Now he’s back with Franklin Steak—his second book with co-author and friend Jordan Mackay. What was the inspiration behind your new cookbook, Franklin Steak? The ideas actually developed organically while Jordan and I were writing the first book, Franklin Barbecue. Steaks were already something he was interested in writing about, and I started to think, “You know, this is a perfect, easy extension of barbecue.” We wanted to explore what it means to really know…
