Franklin BBQ Pit


I built Franklin Pits for those BBQ purists who want to take their craft to the next level. Each pit is skillfully made by hand in the good ol’ US of A. They are built to last. They are built with purpose. They are the result of everything I’ve learned and all the happy accidents I’ve made over the years. But my pits don’t cook on their own. They need you. They need your hard work, your passion, your patience and your craft. Give them that, and they’ll reward you every single time.- Aaron FranklinThe pit is approximately 625 lbs, and despite being on casters, can be difficult to maneuver. It’s best to move the pit with an extra set of hands (or two) into your desired area where it can remain in that spot. It’s best to pick a solid and level location that can support the weight of your pit (ie. concrete pad or pavers).Product Care:The raw steel pit will need to be regularly seasoned on the inside and the outside with food grade oil (we like flaxseed oil or rendered fat from leftover trimmings). Seasoning the pit with food grade oil will protect it from rusting, especially if you live in a humid place or let the pit come into contact with water. Basically, take care of it like you would your grandma’s heirloom cast iron pans.Items Included:Your pit comes with…Custom Tel-Tru ThermometerGrease BucketWater PanRemovable Steel Cooking GrateBolt-on SmokestackPit Badge with Unique Body Number Riveted to the Bottom Shelf5″ Casters (2 Stationary at Firebox End, 2 Swiveling at Smokestack EndOwner’s Manual
