Want to learn about the history of American barbecue, take a tour of some of the country’s most beloved joints and possibly learn a few secrets of one of America’s most celebrated pit bosses? “BBQ with Franklin,” starring the affable and bespectacled Aaron Franklin begins its run on KLRU, on May 21 at 8 p.m. The series runs over 10 consecutive weeks on Thursday nights, with repeats at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. KLRU produced the series, which will also air on PBS affiliates across the country (have your friends and family check their local listings for a taste of Austin.) The first episode, fittingly, focuses on brisket. Check out the show’s website for more information on episodes and the YouTube series that inspired the show.
