“Why did I make a pit?”

 

I built Franklin pits for those BBQ purists who want to take their craft to the 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.

Bringing It To Your Backyard

Aaron is bringing his handmade pit design to your backyard. Made in Austin Texas, Franklin pits are a meld of artistry, science, and the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. A family heirloom.

 

Where the Magic Happens

There’s a reason you get up before the sun rises. There’s a reason 5 degrees stress you out. There’s a reason you have separation anxiety with your smoker. There’s a reason you think about what you’ll try on the next brisket. The craft is everything.
