Gordon Ramsay, the restaurateur and TV chef behind Master Chef, Hell’s Kitchen, and Kitchen Nightmares recently stopped into B.T.’s Smokehouse in Sturbridge to praise owner Brian Treitman and his BBQ joint.
Treitman said the Scottish chef, most notorious for raising his voice, was all smiles while eating brisket. Ramsay posted his praise to Instagram and Twitter on Saturday, which Treitman said ballooned Treitman’s own social media presence.
Treitman even gave Ramsay a tour of the kitchen and the celebrity chef hung around with his staff, Treitman said. In Treitman’s words, according to The Telegram: “It was pretty awesome.’’
