Big Moe Cason was born, raised, and corn fed out of Des Moines, Iowa. It wasn’t an easy life, but a lot of love, optimism, and some killer brisket pulled the family through. “I have a very large family,” reminisces Moe. “My mother had only my sister and me, but my grandmother had seventeen children. She was an outstanding cook; everything she made was from scratch … pies, cakes. She was an old school southern woman and she was really poor, but she made magic out of little or nothing. She taught my mother how to cook, and my mother taught me. We always cooked around the house, and we did a lot of grilling. About the time I turned ten my mom handed me the grilling duties at camping and picnics, and that’s how I really got into it. I just loved it.”
