Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Brisket and beef rib rub

    • Foodo on July 04, 2017

      Awesome. Followed his directions as best I could and came out with my first brisket melt in your mouth FANTASTIC! Tried it again a few months later and another success!

  • Potato salad

    • twoyolks on May 16, 2016

      This is a pretty good potato salad. It's definitely strong on the tangy side which contrasts nicely with rich barbecue.

  • Cole slaw

    • twoyolks on July 28, 2015

      This was so incredibly tangy as to be virtually inedible.

    • CarbonToe on January 23, 2016

      This recipe appears to be missing sugar

  • Espresso barbecue sauce

    • HalfSmoke on February 19, 2017

      This is a terrific sauce for brisket, although I'd probably not use it for much else. Don't skip adding the brisket drippings. The drippings, espresso, and soy sauce give it a deep umami flavor. Definitely not sweet, so not your typical BBQ sauce, but a great accent for beef.

Publishers Text

A complete meat- and brisket-cooking education from the country's most celebrated pitmaster and owner of the wildly popular Austin restaurant Franklin Barbecue--winner of Texas Monthly's coveted Best Barbecue Joint in Texas award.

When Aaron Franklin and his wife, Stacy, opened up a small barbecue trailer on the side of an Austin, Texas, interstate in 2009, they had no idea what they’d gotten themselves into. Today, Franklin Barbecue has grown into the most popular, critically lauded, and obsessed-over barbecue joint in the country (if not the world)—and Franklin is the winner of every major barbecue award there is.

In this much-anticipated debut, Franklin and coauthor Jordan Mackay unlock the secrets behind truly great barbecue, and share years’ worth of hard-won knowledge. Franklin Barbecue is a definitive resource for the backyard pitmaster, with chapters dedicated to building or customizing your own smoker; finding and curing the right wood; creating and tending perfect fires; sourcing top-quality meat; and of course, cooking mind-blowing, ridiculously delicious barbecue, better than you ever thought possible.
