Blue Oak BBQ is brought to you by New Orleans-natives Ronnie Evans and Philip Moseley, who set out to become New Orleans’ foremost purveyors of fine smoked meats and savory sauces. The duo formed Blue Oak in 2012 when Evans and Moseley decided to start smoking meats in a small pop-up inside of the Uptown New Orleans dive bar, Grits. While at Grits, Evans and Moseley gained a cult following for their late-night bar fare and barbecue. In 2014, the duo expanded and transitioned to a new location inside Chickie Wah-Wah where they served full time and focused on developing and perfecting their barbecue. Four years and thousands of pounds of meats later, the duo graduated to their own brick-and-mortar location in 2016 at 900 N. Carrollton Ave in Mid-City. Since opening, the duo has made a name for themselves serving up some of the city’s finest smoked meats, sides, and sandwiches. Now, with a Hogs for the Cause Championship under their belts, the Blue Oak team continues to pave the way for carnivorous excellence in New Orleans. Come visit! You will not be disappointed.
