This is an event you won’t want to miss. On Sunday February 9th, Ryan Farr of 4505 Meats, along with Caleb Zigas of La Cocina, will be hosting a whole hog party for barbecue pitmaster Rodney Scott. Here’s the story: Scott runs Scott’s BBQ in Hemingway, South Carolina, and tragically lost his pit in a fire in November 2013. Fatback Collective is sponsoring a Southern tour to help raise the $100,000 Scott needs to bring his joint up to code, and the San Francisco party is part of that effort.
The party will be in the parking lot of the future home of 4505 Meats, and also includes an online auction. The event is 11am-2pm, and tickets are $20 in advance for a plate of meat and sides (or you can chip in a little more) or $25 at the door. And be sure to check out the fantastic video of Rodney Scott and his story right here. 702 Divisadero St. at Grove.
