When you work the kind of crazy hours barbecue professionals put in, you deserve a break. Especially when you’ve been doing it for a decade like Aaron and Stacy Franklin. The whole crew at Franklin gets a break starting next week, so if you’ve got out-of-town friends looking to grub some barbecue or you’re a glutton for waiting in the heat, you best make other plans. Franklin Barbecue will be closed from July 30 through August 9. What that means, this Sunday will be the last time to get that transcendent brisket until Friday August 10. During that lull, check out the Top 10 barbecue restaurants in Austin. Or maybe just take a few plays off, friends.
