0001 (1) 30x30 I began NARD’S Backyard BBQ at the persuasion of friends and family who urged me to share my talents with others. With a love of cooking and entertaining, I took the name Nard, an old high school nickname, and took my passion on the road. My love of entertaining and cooking brought me to my catering business. My love of BBQ  led me to the BBQ Competition Circuit where I compete in BBQ competitions throughout South Carolina.  It is what I love to do! – Randall Knight, Owner, Pitmaster 16830911_1487474807932329_6612294645899695552_n[2]


“Every single thing I have ever tasted from this man has been spot on! Nard’s knows good BBQ. My fav in the upstate!” – Mike Moore, Buxton Hall Barbeque

“Great food from a very reliable local company at reasonable prices. Perfect.” – Rick Taylor, Lowe’s Food Cart

“Just sampled the pulled pork at Festival of Discovery. Some of the best we tasted.” – Debbie Harlow

“I have tasted some of just about everything he prepares. My favorite is frogmore stew for a catered event. His brisket is fantastic and he makes a mean  Brunswick stew. You can’t go wrong with Randall in charge of your events.” – Janis Hall, Attorney

“He cooked a whole pig!  I am still receiving compliments on how amazing and delicious the food was. He cooked a pig for me on site and displayed it on his cooker with the apple in it’s mouth and everything. It was awesome. He gave me 3 different BBQ sauces and a wide selection of fantastic sides including a fantastic sweet potato crunch.” – Elaine S.FullSizeRenderIMG_6632 (1)
