Green Beans 3.0
Mac and Cheese 3.5
Baked Beans 3.25
Light Pulled Pork 4.0
Dark Pulled Pork 5.0 (The best I have ever had)
Banana Pudding 3.25
Sweet and Dill Pickles, Bread, Sweet and Unsweetened Tea
Mustard BBQ Sauce 4.75
Tomato BBQ Sauce 4.0

The dark pulled pork is the essence of all that is good and wondrous about the pig. It has lots of delicious bark, tender, big chunks of meat, wonderful flavor without sauce, and an amazing mouthfeel caused by the breakdown of fat and connective tissue. I believe they are open now, I may not finish this post before I have to go get some!
Kari had the chicken platter and enjoyed it, but she should have had the buffet. She gave it a 3.0
I admit that I am a transplanted Yankee who only "discovered" Barbecue 12 years ago, but I attest that, to me, Sweatman's is the best I've had, and I've had a lot! It is worth the trip to get this food! Stop in at Beidler Forest for a good swamp walk if you need another excuse to get to this particular middle of nowhere.
