When Barack Obama was in Austin, TX, he ate at Franklin Barbecue (he didn’t have to wait in line with everybody else, though). He wasn’t alone, as seemingly everyone in the city lines up outside those hallowed doors just to get some of that sweet smoked meat. But now you won’t have to wait in line, provided you don’t mind putting in the time to become a meat-smoking maestro yourself, because Franklin’s Aaron Franklin and co-author Jordan Mackay are releasing Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto.
Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto takes all of Aaron Franklin’s philosophies and secrets of the barbecue game and puts them in one book. And as of this writing, it’s already the number one best seller on Amazon in the category of meat cooking, so you know that people are almost as eager to read his book as they are to eat his barbecue.
You can check out the aforementioned Amazon listing for Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto right here, where it’s priced at just over $20. And in the gallery below you can see the cover of the book, as well as a particularly tantalizing photo from inside (you might want to be near some food before you look at that one).
