2019 Best of the Boat BBQ: Moe’s Original Bar B Que

Credit the meat and a great staff. Those are the reasons behind Moe’s Original Bar B Que in west Steamboat Springs winning this year’s Best BBQ category.

“We have the greatest staff in the world,” says co-owner Chris Gander. “They believe in the food and treat it and our customers well.”

Offering everything from Platters to Haul-It-Home Packs, Moe’s appeals to lovers of smoked meats and signature southern sides like corn bread, mac and cheese, and baked beans.

But it’s the meats that keep people coming back, including hot-pit smoked meats like pulled pork, chicken, turkey, chicken wings and ribs, as well as catfish, shrimp and mahi mahi. 

“We don’t hide the meat behind our sauce,” Gander says. “We smoke and cook it hot-pit style, quicker and hotter than a lot of other barbecue restaurants, which keeps it fresher.”
