Barbeque Princess

To most of us, barbecue means summer and backyard gatherings over plates of grilled chicken, pork, or burgers. For Leslie Scott, barbecue is much more. It's a way of life. As she tells Dick Gordon, making great ribs can make someone fall in love with you.

Leslie comes from a family with a barbecue sauce that goes back five generations. She and her father have worked side-by-side for years at barbecue competitions. But it was not until she received a surprise gift from her father, that Leslie realized she had come into her own in the world of barbecue. This story originally aired on September 5, 2008.
