As Feast Portland approaches, we decided to look back a year, when Aaron Franklin had to cancel his planned trip to PDX and instead, deal with a restaurant fire.
From the original podcast:
On the heels of a fire that caused Aaron Franklin's famed Austin restaurant to rebuild for a few months, the storied barbecue king talks about learning about barbecue as a kid and his perception of his craft that his parents never had.
A little politics, and we talk business: Why he won't open another Franklin Barbecue, sourcing his meat for his brisket, and what the Visa commercial he did bought him, and why he did it. And also, you know, the usual stuff, like Obama visiting your restaurant.
