We don’t need to go into any more detail on the importance of Meat, but it may be worth revisiting one of the oldest and manliest ways of getting a good cut ready for the plate. Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto celebrates the true joy of embracing those sunny Sunday afternoons when one can truly retreat to their primeval roots by cooking over a naked flame, and has been compiled by celebrated “Pitmaster” (definitely using that word at the next Barbie-thon) Aaron Franklin.

Taking time out from running his wildly popular Austin restaurant Franklin Barbecue, Aaron penned this tome to help less experienced grillers refine their techniques and ploughs all of his years of knowledge into the pages to help you find and cure the right wood, tend the perfect fire, source top quality meat and cook everything just right.

Its editorial reviews are subject to the sorts of praise usually reserved for a mother eulogising about her child – Franklin is described as a “god”, a “genius” and more by people who seem to be in the know, so it’s fair to say that if you’re looking to refine your “pit” skills, this could be the place to start.
