to Charleston

My husband and i will be on a road trip, we are driving from Nashville to Asheville and heading down to Charleston. I think we will drive down the 26 through Spartanburg and Columbia. I am looking at the southern foodways BBQ map and the North carolina and South Carolina bbq maps. We will also end up staying in charleston for 3 days maybe. We'd like to try a mix of classic low country cooking, bbq, seafood restaurants and the modern ones like Husk, Onion glass.

    1. The two that come to mind are Hite's in West Columbia and Sweatman's in Holly Hill. While I don't personally like Sweatman's that much, I don't mind others stopping by for what many believe is a South Carolina icon. Heck, I find myself there every couple of years or so. We don't mind Hite's too much. Very basic & take-out only, but usually not too bad. For what we usually get here in SC it's a pretty good representation of the mustard style.

      Having experienced a Palmetto Pig in another area besides Columbia, I would not give them the time of day.

      We have always heard really good things about Little pigs, but we've never been. I'd like to, though.
