The local team barbecue to light up the smokers at a new restaurant in Mount Pleasant next year


BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCBD) – A new option for delicious barbecue is coming to the town of Mount Pleasant.

Home Team BBQ announced plans on Wednesday to bring their ‘smoked meats and good vibes’ to former Rusty Rudder location on Highway 17 North.

The owners said they were looking forward to lighting up the smokers and sharing a barbecue in Mount Pleasant.

“The property feels like Home Team to us. We love rehabilitating an old school and this place already looks like an old barbecue shack,” the restaurant said in a Facebook post.

The renovation will be designed by Jenny Keenan Designs, Mcginnis Leathers and the four operating partners (Aaron Siegel, Taylor Garrigan, Sean Daniher and Tony Mckie).

They said the character of the new property is in the extra-large outdoor space that will serve as an open-air courtyard and provide a home-like atmosphere. Home Team BBQ plans to use the space for “game day with lots of TVs, oyster roasts, charity events and just a great hangout space for families and friends,” Aaron Siegel said.

Home Team BBQ is now hiring managers for the new restaurant – they will train at other locations first until the new store opens in 2022.
