Evan LeRoy

LeRoy and Lewis BBQ

Chef and Pitmaster Evan LeRoy incorporates elements of fine dining and responsible sourcing into his seasonally changing menu, shining a new light on traditional cuisine at LeRoy and Lewis. Recently ranked #5 in Texas Monthly’s Top 50 BBQ Joints 2021, Austinites line up for “new school bbq” cuts like beef cheeks and bacon ribs. The truck’s L&L Burger, the Barbacado (barbacoa-stuffed avocado), and Cauliflower Burnt Ends have been showcased by Texas Monthly, Food & Wine, Cooking Channel’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate”, Eater National, and more. Known for his unique takes on Texas barbecue, Evan innovates in more ways than one, building the truck’s offset pit and butchering whole animals specifically for smoking. Evan’s culinary experience ranges from fine dining, to bread baking, to volume barbecue. He has traveled to Australia, China, and Russia, to train and work with prospective pitmasters and has been known for his openness to teaching and sharing smoking secrets. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Evan started a LeRoy and Lewis Patreon page, producing, shooting, and editing instructional bbq videos for followers all over the world. Evan has appeared on The Food Network’s Burgers, Brew & Que, FYI’s Food Porn, and in 2014, took home the title of “Austin Grill Master” on the Travel Channel’s American Grilled Texas episode. Evan has held guest chef appearances at Ludlow House NYC, Paws Up (Montana), Windy City Smokeout (Chicago), Red Dirt Festival (Tyler, TX), Texas Monthly BBQ Festival, Yeti Flagship (Austin), SXSW, and General Electric.
