Aaron Franklin’s next meaty cookbook will shy away from brisket, sausage

Brisket and sausage aren’t the only meats on Aaron Franklin’s mind.

The James Beard-winning pitmaster behind Franklin Barbecue is working on a steak cookbook that’s due for publication in March of 2019.

The book is already available for pre-order on Amazon for $29.99, and the title — for now — is “Franklin Steak.” Ten Speed Press, which published Franklin’s first book, “Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto,” in 2015, has paired him up with co-author Jordan Mackay to “go deeper into the art and science of cooking steak than anyone has gone before,” which means they’ll be traveling the world to get steak tips and recipes from meat-lovers in Spain, Scotland and Japan.

According to the book blurb on Amazon: “They demystify cattle breeds, explore the technique of dry-aging, and even teach readers how to build custom, backyard grill setups inspired by the best steak chefs in the world.”
