Brisket Whisperer Aaron Franklin's New TV Show Hits PBS This May

Get ready to nerd out even more about barbecue.

Based on Aaron Franklin's mega-successful webseries, new PBS TV Show BBQ With Franklin will premiere this May. According to KLRU's programming schedule, the first episode will air Thursday, May 21 in Austin; folks in other markets should check in with the local PBS station there.

The first episode is, unsurprisingly, focused on brisket, and features cameos from barbecue critic Daniel Vaughn and writer and producer John Markus. Other episode titles include "Whole Hog," "Direct Heat & Mesquite, and "The Pits," all hosted by the Franklin Barbecue mastermind and (presumably) featuring other guests. Here's a preview for the premiere's brisket nerdfest:
