Chef Chuck Cobb, the pitmaster behind the popular Git-N-Messy BBQ restaurant in Winter Springs, has passed away from injuries he suffered in a motorcycle accident today.
Cobb started his BBQ eatery in a gas station, but recently relocated down the road to set up inside the Red Eye Sports Tavern.
He was well known, not just for his BBQ’s great taste, but for some creative dishes like his mouthwatering (and belly-filling) Southern Poutine, which he even got to demonstrate for the nation on Live with Kelly & Ryan.
Chris Poulos, a partner in the restaurant, said Chuck’s legacy would live on via a Facebook post.
Cobb was only 34, and leaves behind his wife and four children. He was great chef, and a great person to know.
Several local chefs are working to stage a barbecue fundraiser with proceeds going to his wife and children. I’ll pass along the details when I hear of them. In the meantime, a GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family with funeral costs.
