Yet, despite all the passion it arouses, the debate really isn't even about barbecue, said Chuck Kovacik, a professor in USC's Department of Geography and author of the "Barbecue Map of South Carolina."
"This will never be about barbecue.The passion is about place.Wherever I'm from, it's obviously the best. ... You're not arguing about the quality of the barbecue.You're arguing about the quality of the place," he said.
The owners of local barbecue restaurants agree barbecue is about much more than food.
...
In South Carolina, there are at least four barbecue regions, Kovacik said.
"The (barbecue) debate is even greater here than what we've been led to believe by our neighbors to the north," he said.
"You hear so much about North Carolina barbecue. æ.æ.æ.They like to say that North Carolina is a valley of humility between two mountains of conceit.When it comes to barbecue, North Carolina is an incredible mountain of conceit."
In South Carolina, vinegar-and-pepper sauces are popular in the northeastern corner of the state.In the Upstate along the border with North Carolina, tomato-based sauce combining sweet and sour flavors is the standard, while along the western border with Georgia, ketchup-like sauces reign.

Charles Kovacik, a USC geography professor and co-author of "South Carolina: The Making of a Landscape," said he was perplexed by the 12-member vendor list when he first saw it.
He's eaten in more than 100 barbecue establishments across the state, and very few made the inaugural list.Kovacik said even his neighbors noticed, asking him about it during the past few days.
"South Carolina has got this rich tradition of barbecue restaurants, and people here argue about it until they're blue in the face," Kovacik said."I never heard anybody argue about Black Jack Barbecue, Charleston Bay, Sticky Fingers - that's not a serious barbecue restaurant."
Turns out that owners of some of the state's barbecue spots that didn't make the list had similar thoughts - as did their customers.
Now in the third generation of selling barbecue, for example, various Dukes family members run restaurants in Orangeburg, Elloree, Beaufort, Blackville, Ridgeville, Summerville, Charleston and West Columbia.
