The Franklin BBQ Pit designed and crafted by Texas pitmaster Aaron Franklin. Franklin’s BBQ Restaurant in Austin, TX. is legendary for the best brisket in Texas. All of Aaron’s pits at his restaurant were handcrafted by the pitmaster himself. Now, he’s taken his skill and downsized his pits for backyard pitmasters like us. Aaron took years of development, trial and error plus thousands of practice cooks to come up with The Franklin BBQ Pit. This pit weighs 625 pounds and is heirloom quality. You’ll teach your sons and daughters, they’ll teach their children and a tradition will be born out of one BBQ vessel – The Franklin BBQ Pit.
