Caldwell County BBQ

Clay and his son Spencer Caldwell, partners, model their barbecue operation on Franklin Barbecue. Aaron Franklin’s barbecue temple is about as widely considered the best in the country as a barbecue spot can be. Clay, who oversees the food at Caldwell’s, takes a Franklin-inspired approach to brisket: a “Franklin trim,” salt and pepper seasoning, and wrapping in butcher paper. He uses wood-fired 1,000-gallon smokers that he welded partly himself, same as Franklin's but for a square firebox and thicker firebox insulation.
