Had the pleasure to visit with Aaron Franklin yesterday and begged him, absolutely begged him to open a 2nd location in H-town! The good news,, he will be expanding his current location and adding a "take-out" counter. I stood in line yesterday, from 1015a until 1230p to be served and I brought back a sampling of meats that i feasted on last night.. Aaron mentioned that they go thru 1000lbs of meat daily,, 1400lbs on saturdays.. He starts the grilling at 2am,, opens at 11am and typically is sold out by 130p. He and staff put in a 22hr work day. Great guy, great BBQ that is consistently good on each visit and great folks working for him.
