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. 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. They serve great food in an atmosphere that is relaxed, spontaneous, yet civilized….well, sometimes
About Moe's Orange Beach
Hurricane Ivan in 2004 followed by Katrina and Wilma in 2005 destroyed most of lower Alabama. We had always had our eye on the BBQ beach shack. We partnered up with Mark “Pinto” White to test the BBQ waters of Alabama and it turned out to be a success! Gazing out into the Gulf of Mexico, this is truly a country kitchen. There is inside seating for 40 and an additional 20 outside on the deck. All smoking is done on homemade barrel pits which are rolled into the attached smokehouse. We also feature live music in the backyard when weather permits
