Desperate to know how Aaron Franklin smokes beef ribs? Citing impatient fans, Franklin's PBS-sponsored web series BBQ With Franklin has launched a crowdfunding campaign to wrap up post production on their second season. The first season of the series was a mega-success, garnering over two million views on YouTube. The new set of videos will feature a segment dedicated to beef ribs and many other nerdy barbecue tidbits.

The PBS TV series is still in the works as well. KLRU tells CultureMap they've "secured funds" for the television production, and are currently in talks with PBS for distribution. Expect Aaron Franklin on the TV in early 2015.
