Bon Appetit Declares Franklin Barbecue In Austin Texas The Best In the Nation Sun, 06/19/11 3:13 PM (permalink)
Andrew Knowlton, an editor at Bon Appetit, came to Austin and sampled Franklin Barbecue, the wildly popular East Austin barbecue house a couple months ago.
 
The new issue of the magazine has declared that Franklin is the best in the United States.
 
Local and national media picked up the story with results ranging from the prospect of Knowlton being drygulched out near Abilene

To Joe Nick Patoski writing about it in the New York Times

Pat Sharpe over at Texas Monthly has a piece on the hubub too

It's going to be real interesting out in these parts when John Mueller, grandson of Louie Mueller gets his new operation running this summer.
 
This is where Aaron Franklin paid his dues before opening his own place.
 
We've always been real serious about our brisket out in these parts but I've never seen this level of excitement about barbecue.

    Yeah, when you can get there early enough and they still have BBQ to sell.
    Watch the entire video until the end. If you're familiar with, and love central Texas BBQ, you'll really appreciate the last line.

      What a great video.
       
      I thought Salt Lick was supposed to be great.

        I'll wait to comment on that after more people have watched and made their own comments. I do have something to say about what you wrote but, I don't want to spoil it for those that have not seen the video yet.

            Yeah, the "Hitler Rant" vids on YouTube are not for everyone. Sorry if you were offended. I'm Jewish but I have to say, I laughed my @$$ off!
