Here’s a little about where we came from. A friendship formed on a common bond of BBQ, blues, college football and whisky, Mike Fernandez, Ben Gilbert and Jeff Kennedy met at the University of Alabama. Originating in Tuscaloosa, AL in 1988, the seeds for Moe’s Original BBQ were planted when Mike hooked up with Moses Day and began learning the process of fire roasting meats. The talk of Tuscaloosa, Day’s distinct bar-b-que flavor is the foundation Moe’s Alabama recipe is built on. By using fruitwood and hitting the meat with two different sauces, the trio knew they were onto something special. From humble beginnings catering out of a small fire pit, to selling roadside BBQ out of a concession trailer, big things were about to come. Sharing a common love for the mountains, Fernandez, Gilbert and Kennedy eventually would land in Vail, Colorado, refining the Moe’s style.
Soon after arriving in Vail, the three would open a carry out restaurant at Lionshead Village at the base of Vail Mountain. The gang began looking into establishing a place to begin selling whisky. Offering Maker’s Mark by the barrel, Moe’s moved back up the mountain, as well as opened a new joint in Eagle, CO. Once Moe’s Original BBQ had established stores in Lionshead Village in Vail Mountain and the Eagle location, the Bama Boys began to expand to Orange Beach, and Birmingham, Alabama
