Moe’s Original BBQ was founded by three Bama boys: Mike Fernandez from Tuscaloosa, Ben Gilbert from Athens, and Jeff Kennedy from Huntsville. After meeting at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, they instantly became friends and had a mutual interest in all things Southern: BBQ, blues, college football, and whisky.
In 1988, Mike hooked up with Moses Day in Tuscaloosa and began learning to fire roast meats. When Moses fired up his backyard barrel pit, everyone in T-Town knew where to go. The boys were lucky to learn from Moses and his distinct style makes up Moe’s original flavor of BBQ.
The boys loved the mountains and eventually they all landed in Vail, Colorado and refined the cooking skills they had learned. By using fruit wood to smoke the meats and hitting it with two sauces, they knew they had something special. Moe’s Original BBQ smokes all meats fresh daily. Unlike other BBQ joints, they don't stop there. They prepare eight to ten Southern style side dishes and desserts everyday with recipes passed down for generations.
Moe’s Original BBQ is a Southern soul food revival great food is served in an atmosphere that is relaxed, spontaneous, yet civilized….well, sometimes.
