If you’re never had mayonnaise-based Alabama-style barbecue sauce, do yourself a favor and slather some of pitmaster Aaron Siegel’s on his barbecued chicken wings. Cool, creamy, and tangy, it’s the perfect match for the smoky chicken, and it’s almost enough to make a South Carolinian forget that proper barbecue sauce is yellow. Siegel is the “Fiery Ron” behind Home Team BBQ, and he has plenty of the mustard-based stuff, too, because he’s a passionate barbecue ecumenicalist, taking the best of America’s regional barbecue styles and putting his own unique twist on them. At the original West Ashley location, you can gnaw on tender ribs, chicken, and pork while listening to blues and roots rock-centric live music. Out on Sullivan’s Island, there’s smoked turkey and a succulent marinated beef brisket. Siegel gave up a career in fine dining to pursue his passion for slow-smoked meat, and Charleston’s barbecue scene is all the richer for it. —Robert Moss Dish (Winter 2013)
Same great barbecue, but now on Sullivan's too.
