And A Dream:
Our Team Serving Yours Since 2006

Our Story: In 2006, with little in his pocket, much support from friends and family, and a “white tablecloth” culinary background, Aaron Siegel turned Bunch’s mid 1900’s gas station into a fun neighborhood barbecue joint in Charleston, SC – the first Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ. Many long days, worn hands, money spent, money earned, and years later, Siegel, his partners, and his “Home Team” have established several restaurants in the Charleston area, one in Aspen, CO, and a booming catering business. They owe a lot to the support of their friends and family and the community they serve, and are extremely proud of what they have accomplished so far, continuing to work hard each day at growth in their abilities.

Our Craft: Experimentation is one of the best things about the culinary world, and is exactly what drives the “home team” in the kitchen. The culinary concept of Home Team BBQ is to create a fusion of fundamentals and traditional processes with the slow-cooked meats and comfort food of the South. With a side of welcoming hospitality, elevated, but still approachable, multi-regional barbecue is paired with a wide-ranging bar offering highlighted by an expansive American whiskey selection, fun frozen cocktails, and a broad variety of craft beer. With all things, our philosophy is to keep it local, and make it fresh.

Our Team: At the heart of the company, however, is our team. This includes our family, friends, staff, and community which have proven to be integral parts of what we do. One of Home Team BBQ’s most important goals when we began our journey in 2006, was not only to create a great experience and send guests home happy after each visit, but also to provide opportunities for our loyal staff and give back to the local community that continues to support them.
