Our Story

Meet Randall Knight

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

You can't go wrong with Randall in charge of your events.

“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

Some of the best we tasted

"Just sampled the pulled pork at Festival of Discovery. Some of the best we tasted."

Debbie Harlow

"He cooked a whole pig!"

"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."
