Moe’s Original Bar B Que was founded by three Alabama boys: Ben Gilbert from Athens, Mike Fernandez from Tuscaloosa, 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.
Moe’s Original BBQ is a Southern soul food revival where great food is served in an atmosphere that is relaxed, spontaneous, yet civilized….well, sometimes.
About: Moe's Big Sky
After successfully opening a Moe’s Original BBQ location in his hometown in Alabama, Tyler followed his love of the mountains to Montana and brought with him a taste of the southern soul food revival that Moe’s Original BBQ is known for. The Moe’s Original BBQ location is nestled in the town center of Big Sky. Easily accessible for lunch or dinner after a day on the mountain or river. Moe’s Big Sky offers a full menu - award-winning Bama-style BBQ, traditional Southern sides and tasty desserts which are all served fresh daily from recipes passed down for generations - as well as a full bar. When asked what drew him to Big Sky, Tyler said, “we have everything all in our backyard – rivers and mountains, skiing, fishing, hiking, biking and Yellowstone… that’s why I love it.”
