Pitmaster Aaron Siegel is steadily building a barbecue empire. At his original Home Team West Ashley location, you can munch on tender ribs, chicken, and pork while listening to live blues and roots rock-centric music. Meanwhile on Sullivan’s Island, his slightly larger menu includes smoked turkey and barbecue shrimp. The newest location is downtown and features more inspired dishes tucked amongst robust barbecue offerings. Home Team is well known for its Texas-style salt-and-pepper brisket and with the first bite it’s easy to see why. The result of a gut-busting R&D tour through the Lone Star State, it’s some of the best brisket being served in the city today. The fat quite literally melts in your mouth, and the beef itself is seasoned to oh-boy perfection. Siegel’s ribs have also been singled out for particular praise, too, being voted Most Life-Changing Rib by Esquire readers and earning Home Team the designation Best Rib-Sticking Joint in America by Southern Living magazine. However, if it’s your first time at Home Team, you have to order Siegel’s smoked chicken wings paired with the mayonnaise-based Alabama-style barbecue sauce. Cool, creamy, and tangy, it’s the perfect match for the smoky chicken and arguably the best barbecue sauce in town. —Suzanne Cohen (Dish, Summer 2019)
