Aaron Franklin's A Southern Living Best Pit Master

Is Aaron Franklin tired of repeatedly being told he's so awesome at barbecue yet? Southern Living has named him to their "Smokin' Hot List" of the South's best pit masters, alongside the likes of the very beardy Will Fleischman at Lockhart Smokehouse in Dallas and Rodney Scott of Scott's Bar-B-Que in Hemingway, South Carolina.

In this video postcard from the pit masters' home bases, Franklin gives Southern Living a look at the day-to-day smoking processes at Franklin, which starts at 2:30 a.m. and involves a whole lot of espresso.
