Before barbecue sauce found its rightful calling atop charbroiled ribs and brisket, it enjoyed a celebrated, albeit brief, stint as both an extra bold salad dressing and an aftershave marketed exclusively to men named Smoky. Help celebrate this scintillating sauce's true calling with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of smokehouse fare and drinks at Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Schererville, Indiana.
Since 1941, the Dickey family has been churning out Texas-style barbecue and tasty family style sandwiches, sides, salads, and baked taters. Dickey’s lets customers choose from a menu of USDA Prime meats—all cooked slowly to smoky perfection over a hot hickory fire pit every night—including southern pulled pork, tender turkey breast, and Virginia-style ham. Start with some sliced beef brisket on the big barbecue sandwich ($5) served with pickles, onions, and Dickey's famous sweet-and-spicy barbecue sauce, which took three years, two fist fights, and one small kitchen fire to develop. Or go with the quarter plate, a quarter pound of your favorite meat served with two sides and a roll ($7). Sides include waffle-iron fries, barbecue beans, original potato salad, and baked-potato casserole ($1.50 each when purchased separately). Diners with more than one mouth to feed can play hot potato with a giant stuffed baker ($4) before stuffing their head's two other mouths with the picnic pack, which includes a pound of meat, two pintsize sides, four rolls, and barbecue sauce ($20).
The original Dickey’s debuted in Dallas, coincidentally on the last year the city was dubbed America's Cleanest-Fingered City. Since this early success, Dickey's has expanded to more than 130 locations in 31 states, working hard to fulfill its goal of serving the tastiest barbecue around.
