Moe’s originated with meats roasted on the grill at the doublewide of one of its founders. The operation grew to a gooseneck hay trailer, slinging barbecue in Vail, Colo. Today, the setup of each location reflects its community, from carryout only to a full-service restaurant and bar with a bowling alley. Its 50th unit opened this year in Jackson Hole, Wyo.
