night August 18th, 2007
walking through Russell’s on our
second break visiting the folks in attendance
I happened to meet Charles Smith from
a BBQ place called LEO’s BBQ. He
was recently featured on the FOOD NETWORK
show called “Diners, Drive-Ins &
Dives” hosted by Guy Fieri. Charles
stopped me to let me know how much fun
he was having listening to the band and
started to tell me a little about LEO’s.
within blocks of Lincoln Park in the heart
of downtown Oklahoma City, Leo’s
has been cranking out BBQ for years with
recipes filled with LOVE, as he calls
it on the show, that started with his
father. Charles uses Hickory
in the slow cooking process for everything
from spare ribs and sausage links to bologna.
Look out for the hot BBQ sauce that is
made from an old family secret recipe.
have yet to try out the place but it sounds
so good and we are looking forward to
the next time we place in Oklahoma City
as we will be making a trip to visit Charles
and his staff at LEO’s on Saturday
September 22nd at 1:00 p.m. Feel free
to make plans and join us for lunch. We
will update this story the following week.
out the show “Diners, Drive-Ins
& Dives” with host Guy Fieri
on the Food
Network featuring Charles and LEO’s
on the following dates: Aug, 20, 25, 26,
27, 30 and Sept. 1.
treated me with a lot of respect and I
know that I am going to become a big fan
of his and his food.
