Nominated for: BEST Barbecue
Twenty years into my restaurant career, I decided to open a real barbecue restaurant. With a good buddy, I set off to find out what barbecue was all about. We made a 3,500 mile swing through the barbecue belt - visiting 10 states and over 80 barbecue restaurants. The people were great. We got recipes, tips, techniques, advice, instructions and one heck of a lot of inspiration. Everywhere we stopped we bought an antique chair for Mo's Smokehouse. Also, you'll notice the unique photos of cooks, meat smokers and BBQ joints hanging on the walls at Mo's. These were taken by us on the many stops we made. When we came home we had the greatest recipes for beans, onion rings, coleslaw, pork ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, sweet potato pie - and we knew just the kind of place we wanted. We built Mo's from the floor up, to be the finest barbecue restaurant in the west. So sit back, suck in some of the hickory smoked flavors floating about, order up... and enjoy !!!
