“James Beard winner Aaron Franklin arrives at work every morning at 2am to start prepping and smoking meat; the beef he uses is hormone- and antibiotic-free, and thus, the fat reacts to lower temperatures and maintains juiciness. The fatty cuts are melt-in-your-mouth tender, and the lean cuts aren’t far behind. Blackened “burnt ends” are a highly coveted prize – much like the plastic baby found in a king cake – so if you get one, make sure to buy a lotto ticket. That way, you can buy more barbecue… from Franklin Barbecue, of course.” - Anastacia Uriegas and Dan Gentile via Thrillist
