A group of state senators wants to declare barbecue the Official State Picnic Cuisine of South Carolina.
The bill was introduced in the Senate on Wednesday, March 19 and referred to the Judiciary committee. It's sponsored by a bipartisan group of senators, including Katrina Shealy (R-Lexington) and Thomas McElveen (D-Sumter).
South Carolina already has an official state snack food (boiled peanuts), a state vegetable (collards) and a state fruit (the peach). It has a state beverage (milk) and a state hospitality beverage (sweet tea).
State House reporter and Free Times barbecue expert Porter Barron Jr. is already complaining about some of the language in the bill. For example, the bill says South Carolina "is the only state where one can find all four barbecue finishing sauces: vinegar and pepper, mustard, light tomato, and heavy tomato" — "as though there are only four," Barron says.
