Franklin’s Barbeque

In April, I made a trip to Austin to see Daniel Tosh, and I made it a point to go to Franklin’s Barbecue.¬†For whatever reason, I decided to bring my drone. In my head, I thought that I would take some photos of the skyline in Austin, but the weather was not the best when I was down there. I ended up getting it out for a quick flight while waiting in line at Franklin’s, and I took the photo below. I was going to take more, but the clouds were rolling in. I didn’t want to risk the drone getting soaked in a random Texas rain storm. You can see the line is all the way into the back parking lot. I was right behind the stairs on the left side of the building.

Franklin's BBQ Line Before Opening

We got there around 7 AM, and we got our food around 12:30 PM. It was worth every minute of the wait. It was the best brisket I have ever had.

I got some other photos while I was there with my phone. I got a nice picture of the sign and my food.

Since Aaron was walking around, I also got a photo with him. From what I understand, he is there most days, but I am not sure that I will ever get a chance to meet the Barbecue legend again.
