KLRU-TV, Austin PBS and Aaron Franklin are teaming up. They've started a fund raiser on Indiegogo to raise money for a web series on how to cook Texas barbecue.
Sounds like it could be a Prague Spring for burgeoning pit bosses.
Head on over to http://www.indiegogo.com/bbqwithfranklin to learn how you can help.
They're looking to raise 16k which sounds pretty modest by current standards.
We'd love to see Franklin offer "stroll to the front of the line for one year" as a donor reward for a contribution of the full 16k. With the stroke of a pen the whole fundraiser could be realized for one lucky, deep pocketed meat lover.
