Aaron Franklin Crowdsources for PBS Television Show

Aaron Franklin, of the famous Austin barbecue restaurant Franklin’s BBQ, launched a crowdsourcing campaign via Indiegogo to raise funds for an additional season of the PBS hit ” BBQ with Franklin”.

The episodes for the second season have been mostly filmed, so the $20,000 that the campaign is requesting is to finalize the season and get it out on broadcast. PBS is supported by donations from, ‘viewers like you’, so this campaign is a true non-profit endeavor. There are some perks for donating to the campaign ranging from $10 to $1000.  The entry-level donation gets your name written in barbecue sauce while the top dollar donation awards you with a private screening, food, live music and the ability to watch Daniel Vaughn interview Aaron Franklin.

I've lived in Texas all my life and can't express how much I love this state. I found that I was enjoying these amazing bbq spots and drinking fantastic Texas-made beer and wanted my buddies and I to be able to share them with our readers.
