Free barbecue for a year?

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit’s new location in Tulsa will hold its grand opening on Friday with a promotion to win free barbecue for a year and one dollar sandwiches throughout lunch.

Famous for its slow-smoked signature meats and home-style sides, the Texas-based chain will celebrate from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. while patrons enjoy dollar barbecue sandwiches.

“Our neighbors here in Tulsa love great, hickory-smoked barbecue and judging from our success so far, they love the Dickey’s,” said Mark Woeppel, the owner/operator. “This past month has been truly rewarding—hard work finally culminating in positive results.  The grand opening will be a great opportunity to celebrate the Tulsa community and officially mark the beginning for this Dickey’s location.”

Based on previous openings of the franchise in other areas, the event is projected to draw a large crowd of people participating in the festivities at 6044 S. Yale Avenue, the site of the new Dickey’s Restaurant.

Barbecue sandwiches will be $1 throughout the event, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Dickey’s is growing at a rapid pace with 147 locations open in 33 states to date.

The first Dickey’s Barbecue opened in 1941 in Dallas, TX.  The original location is still open for business and Dickey’s Barbecue is still owned and operated by the Dickey Family.  Even today, Dickey’s still slow smokes all of their signature meats overnight in every restaurant.
