Above: A table covered with plates of food from Midway BBQ in Buffalo, South Carolina. South Carolina barbecue can consist of everything from ribs to chopped pork, hot dogs covered with coleslaw and is always served with a glass of sweetened ice tea.

Serving everything from pulled pork shoulder to hush puppies and collard greens, the series is a homespun delight that attempts to satisfy the appetites of barbecue lovers everywhere. Host Rick Browne is as quick with his wit as he is with a fork. Author of the travelogue/cookbook "Barbecue America," Browne leads viewers to the smoky heart and soul of barbecue culture. Shot entirely on location, each episode features a different barbecue event, festival, cook-off or restaurant.

In this episode, Rick Browne journeys to the Carolinas for a BBQ and blues contest. Highlights include the Stone House BBQ, and a pig pickin' party at Dan Hunley's, including grilled peaches, whole hog, barbecue hash, streak-o-lean and his pork shoulder with coleslaw.
