The 2nd Annual LowCountry Habitat For Humanity Hog Roast

Learn about the High On The Hog BBQ Festival in Beaufort, SC.

On a recent road trip to Hunting Island State Park, Silke and I literally stumbled upon a Barbecue hog roast that was taking place right at the Whitehall Plantation on Lady’s Island, Beaufort, SC. There’s something about the words ‘hog roast’ and ‘Barbecue’, that when put together in a sentence your mouth begins to water. Without hesitation we pulled in to investigate, fill our stomachs and feed our souls.

BBQ Festival and Fundraiser

This was an annual event put on by the ‘LowCountry Habitat for Humanity’. I’ve volunteered for the Habitat for Humanity chapter back in Minnesota so I was familiar with the work that they do, as well as what a valuable asset they are to a community.

Around 27 different participating BBQ cookers were all lined up and ready to serve you samples of pulled pork or a rib.

You couldn’t help but be pulled into the little encampment with it’s many aromas and so much good food to choose from. We slowly made our way around the perimeter always comparing notes on favorites and ones we should go back to. Going back would have to wait. With so much to sample, why fill up on just one style of BBQ?

It was a beautiful day weather wise and everyone was enjoying the food as well as the live band at the festival.

The Groovetones provided some blue band music that fit perfectly with the event. With our stomachs filled we made our way back to the car to continue onto our original destination. I guess fate falls in our favor from time to time.
