Low Country Cookouts

Roger's in charming South Carolina for two spectacular low country cookouts: a traditional backyard pig pickin' and a classic oyster roast. In the seaside town of Beaufort, Roger meets Jim Gibson who has been doing pig pickin's for family and friends for the last 40 years. Roger and Jim build the outdoor pit, smoke a whole pig and then chop and serve it with the traditional side of hash and rice. It's the ultimate lowcountry backyard barbecue. Just 20 minutes south of downtown Charleston is a 14-acre peninsula called Bowen's Island and the only thing on it is a restaurant that specializes in low country cooking. The specialty here is oysters steamed over a wood fire. Roger meets Robert Barber who is the owner of the restaurant and the island, and together they build an impressive fire to cook a massive pile of local cluster oysters.
