Chris is a barbecue aficionado and I gladly volunteer to try out new BBQ eateries in the Greenville area. Henry’s Smokehouse is the familiar, traditional option. They do well at catering big events and you definitely get your money’s worth. Next, there is Bucky’s. For the trendier set, Moe’s Original Bar B Que in Greenville and Monkey Wrench Smokehouse in Travelers Rest are hipster BBQ options. All have their strong points but our current favorite, albeit pricier, spot is SBH BBQ Co. on Pelham.
The wall of trophies near the front door are a testament to their award winning ways on the competition BBQ circuit.
Ordering is done at the counter and deliver your order to the table. Drinks and a variety of housemade sauces are available at a counter in the back. You can’t go wrong with the sides. Those baked beans with meat, though! Mmmmmm.
The Main Event
Chris usually orders the Full Rib Dinner or the Judge’s Plate (1/4 lb. sliced brisket, 2 ribs, pork medallions, 1 hot link, 1 side and Texas Toast). I like the Brisket Sandwich plate and steal a rib or two off of Chris’ plate. The sandwich is best with the pickled red onions provided on the side.
The ribs deserve their own post. They are perfectly seasoned, fall off the bone entrees with a surprisingly sweet undertone. They run out most days for a reason.
The Mac & Cheese, Fries, Baked Beans have all been solid picks. I am sure we will try all the sides eventually!
Pros and Cons
It is more expensive than places like Henry’s but it is worth it. They sell out of some items so it is best to call ahead. Those are the only cons. Everything else is a plus.
This is our current favorite barbecue spot in the Greenville area. It’s best to call ahead to see if they have run out of meat (especially ribs) but the food is the best we have had locally. According to the owner, they have placed sixth in the world at a major championship. They have an entire wall filled with trophies as well as plaques on the walls testifying to their quality and winning fare. Check them out! You won’t be disappointed.
