The Most Famous Barbecue Pitmaster in America Designed a Smoker

Designed by Texas barbecue master Aaron Franklin, Franklin Barbecue Pits are grail smokers.


Aaron Franklin, master barbecue pitmaster and owner of Franklin Barbecue, has designed and released his own smoker.

The pit is an offset smoker (the firebox, where the fuel burns, is attached to the hip of the grill) made of 600-plus pounds of steel. It’s available in natural steel and powder-coated steel and the cooking space is large enough for three briskets. Like any decent smoker, it’s designed for high circulation, temperature control and moisture retention (there’s a dedicated slot for a water pan). When available, the grill will ship to customers in one large crate.

Starting at $2,950, Franklin Barbecue Pits aren’t available for purchase yet, but you can get on the waitlist.
