Franklin Barbecue started bottling and selling its popular sauces more than six years ago, and this month, the trio of flavors is getting an upgrade.

The barbecue restaurant from James Beard-winning Aaron Franklin continues to draw an hours-long line every day for its brisket, sausage and smoked turkey, but home cooks can have a taste of the restaurant at home with Franklin Barbecue sauces, which are sold at retailers including H-E-B and Amazon.

This week, Franklin Barbecue released images of a new label and new 15-ounce bottle for the sauces, which come in three flavors: espresso, Texas BBQ and pork.

In other Franklin Barbecue news, Stacy Franklin says that the pit smokers that they announced were coming last fall will finally be rolling out this year. “We have a working list of people who have signed up for our list,” she says. “We will work through our list of interested people and take orders in chronological order from the time that they signed up.”
