I really liked one chef Steven Greene in Greenville and often ate there. We we close but he moved on. Because of that brief friendship I was told that I could no longer post about the entire restaurant group. Which was probably great for the one place that I thought sucked. I have never taken food for free and I tip what some say is well. Is there another place out there like chowhound I can go to?

It is getting tot he post where often I am getting for removed for being a friend of the restaurant. I recently got this one "Hi, JB,
We've previously emailed you about posting about places where you're not just an anonymous diner, and it seems like Seven Sows is one of those places where you're a friend of the house.
Can we ask that you take a look at our guidelines for insiders ( http://www.chow.com/faq#insiders ) and remember to stick to factual posts when talking about those businesses.
We know that with your event you're probably making a lot of friends in the industry, and we understand this restriction can be limiting, but we really think it's best when the opinions on Chowhound come from ordinary diners, rather than friends of the restaurant.
Thanks,
Jacq" I had met this Chef 2 maybe 3 times personally. I meet almost ever chef where I eat from fine dining to hot dog carts. It is who I am.

I do A LOT research on this site but it is becoming to combersome to deal with. Am I the only only one having this problem? I am scared to even answer questions that people ask me.

I may just go somewhere else. But where?

Sweatman's Bar-B-Que, Holly Hill, SC

I was raised on BBQ in that area. I used to jog to Sweatmans (4miles) eat and jog back. That is really the first type of BBQ in SC. Whole animal cooked then stripped and mixed up. I was 33 years old before I learned that BBQ joints only cook butts. It is really the only way IMO to be able to taste the whole pig. I'm glad it was good.

Don't go to early. But early enough for some pig skins as they will run out. There are very few places in SC where WHOLE HOG BBQ is done.

Rotisserie COW question.

This is how I prefer to do my goats.

WEBER GAS CONVERSION KIT

I went to youtube did a search for converting propane to natural gas and learned how to drill out the orifice. It took almost no time and work liked a charm with no problems.

I'm not trying to resurrect a board but just notifying you that I have ordered it and it is being built.

I like serving stuff with fresh made tortillas. We have a place local that makes them in volume and are really good.
