If you enjoy smoked meats, you should know who Aaron Franklin is. After all, he is one of the world’s foremost experts on barbecue, he’s both the owner and chief firestarter at his own BBQ-focused restaurant in Austin, and he’s even a James Beard Award winner (Best Chef in 2015). And now this unmatched pitmaster is turning his expertise toward crafting a line of smokers.

Built under the name Franklin Barbecue Pits, these high-end smokers are all lovingly handmade in Austin, Texas from 600 pounds of American-made steel each. And things just keep getting better from there, as they’re also designed to perfectly fit up to three briskets, engineered for ideal airflow and temperature control, and they’re even on wheels so you can stash them away between uses. These might just be the ultimate backyard smokers and you can order one for yourself starting at just $2,950 — but you’ll have to trudge through a fairly extensive waitlist first.

Purchase: $2,950+
