The fires glow bright in the Carolinas. Roger visits Skylight Inn, a family-run restaurant in Ayden, N.C., that has been serving whole hog-style barbecue for 65 years. In Greer, S.C., five friends create an extravagant two-day, meat-filled feast called "Bovinova, Barn Yard Burn." Six hundred hungry barbecue lovers come for the surf and turf paella, roasted chickens, roasted lamb, pigs and the main attraction, a whole roasted cow!

It's a trip to Charleston, S. C. to visit the Big Red Rig, a bright red, double-decker, thirty-foot trailer tricked out with two massive smokers cooking traditional pulled pork, ribs and chicken for barbecue competitions across the country. Then, Roger is off to Columbia, S. C. to visit Bone-In Artisan BBQ, a hugely popular food truck that pushes the limits on taste, technique, and the definition of South Carolina-style barbecue.
