Smoking meat takes expertise, time, and a great deal of patience, which is why so few Boy Scouts earn the barbecue merit badge. Taste the merits of expertly smoldered meat with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of smokehouse fare and drinks at Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Midland.
Since 1941, Dickey’s has been slow-smoking USDA Prime cuts nightly, slathering them with family-recipe barbecue sauce, and pairing them with a variety of homestyle sides. The dine-in or takeout menu boasts nine hickory-infused meats, including southern pulled pork, sliced or chopped beef brisket, and spicy cheddar sausage, which can nestle comfortably inside sandwiches such as the pickle and onion-stuffed Big Barbecue ($4.75, $7.25 with two sides) or fly on breadless wings into the one-meat plate ($9.25), loaded with a full portion of meat, two sides, and a roll. Side dishes attempt to steal the meat cabaret spotlight with high-kicking vittles including creamy coleslaw, barbecue beans, and mac ‘n’ cheese ($2 each). A giant stuffed baker with meat ($6.25) paints a fluffy canvas of baked potato with broad strokes of smoky meat, and the Picnic Pack ($22) lets groups of three to four diners choreograph synchronized chewing with its 1 pound of meat, two medium sides, four rolls, and barbecue sauce.
The original Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Dallas still dishes out signature barbecue and franchises have rolled across the country faster than a tumbleweed during mating season. Satisfy multiple gullets by using today's deal toward the catering menu, featuring a barbecue buffet ($8.50+/person) or boxed lunch ($6.75+/person) options for parties of ten or more.
