The Best Hash Around

Hash (on rice) is the star side-dish at barbecue parlors throughout South Carolina. A byproduct of whole-hog cookery, it is made mostly from viscera and can vary from soup-loose to stew-chunky. It delivers intense barbecue flavor, but beyond that dreamy duet of swine and smoke, it can vary from relish-sweet to savagely peppery. True BBQ of Columbia claims to serve the world’s best, which is a boast we wouldn’t debate; but the great cauldrons of hash made at Hite’s Bar-B-Que and the Red Shed Diner & Produce (both available weekends only) belong in the Pantheon, too. Freeman’s Bar-B-Q version is butter-rich; the hash at Maurice’s Piggy Park is dramatically smoky.
