Scott's BBQ was started 1962 in by B.E. Scott until his father Ricky Parker purchased it from B.E. and then passed onto Zach in 2013. This is great because Zach explains the whole process of his business, how to order(tell them what meat you want, sauce you want, slaw you want (vinegar or may based) and they try to make it exactly to your liking), what his favorite order is. He explains middling and some cool special things to order you wouldn't think of. We talk about what it was like growing up in the business and what he had always dreamed about as a kid.

There is a whole lot of whole hog talk. He goes through 20-25 whole hogs a week and they take 24 hours to cook. We talk about how he wants to give back to the community right now in people's time of need and talks about how the community reached out to him after his father passed and he took over the business immediately.

We mention Elliott Moss from Buxton Hall Barbecue, Pat Martin from Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint, and Carey Bringle from Peg Leg Porker. AND the myth is true about the tennis shoes.

BONUS: Zach explains where he goes for sushi.
