At Maurice’s Piggie Park, our passion is to serve gourmet pit-cooked BBQ in our own authentic South Carolina style with exceptional quick service, in a friendly, family atmosphere.
Our barbequed meats are smoked naturally with local 100% hickory and oak wood in a one-of-a-kind barbecue pit that operates 24 hours a day. We take pride in being a second and third generation family-run business and one of the few remaining bbq joints to never use gas or electric heat to cook our barbeque. Every day, hundreds of pounds of meat are cooked for hours on our centrally located bbq pits for a consistent flavor and delivered to our convenient restaurant locations. We also give special attention to our Hamburgers, made every day with fresh ground, hand-pattied beef for a perfect cooked-to-order burger.
We take just as much care with our side dishes as we do with our meat. Hash is our most popular comfort food made with high quality ingredients and our secret family recipe; after one taste, you’ll be hooked! Cole Slaw and Potato Salad are homemade fresh each day with quality local produce. BBQ Baked Beans are slow cooked with our signature Southern Gold® sauce and chunks of smoked meat. And don't miss your chance to taste the best Onion Rings around, fried fresh to order with local Adluh mill flour. Banana Pudding is one of our favorite dessert recipes, the perfect finish to a BBQ meal. After preparing all this, we still find time to squeeze hundreds of lemons a day for a popular choice of all-natural Fresh Squeezed Lemonade.
Our customers are the most important ingredient to our success and we consider them friends. We welcome each and every customer with true southern hospitality. Our desire is for every customer to leave with a full stomach and a smile on their face, as we holler “Y’all Come Back!”
Piggie Park offers a quality catering service, with our family and staff serving businesses, churches, parties and special occasions with 30 to 5,000 guests, with our everyday favorites, fancy finger foods or buffet dinner menu with spectacular service from our family. For many decades, we’ve believed in supporting local businesses and using quality local ingredients including South Carolina meats, produce from the local farmer’s market, and locally milled Adluh flour. We love our South Carolina roots and work hard to give back to our community – we appreciate all y’all!

Rachel Bell is one of our Piggie Park staff members who has worked in our office for several years. Several months ago, Rachel was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). IPF is a disease in which tissue deep in the lungs becomes thick and stiff, or scarred over time. The formation of scar tissue is called fibrosis. As the tissue thickens, the lungs cannot properly move oxygen into the blood stream, thus the blood become starved for oxygen. There is no cure for IPF. A double lung transplant is Rachel’s only hope.
While a lung transplant is not a cure, it will buy Rachel, who is 41 years old, more time to spend with her three children and husband. Her children are her life. Rachel’s daughter Lela is 17, her son Frankie is 14, and her son Brandon is 25. Rachel looks forward to being part of their lives for many more years. Rachel would like to watch her children get married and have children of their own. Without a transplant, this will not be possible as those diagnosed with IPF are only given 2–5 years to live.
Transplants are life-saving, but financially draining. Even with insurance, Rachel is facing very high expenses including relocation for 12 months to be closer to Duke Hospital, post-transplant medications of up to $4,000/month, co-pays, lab fees, and more.
To help with the financial burden of Rachel’s uninsured expenses, a fundraising campaign in her honor has been established with Help Hope Live, a trusted nonprofit organization that has been providing community-based fundraising guidance to patients and their families for more than 30 years. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law, are held by Help Hope Live in the South-Atlantic Lung Transplant Fund, and are administered for transplant-related expenses only.
