As a part of the Eater Awards, the editorial team of our sites across the nation and the national editors in New York arrange to bring amazing culinary talent to city as a part of the awards weekend. Well, Austin, we're going to be well represented with Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue.
Franklin will be guest cooking at Hill Country (a decent excuse for Texas barbecue in Manhattan), showing them all what real brisket tastes like. Franklin may have to work with some electric/gas/gerbil-powered roaster of sorts. Of all people though, Franklin will adapt to the situation well and still make the best barbecue in NYC.
Congrats to Aaron Franklin! We're all looking forward to exporting his talent to the north east, if only for a weekend.
