The BBQ with Franklin web series debuts on YouTube October 25, but KLRU's Indiegogo campaign to raise the $16,000 necessary to produce the entire 8-show series is ongoing. As of yesterday, the campaign had raised over $10,000 but still needs more donors.
No doubt there will be delicious donor thank-you gifts for this mouthwatering and educational project. Franklin's legion of line-weary fans will finally have the opportunity to learn about the art of smoking meat from the Austinite whose skill with briskets has made him one of the most famous pitmasters in the country. To donate to the campaign, go here
The 8-part series provides step-by-step instruction on creating delicious backyard barbecue: everything from building and curing a pit to picking the right wood and building a clean fire, as well as choosing, trimming, and seasoning meats.
