Moe's Original Bar-B-Que is a Colorado-based chain started by out-of-state transplants: Mike Fernandez, Ben Gilbert and Jeff Kennedy met at the University of Alabama and opened up a carry-out barbecue joint at the base of Vail Mountain during the 2002-03 ski season. That little spot has grown into more than a dozen restaurants across the country, including three in the metro area. The hot-pit meats include pulled pork, smoked chicken, smoked turkey, shrimp, catfish, chicken wings and ribs; the traditional sides (baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad) are supplemented by rotating daily sides-of-the-day specials.
