Ask Dr. Bunny. Leon’s Good Stuff BBQ Sauce? Dennis Madden, guest

Dennis Madden and Dr. Bunny

Dennis Madden, CEO of ATRA (Mercury Broadcasting’s beloved Title Sponsor!), joins Dr. Bunny for a fun interview about “expanding your hobby”.  Dennis tells us how his love of creating BBQ sauce, led him to a delicious new venture – Leon’s Good Stuff BBQ Sauce!

Tune in as Dennis shares some fun stories – including one where he spontaneously created a BBQ sauce for a diabetic friend, and it ended up winning 1st prize at the Fair!  And by the way, who is Leon?

The Story of Leon:

  • The story of Leon’s goes back to the early 70’s when I took a cooking class in Jr. high.
    Later, in high school, I went to work at small buffet restaurant; The Royal Fork. This
    began my hobby of cooking and experimentation. I never wrote down my recipes; it was
    just fun and most of it worked (I had a few duds, well… a lot of duds).
    In the 90’s I got into making pickles and then stumbled onto BBQ! Fast forward to 2009.
    BBQ was so much fun but damn, there’s got to be a way to make better sauce then
    what was at the supermarket.
    I went on to make several varieties of sauce, not much better than from the store. But in
    2011 I made a sauce that my wife could finally enjoy. “I might have something here”, I
    thought. I entered it in the county fair and earned 3rd place. Since then, I’ve earned 1st
    place every year with four different recipes.
    In 2015 I became a certified BBQ Judge through KCBS (Kansas City BBQ Society), the
    largest organizer of BBQ contests in the world (KCBS Judge #15452).
    BBQ and saucing is still my favorite hobby but after pushing and prodding from my
    friends and family, Leon’s Good Stuff is available to everyone. There are more recipes
    coming soon and I hope you enjoy it and have a great time cooking!
    – Leon
