Whole Brisket + Texas Barbecue BBQ Sauce

Product not eligible for additional discounts or promotions


“At Franklin Barbecue, we’ve been humbled for years by praise that’ll make you blush. Honors, awards, and even a few nice things posted on the internet — we’ve been fortunate to be on the receiving end of lots of kind words. They’re neat and all, but what really gets us going — what really keeps us tending to the pits all night long — is the obsessive dedication to our very next customer. We take pride in giving our very best, every single day, to make sure every person who eats Franklin Barbecue is filled with happiness and satisfaction.

We use only the best Black Angus cattle, raised and grazed in the good ol’ US of A. We ain’t messin’ around! It’s important to us that our animals are humanely treated and that our meats are always antibiotic-free. We cook each day on carefully selected post oak grown right here in Central Texas, and we like to think our pit crew is the best in the biz. Details matter, and we bust our tails every day to stay on top of them at Franklin Barbecue. We think you’re going to tell with every bite!" – Aaron & Stacy Franklin

Pitmaster Aaron Franklin and his wife Stacy first started selling their barbecue from a trailer on the side of an Austin interstate in 2009, and nowadays folks start lining up before dawn, whiling away the hours until the doors of Franklin Barbecue swing open at 11 and they can indulge in barbecue that’s been crowned America’s best. Franklin has mastered the fine art of smoking meat in a way that few others have. One forkful and you’ll understand why this is the most sought-after barbecue in America, and why Franklin was awarded the 2015 James Beard Award for Best Chef: Southwest.

Thomas W. - Stockton, NJ

Shirley Z. - Atlanta, GA
Every step of the process was excellent. Communication, website, customer service when I had inquiries, the staff that replied on the chat, shipping notification, packaging, and product, all phenomenal. Seriously, the brisket, wow. Worth every second of the wait.
Mike P. - Abingdon, MD
It came on time and now I get to enjoy the legendary Franklin's Brisket right at home! I once tailgated at Franklin's, starting at 8:30am. Coffee in hand and beer in the cooler. My group was the third group in when they opened around 11-11:30am. It was glorious!
Don W. - West Haven, CT
Delivery, packaging, instructions, and the food was absolutely incredible! I had high expectations based upon the cost of this item, but my expectations were exceeded. I can't wait to order again. I was very impressed with the entire shipping process and the quality and taste of the food.
Patrick C. - Reston, VA
This experience exceeded our expectations. I purchased this for my husband as a birthday gift and he is still talking about how it was the best birthday gift ever. We’ve been to Franklin BBQ a few times - waited in the long lines for a taste of the best BBQ in the world. Every time it did not disappoint and same with the goldbelly experience. We were shocked how delicious the food tasted as if we picked it up fresh that day. The live chat with Aaron was the icing on the cake. He’s so down to earth and for him to share all of his experience and knowledge was incredible. Fortunately my husband was one of the few who got the opportunity to ask a question. He was thrilled. He kept saying how nice and down to earth Aaron was. An experience that was only scheduled to last an hour went on an additional 30mins which was so kind of Aaron and the goldbelly team. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone and you can bet that we will be ordering Franklin’s again through goldbelly.

The brisket from Franklin BBQ came on time, well packaged, and the ice packs keeping it cold hadn't thawed yet. The brisket itself was fantastic.
Howard V. - Rochester, NY
The contents were packed well. The brisket was still frozen and the sausage was still very cold. The Franklin sticker was a very nice touch, especially for a BBQ geek.
