DECATUR, AL (WAFF) - This is the first installment of WAFF 48's Bobby's Bama.

And what better way to kick it off than taking you inside real "Bama" Bar-B-Q.

No one from the state gets more international attention than Big Bob Gibson's.

Ask any southerner... the way to their heart is through their stomach and nothing fills a stomach better than Bar-B-Q.

Not just any bar-b-q, but fall off the bone, slap your mama pork.

Pit master Chris Lilly established Big Bob Gibson's as the holy grail of bar-b-q.

"Cooking it low and slow locks in the moisture," said Lilly. "You've got moist juicy meat."

Whether it's chopped, stirred, slathered or piled, customers say they'll squeal for this real hickory deal

"The friendly service and the food's delicious," said customer Sue Kitchens.

With all the magazine articles and national attention, this little piggy's going global.

"I'm going to Miami for the Southeast wine and food festival," said Lilly. "New York for the Big bar-b-q block party."

Chris says it's a southern thing to feed the masses, have fun and enjoy your family and friends.

That truly is in the spirit of bobby's Bama.
