Description

Dickey's Barbecue Pit is a true American success story. In 1941, Travis Dickey, a World War II veteran, opened the first Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Dallas, Texas. Dickey was a true Texas character blessed with the gift of gab and the love of authentic, slow-smoked barbecue. In the beginning, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit was truly a family operation with Travis working the block and Miss Ollie Dickey serving sandwiches. Space on the restaurant sign was rented out to help pay the start-up costs for the restaurant and the menu was limited to beef brisket, pit hams, barbecue beans, potato chips, beer, bottled milk and sodas.

Brothers Roland and T.D. Dickey took over the business in 1967, continuing their father’s legacy of quality, hickory smoked signature meats. Under the direction of the Dickey brothers, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit expanded throughout the Dallas Fort Worth area and quickly became known throughout Texas for mouthwatering hickory-smoked barbecue, popular catered events and the iconic Big Yellow Cups. Franchising began in 1994 after loyal guests and barbecue fanatics demanded more locations. Today with more than 500 locations in 44 states, loyal guests are what keep Dickey’s thriving in every community.

    Growing Greens In Denton Tx

    How to grow lettuce, arugula, Swiss chard, spinach, kale, collards, and mustard greens in Texas. Greens are really easy to grow and in Texas we have two growing seasons for greens. In the video I forgot to say that kale, collard greens and mustard greens are more cold hardy than lettuce, Swiss chard and spinach and so they don't need to be covered or protected when the temperature reaches 22 degrees or below or a light snow is expected. If heavy ice is expected then you might just cover them to keep the leaves from potentially being discolored by the ice. In the video you will notice that I planted the very cold-hardy plants outside of the cold frame.
