Who is Mr. Moo and what can he do for you?

Redmond foodies are getting to know Steve Johncox (a.k.a. Mr. Moo) and his wife Charlene as the area’s purveyors of cherry-smoked, dry-rubbed beef brisket, pork spare ribs, pulled pork and half-chickens that are “Smoked by Moo, Sauced by Yoo.”

In other words, you decide if, how much or what kind of sauce you want on your barbecued meat — original/sweet, medium or Habanero Hot.

“We’re Kansas City-style as opposed to Southern ‘wet’ barbecue,” said Steve. “Almost nobody does what we do.”

Fans of Teddy Bear BBQ, formerly in downtown Duvall and now in Monroe, will recognize the sauces used at Mr. Moo’s BBQ. Steve learned the art of cooking barbecue from Konrad Haskins of Teddy Bear and had planned to open Mr. Moo’s in Duvall but he and Charlene changed their minds when construction and flooding issues affected commerce there.

Since opening Mr. Moo’s BBQ at 23455 NE Novelty Hill Rd., Suite G-407 in the Village at Redmond Ridge, Steve and Charlene have been very pleased with their location.

“It’s BBQ with a view,” Charlene quipped, gazing out toward the majestic Cascades to the east.

Also, there’s plenty of free parking at the Village of Redmond Ridge, Steve noted. That comes in handy during work days, when lots of truck drivers stop by to get a quick BBQ fix, as well as dinner times and weekends when more leisurely customers kick back and watch sports on multiple screens at Mr. Moo’s.

Mr. Moo’s subscribes to NFL Ticket and plays three different games at any time, said Steve. The restaurant will run special deals on game-day munchies. Beer and wine are also available.

During the holiday season, Mr. Moo’s BBQ is offering party specials on catering, including two meats and two sides of your choice for $9 per person. Sides include baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw or garlic smashed potatoes. For an extra 50 cents per person, you can have cornbread, too. Delivery is free for orders of more than $100.

Also available for catering are five pound pans of meat (beef brisket, pulled pork or pork spare ribs) for $55.99 or five half-chickens for $29.99; and five pound pans of sides for $29.99 each.

With a purchase of a $25 gift card, you’ll get $5 off on your next purchase. That offer is valid through Dec. 24.

Mr. Moo’s is open daily, except for major holidays and it will close early on Christmas Eve, so call ahead for holiday orders and hours. All major credit cards are accepted, as well as cash, but not checks.

But why the Mr. Moo nickname? Steve spent 21 years delivering milk for Smith Brothers’ Farms in the Greater Snoqualmie Valley. “More people know me as Moo than as Steve,” he said.
