Master the Craft

I built Franklin pits for those BBQ purists who want to take their craft next level. Each pit is skillfully made by hand in Austin, Texas. They are built to last. They are built with purpose. They are the result of everything I’ve learned and all the happy accidents I’ve made over the years. But my pits don’t cook on their own. They need you. They need your hard work, your passion, your patience and your craft. Give them that, and they’ll reward you every single time.

- James Beard Award-Winning Pit Master, Aaron Franklin
