Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto

9781607747208_p0_v2_s600

A complete meat- and brisket-cooking education from the country’s most celebrated pitmaster and owner of the wildly popular Austin restaurant Franklin Barbecue–winner of Texas Monthly’s coveted Best Barbecue Joint in Texas award.

When Aaron Franklin and his wife, Stacy, opened up a small barbecue trailer on the side of an Austin, Texas, interstate in 2009, they had no idea what they’d gotten themselves into. Today, Franklin Barbecue has grown into the most popular, critically lauded, and obsessed-over barbecue joint in the country (if not the world)—and Franklin is the winner of every major barbecue award there is.

In this much-anticipated debut, Franklin and coauthor Jordan Mackay unlock the secrets behind truly great barbecue, and share years’ worth of hard-won knowledge. Franklin Barbecue is a definitive resource for the backyard pitmaster, with chapters dedicated to building or customizing your own smoker; finding and curing the right wood; creating and tending perfect fires; sourcing top-quality meat; and of course, cooking mind-blowing, ridiculously delicious barbecue, better than you ever thought possible.

Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto ($29.99) will be released on April 7, 2015 as a 224 page hardcover book and would make a perfect gift for the pit master in your family!

Arby’s Has a $10 Secret Menu Item Called The Meat Mountain

Arby’s has a secret menu item (meaning it’s not on the official menu but you can request it and they’ll make it for you) called the Meat Mountain. It’s a truly formidable tower of meats, and it all started because of this promotional photo:

Bv-jjpVCUAAptB2.jpg-large

Arby’s created that poster to remind consumers that the chain sells plenty of meats besides its famous roast beef. This marketing strategy worked, apparently, because people started coming in asking if they could order that entire stack o’ meats. And the Meat Mountain was born.

Here’s what the $10 monstrosity-on-a-bun includes:

- 2 chicken tenders
- 1.5 oz. of roast turkey
- 1.5 oz. of ham
- 1 slice of Swiss cheese
- 1.5 oz. of corned beef
- 1.5 oz. brisket
- 1.5 oz. of Angus steak
- 1 slice of cheddar cheese
- 1.5 oz. roast beef
- 3 half-strips of bacon

The 17 Most Influential Burgers of All Time

TIME interviewed burger historians and experts to determine which patties made the biggest impact on the burger industry—and the world at large. Check out the 17 most influential burgers of all time HERE.

eten-frieten-hamburgers-In-N-Out-cheeseburgers-1600x2560

The In-N-Out Burger – Whereas McDonald’s focused on fast, In-N-Out focused on food—its signature burger, which debuted in 1948, was made from locally sourced ground beef and fresh vegetables. That approach may have prevented In-N-Out’s expansion (it has just 294 locations today, compared with McDonald’s 34,000-plus), but it certainly hasn’t dampened foodie enthusiasm: the In-N-Out burger routinely tops best-of burger lists, and has inspired the launch of other higher-end fast food chains, such as Five Guys.
