I recently “found” a new show — BBQ With Franklin. Hosted by Texas pitmaster Aaron Franklin, the show covers topics such as:
- The different varieties of wood and selecting the appropriate piece for the application.
- Making sausage.
- Comparing different types of smokers, and how to build one from scratch.
- Brisket. Chicken. Pork. Other cuts of cow.
- “Cowboy” style (direct heat) cooking.
- Competition BBQ.
- Lots more.
As an example, here’s a piece focused on smoking sausage:
I think he has a nice, low-key presentation style. The information given is clear and concise, and he often includes nuances that aren’t all that obvious without experience in the subject. When watching I’ve had many “Oh.. That’s why it’s done that way!” moments.
Highly recommended viewing!
