Forrest Fire BBQ

Forrest Fire BBQ is now open in Coligny Plaza. Developed by local Hilton Head business luminaries JR Richardson and Lee Lucier, alongside pitmaster Scott Bodkin, the counter service restaurant focuses on wood-fired BBQ made in a time-honored tradition. Everything from the brisket to the beans is carefully crafted utilizing the “slow & low” technique, resulting in a mouthwatering menu of Southern favorites. The meat offerings change daily but will regularly include smoked chicken, spare ribs, brisket, and pulled pork. The Fixins’ menu features elevated traditional BBQ sides like mac n cheese topped with housemade cracklin, called “Crack-Mac,” smoked egg salad, collard greens, and housemade pickles using Bodkin’s grandmother’s recipe. On the sweeter side of the menu, Forrest Fire offers delicious yet unconventional items like birthday cake (because why can’t you have it more than once a year), personal pies, and country jello molds with “church potluck vibes.”

Forrest Fire BBQ is located at 1 N Forest Beach Dr, Hilton Head Island in Coligny Plaza next to FISH Casual Coastal Seafood. They are open Tuesday-Sunday from 12:00 pm until they are sold out, or 9:00 pm. They feature a full bar, wine, beer, and a large variety of Bourbons focusing on small-batch producers. Indoor and outdoor seating is available, as well as, carryout and (coming soon) delivery. You can learn more about all of Forrest Fire’s offerings at and on Facebook and Instagram @forrestfirehhi.
