Hardy’s BBQ founder Corries Hardy dies in Sunday accident in Bethesda

In 2013, the couple made the decision to quit their full-time jobs and focus solely on Hardy’s BBQ. In his black apron, branded chef’s shirt and (frequently) straw hat, Corries was a constant presence at one of his two direct-heat grills/smokers, one custom-made and the other purchased “from a guy named Bubba in Georgia,” Roxie recalled. Corries called his barbecue “Georgia-style,” a class of smoked meats that is tricky to pin down but tends to be sweeter and smokier than other regional styles. He even created his own line of sauces, including one (Spicy Mozell) named for his grandmother, Mozell Johnson.
