The article focuses on Maurice’s Piggie Park in South Carolina, but attempts to connect everything from slavery to the so called “civil rights movement” with barbecue.
The restaurant was started by Maurice Bessinger who was known for flying the confederate flag and keeping politically incorrect items on sale.
