Colorado Tour de Barbecue – Moe’s, Vail

I almost didn’t go to Moe’s while we were in Vail.  Everyone was pretty barbecued out.  I did have some time before meeting the others before lunch, so I stopped in and had a pork sandwich.  I was surprised how good it was.  Moe’s uses a box and cherry wood.  The pork is moist and has some smoke taste, but what really helped was the barbecue sauce and the dill pickle chips.  I was surprised how much difference they made.  It probably helped that the chef, seeing my cap, gave me a Roll Tide, and it was nice that one of the staff was a new arrival from Cullman.  It recalled the taste of Moe’s in Tuscaloosa and Birmingham, and benefited from the memory.  And perhaps it benefited from the knowledge that I was about to leave for Boston, so I was bidding farewell to barbecue for a while.  It was a nice send-off.  Definitely stop in if you go to Vail.
