Big Bob Gibson's Bar-B-Q

Decatur

For four generations, Big Bob Gibson has been cooking up famous mouthwatering slow-cooked meats and nationally award-winning sauces. Deemed by barbecue connoisseurs and readers of the Birmingham News as the "Best Barbecue Restaurant in Alabama," Gibson's offers a championship red sauce, flavorful Alabama Red, Fiery Habanero Red and a tangy original white sauce and others that are guaranteed to tantalize the taste buds. The restaurant has a loyal following that includes housewives, factory workers, truck drivers, doctors, lawyers, teachers and others. The great-grandson-in-law of legendary Alabama pit-master Big Bob Gibson, Decatur’s Chris Lilly has made a name for himself among barbecue's elite. Now the executive chef for Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q restaurants and head of the Big Bob Gibson Competition Cooking Team, Lilly is also the corporate spokesperson for Kingsford charcoal and author of Big Bob Gibson’s BBQ Book. Under Lilly's leadership, the competition team has won multiple state championship cook-offs, more than 10 world championships and has taken the Best Sauce title at the American Royal International Barbecue Sauce Contest. In 2011, Lilly's team was crowned World Champion at the annual Memphis in May competition.
