Larry the Cable Guy
visited South Carolina recently to learn all about hogs and barbecue. You can check out his visit Tuesday night on “Larry & the Superpig” at 9 p.m. on the History Channel’s “Only in America.”
Larry, who is reported to be a super nice guy, visited Caw Caw Creek in St. Matthews
and a barbecue with Dan "the pig man" Huntley
Emile DeFelice, owner of Caw Caw Creek
, said about 16 hours of filming for the show was done last June.
On the show, Larry visits places across the country to present the nation’s history in a slightly different way.
While Larry is known for his stand-up comedy routine and the History Channel show, he's best known as the fun-loving tow truck Mater in the Disney movies Cars and Cars 2.
At Caw Caw Creek, free-roaming, heirloom pigs are raised in pastures and forests. The farm’s name shows up on menus at fine restaurants across the countries.
Huntley, a former South Carolina-based columnist at The Charlotte Observer, was an owner and chef at Smoke in Blythewood. He is a master barbecue chef who cooks out of his river house on the Catawba and a very popular food truck. If you get an invitation to his place, by all means take it!
