Leons BarBQ | "Show us your pits"

There's not much point in complaining about high-tech barbecue. It serves a purpose, and it's here to stay. And no doubt the quality of it will keep on improving. But as the old barbecue joints slowly disappear, each one that remains becomes a bigger treasure.

Leon's has closed.  The owner, John Montelepre, opened a new business over in Bossier City with his son (a pastry chef), called 2Johns Steak and Seafood.  We are sorry to see Leon's go, but this makes total sense to us... John was already cooking up inside round and pork tenderloin for his customers at Leon's.   One of his comments to our BBQ Crew was that they "don't compete on cost".  This translates well to the steakhouse market.

As mentioned in the article below, Leon's barbecue sauce is used on the Friday-only lunch menu with the pulled pork sandwich.  So if you loved the sauce like we did, visit 2Johns to get your fix!
