Thin Que Line, Game Day BBQ

Helena V Berbie

Joey Guffey at Thin-Que-Line in Inman and Bruce Clark at Game Day BBQ in Duncan are both relatively new to owning restaurants, but both are familiar faces in the area.

Clark served as head football coach and athletic director at Boiling Springs High School after a long coaching career in North Carolina. Guffey was a law enforcement officer for more than 20 years, most recently as an investigator with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office.

Now, the two are becoming major players in the area’s barbecue community.

Both Clark and Guffey have been cooking for quite a while, with the transition to cooking barbecue a logical extension.

“I learned how to do it when I was in scouting,” Clark said. “I was an Eagle Scout, and absolutely loved being outside and using the wood, and I just loved it. I think I was pretty good back then. I got into coaching, and coaching takes up all your time. I was into grilling at home, but then I got a cooker. It was gas, and I tried to figure out nine million ways to make gas taste like wood, and it just doesn’t happen.”
