You can only gift someone barbecue sauce so many times.
But what can you give those in your life whose devotion to Austin’s famed Franklin Barbecue is just as constant as the joint’s ‘round-the-block line?
Either a lot, a lot of Big Red, or, like Eater Austin suggests, a $175 blue porcelain tray that was designed to “immortalize the iconic Franklin Barbecue tray.”
It appears the porcelain version, much like its well-worn plastic counterpart, comes with imitation scratch marks.
The tray, which was designed by restaurant ceramicist Keith Kreeger, is available for purchase in Texas Monthly’s online shop.
Keep in mind, Santas -- if you’re using the tray the right way, it’ll be covered in butcher paper and grease regardless.
