UPDATE: As of 12:22 p.m., Franklin has sold out of its chilled briskets, according to a colleague.
Christmas done come early. That Tweet above pretty much says it all. To celebrate their 5th anniversary (back when they were a wee trailer near the I-35 feeder road), Franklin Barbecue is selling whole chilled briskets for only $50. Those briskets are about six pounds, and Franklin currently sells brisket at $20/pound, so we’re talking more than 1/2-off for whole briskets today.
AND, THERE’S NO WAITING. If you want to buy a whole (read: un-sliced) chilled brisket to go, you don’t have to wait in line. You can walk up to register and be in and out within a few minutes.
Twitter.com/franklinbbqline seems to be on holiday, so no telling how long the line is today.
