Updated: Nov 12, 2023

It's that time again! TIME FOR FOOTBALL & FOOD!

Recently on my Instagram @fabfoodiebambi Live's show "In The Kitchen" I spoke with my dear friend, award winning celebrity home chef, Brian Leigh of BT Leigh's rubs & sauces, and I asked him to share some of his tailgating secrets and in his famous, Chef B.T. style, he did not disappoint.


Hailing from Bowling Green, Kentucky by way of Cleveland,

Ohio, his hometown, this flavor

boss always brings his "A" game when it comes to creating great recipes and combining delicious flavors!

From his award-winning sauce and rub company with a variety of cool products like "Somethin' To Beef About" rub, "The Magical Mop" sauce, and his top selling sauce, "The Clevelander" paying homage to his hometown to his global captivating appeal on PBS network food competition series, "The Great American Recipe", Chef Leigh's passion for the art of food truly shines brightly in everything he showcases!
