GOING WHOLE HOG AT PALMETTO BLUFF'S
MUSIC TO YOUR MOUTH
Rodney Scott hardly slept a wink at Palmetto Bluff’s sixth helping of the Music to Your Mouth foodie festival this past November—at least not on Thursday night. That’s because he was cooking up an entire hog for Music to Your Mouth. Scott and many other chefs and attendees were also going whole hog for three or more days and nights of tasty Lowcountry food, beverages, and music on the banks of the May River.
“It’s like a big family reunion in your own little world,” says Scott, who runs Scott’s Bar-B-Que in the South Carolina crossroads town of Hemingway for his day—and night—job.
Scott was preparing a Fatback Pork Project mixed breed pig (Mangalista and Berkshire) to be served at Friday night’s riverfront Potlikker Block Party. He was joined by a long list of other southern chef luminaries that have made Music to Your Mouth a word-of-mouth favorite in chef circles.
