Maurice's Piggy Park, Columbia SC

From the WaPo: A barbecue case that helped the cause of civil rights -- although this story is worthy of more than the paltry 322 words given here.

Back to the author, Jim Shahin, in another piece for the Washington Post: he declares Charleston as 'the future of barbecue.'
