Lewis Barbecue
It seems criminal that what many consider the best barbecue in Charleston—in a state that prides itself in its distinctive pulled pork preparations—comes from a Texas pitmaster, but such is the nature of a global food scene in a thriving culinary city. John Lewis arrived in town with focus and intention, constructing an array of smokers that slow-cook hundreds of pounds of brisket, pork and “hot guts” (sausage) each day. The expansive counter-serve joint accommodates grab-and-go meals or extended feasts, for at least as long as diners can fend off the meat sweats. If you’re indecisive, which is natural at Lewis Barbecue, opt for the El Sancho Loco, a mountain of a sandwich that piles guts, pickled red onions, pulled pork and chopped beef in between two slices that do their best to accommodate the onslaught of sauce and smoky flavor. Regulars know not to miss the green chile corn pudding—it’s a taste of Texas that’s more than welcome in the Lowcountry.
