We reckon that if Aaron Franklin had been competing instead of judging they could have just called the whole thing off and given him the championship trophy; so it’s probably for the best he’s sitting this one out.
The other pit bosses would’ve just ran shrieking in terror as soon as they saw Franklin wheeling into the parking lot with his rig.
Decorum is always important at this sort of affair.
