Meatopia 2012: Josh Ozersky And Aaron Franklin Talk Meat (VIDEO)

There are a lot of things to love about this video. Founder, Josh Ozersky referring to this as a "global festival celebrating eating things with parents." Brisket wizard Aaron Franklin explaining the secret to perfectly tender and juicy barbecue. And the meat -- OH the meat.

We had so much fun at Meatopia 2012, that we just have to keep sharing little bits of it with you. One of our favorite parts (aside from the brisket -- did we mention the brisket yet?) was how friendly and informative Franklin managed to be, even while being hands-down the busiest vendor there. As a bonus, toward the end of the video, you can catch some of your HuffPost Taste and Food editors having their minds absolutely blown by Franklin Barbecue's brisket. We are, as Josh Ozersky referred to us, definitely "meatheads."

Thanks for the meat memories, Josh!
