When it comes to waiting in line for food, there aren’t many places we feel are worth it. Franklin Barbecue in Austin, Texas, however, is absolutely one of those places. It’s some of the best meat we’ve ever consumed. What started as small barbecue joint on the side of the road in 2009 has become one of the best, most critically acclaimed barbecue joints in the country … and now Aaron Franklin has teamed up with co-author Jordan Mackay to share years of meat-smoking knowledge and give all his secrets away. Everything from smoker customization and wood selection to fire-tending and meat choice is addressed in the new book Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto.
