Let’s say you’re staring into the hazy smoke emanating from your backyard smoker. (Let’s also say you have a backyard smoker.) Into that smoke you send a wish that, this time, you’ve nailed the formula of the perfect cook. What appears in the smoke isn’t masterfully cooked brisket or ribs, but a book. Okay, books manifesting in smoke means too much backyard beer, but “Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto” is a kind of holy grail for budding pitmasters - the kind of book author Aaron Franklin could’ve used in his trial-and-error days before opening Franklin’s. More of a resource guide than a cookbook, it covers the core elements of successful barbecue: smoker, wood, fire, meat, and patient, precise cooking. “It can get a little geeky,” Aaron writes. Brisket so perfect you get the meat sweats is all in the details.
