This is how you make barbecue! Dude works HARD for a livin', but that's some fine lookin' 'que! Bucket list for sure.

This a two year old video. Not sure how (or IF) he manages to run both this place and the fancy place in Charleston.

I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    this guy changed my bbq life in a parking lot in Houston TX. Only got 2 bites but it was enough. I'm a huge fan.

    great video! I can tell you that we we saw him at Southern Smoke in Houston, he was the hardest working pitmaster in the bunch. Everyone else had these awesome pits and Rodney had his burn barrel, and and open pit with wire mesh on top. He was shoveling his own coals, mopping, flipping, all of it. He didn't have time to talk to anyone when they started serving- he was working that pit like rented mule. Mad respect and killer bbq. He is where I learned it's all about the vinegar with pork. So subtle but such a big part of it.

    After watching this, I'm guessing Southern Smoke was like a vacation for him! :)  

    I've never mopped a pork butt, just rub, set it on the grid and come back when it's done. Rodney pokes and prods, seasons and mops while it's cooking. Think I'll try that next time.

    I've had more than two bite, but I am not to proud to get in line twice.

    Also, the way he built a cinder block pit in that parking lot inspired the lamb pit at BCI (though those results did not stand up to the inspiration).

    I've eaten his away game hog.. Now I need to see his home game game.

    The guy that was helping him is a local BBQ guy, Patrick Feges.  He and his wife recently opened their own place in Greenway Plaza (Houston), and he does a great job (also a vet, FWIW).

    Showing my state a little love today I see ;)  My brother is a moper actually. He makes a vinegar based mix and mops probably about every hour on his. Its good for that style of Que. Its all good.

    Had the pleasure of sharing a few drinks with a Rodney at an event in South Carolina a few years ago, after all the food was served. Great guy and his biggest piece of advice to improve your ‘que was to cook for people that’ll give you honest feedback and don’t be afraid of the heat...the man is definitely bbq royalty.

    That video is great.  That's only 8 hours from me, and I wanna jump in the car right now!
