In 1925, Bob Gibson served bar-b-q from a makeshift table made of oak planks nailed to a large sycamore tree in his back yard. 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 bar-b-q restaurant tradition that has lasted over 75 years and 4 generations.
This short film is about Big Bob Gibson and how things got started.
