Widely recognized as one of the oldest and most prestigious barbecue restaurants in the world, Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q was founded in Decatur, AL in 1925. Over five generations of pitmasters & 90+ years of barbecuing, they've earned 15 World BBQ Championships (Pork, Brisket, Ribs, Chicken) and 5 Memphis in May World BBQ Grand Championships. Also known as "Home of the Original BBQ White Sauce", BBG's is now shipping their legendary smoked meats and sauces straight to barbecue lovers nationwide.

About the Food

You don't get to be 5-time Grand World BBQ Champions at Memphis in May by accident. Over 90 years and four generations of low and slow cooking with the finest meats seasoned and sauced to mouth-watering perfection is how it's done. Big Bob Gibson's award-winning pulled pork, tender juicy brisket, BBQ ribs, smoked turkey, Brunswick stew, and whole smoked chickens doused in their legendary white sauce are as good as barbecue gets...period. If you can't get to Decatur, Alabama to enjoy their World Championship Bar-B-Q any time soon, go ahead and order a spread for your next occasion. It'll be a feast you and your guests won't forget.

Meet the Owner

In 1925, Bob Gibson served barbecue from a makeshift table made of oak planks nailed to a large sycamore tree in his backyard. Fresh out of his hand-dug pit came smoke and smells that drew people from miles away. Weighing 300 pounds with a 6’4” frame, it was easy to see why friends and other railway workers called him Big Bob. “Your future is not in the railroad, but in Bar-B-Q”, said Roslyn Mitchell. It was with that, Big Bob Gibson started a family barbecue restaurant tradition that has lasted over 90 years and 4 generations. Today, Bob's great granddaughter Amy and her husband, award-winning pit master and cookbook author Chris Lilly carry on the tradition proudly, serving up their world championship barbecue to enthusiasts throughout the region, and now, from coast to coast.
