Adam Richman, presenter of hugely-popular US TV show Man vs. Food visited Red’s True Barbecue in Leeds.

The food-loving star was filming for new ITV series BBQ Champ, out next month.

And he met up with Red’s co-founder James Douglas to sample some of their dishes for a segment in the show all about ‘low and slow barbecue’.

He has since tweeted his 670,000 followers to say the Leeds eatery’s 14-hour slow smoked brisket was “so good the hairs on the back of my neck stood up” and he has also raved about their super-size onion rings.

Red’s is set to open its fifth restaurant next month, in Shoreditch.
