Default Franklin BBQ OMG!!!

My wife and I are in Austin, TX for my company's annual meeting, so guess where I had lunch? You guessed it... Franklin BBQ! We got there at 8:00 AM and were 10th in line! The 3-hour wait was so worth it! We met some really cool people and the conversation made the time pass quickly. I had beef ribs, brisket, and sausage. Let me be clear... IT WAS ALL WORTH THE WAIT!!! Best of all, Aron Franklin was there and I got a picture!

That's awesome. It's defiantly a stop I'd like to make someday too. And as many forum members that know good BBQ have been there and say how good it is, that says a lot.

I'm headed to Austin in another couple of months. Hopefully the line will be shorter then.

That looks absolutely fabulous. Thanks for posting!
