Grill Master University sat down with two members of the Big Bob Gibson team from Decatur, Alabama. If the name Big Bob Gibson sounds familiar to you, we’re not surprised. It’s one of the oldest and most prestigious barbecue restaurants in the world! Founded in Decatur, Alabama, in 1925 by Bob Gibson, a railroad worker who spent his weekend barbecuing with friends and family over a hand-dug barbecue pit.
Chris Lilly joined the team in 1992, when Bib Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q opened a new location on the south side of Decatur. His wife, Amy, is the great granddaughter of Bob Gibson, and Lilly was excited to join this great barbecue family. His first memory is of barbecue, grilling with his father. He was so young, he couldn’t even peak over the edge of the grill to see what they were grilling! He learned barbecue in the pit room at Big Bob Gibson and he’s honored to be part of this family endeavor.
