Franklin Barbecue

Aaron Franklin's meteoric rise from humble trailer food operator with a cart not far from our offices to national media-revered barbecue pitmaster has been truly amazing. The daily line outside his popular Eastside eatery attests to the enduring quality of his brisket, which has sold out every day the restaurant has been open. – Virginia B. Wood
