DALLAS - Texans rejoice! We have a winner for best barbecue at this year's Texas Fair and the top honors, once again, go to Leatherface in a near-unanimous vote of barbecue experts. Trust me, this panel of judges is more than qualified. Texans know barbecue. This year's "top chef" is an all-too-familiar face around the fairgrounds and makes it a point to attend every single year. When asked about this award, Leatherface takes home these honors with humility, "You know, I come here for a good time. This is my favorite time of year and I just love seeing all the friendly faces around these parts." He continued, "Nothing beats that look on someone's face when they try my recipes for the first time. Even all the regulars coming by my table for a bite makes me feel honored and blessed just to be here."

The humble cooking savant always makes a splash with his dishes each and every year. Not only does he bring all of the familiar barbecue staples, but he makes it a point to bring something new every time the fair rolls around. Don't ask Leatherface what's in his dishes, though. "These recipes are a family secret," he proudly explains. "I come from a family that takes their meat very seriously so I would be remiss to reveal too much about what goes into it. Let's just say that we put a little bit of Texan into every dish." We couldn't agree more, as nothing quite captures the heart and essence of Texas like its people.

In a way, there's a little bit of all of us at the best barbecue competition. Leatherface understands this and that's what makes him such a great winner we can all be proud of and root for each year. The people love him and it really shows that he shares that same love back in his delicious barbecue. Best of all, he tries to take part in a little bit of everything at the fair. "I may be treated like a bit of a celebrity behind the grill," he admits. "But when I'm out there playing games or taking part in the relay race, I'm just another Texan at the fair. In fact, I'm about to head over to the chainsaw logging competition to cap off another great weekend."

As if Leatherface's resume wasn't decorated enough, you can add "seasoned logger" to the list as he took home yet another 1st place prize today. What a great day in Texas!
