BBQ Princess

To most of us, the Memorial Day weekend means the start of summer and backyard gatherings over plates of barecued 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.
