“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 the good ol' US of A. 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.
Bring It To Your Backyard
Aaron has brought his handmade pit design to your backyard. Made in the USA, 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.

PK Collaboration Grill
“For so many years I have been excited about the PK grill, purely as a spectator and a consumer. As a tinkerer I felt there were some cool modifications I could make. I wish this was a little bit taller, I wish this had another shelf, I need a place to put 2 sets of tongs, I want a place to slide sheet trays etc. Lucky for me I get to collaborate with our friends at PK and make the coolest grill my backyard has seen.”
