...saying that labor costs can be held down by not having it cooked slowly over a wood fire by a sullen man with a squint was like saying that a symphony orchestra would be cheaper without the violins.

very fine hickory-smoked brisket (salt-and-pepper-rubbed and as tender as Granny's Sunday roast). Skimpy ribs and flavorful but rather ordinary pork-and-beef sausage (Texas Monthly)

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!
