A barbecue pit is nothing without a Pit Master. Our Pit Masters, our Owner Operators, are true artisans who smoke all their meats low and slow every night, to serve hot and fresh to their guests every day. Dickey’s Barbecue Pit wouldn’t be who we are today without our Pit Masters. Meet some of these hardworking folks who smoke and serve great barbecue every day while building up their local communities.

"Before I invested with Dickey’s I researched several barbecue concepts. I knew I wanted to add a barbecue restaurant to my portfolio and I went with Dickey’s because the product was high-quality and simple. I currently own seven Dickey’s locations with my brother, and we have been in business with Dickey’s for seven years. We kept seeing great success with each store opening, so we kept coming back for more. Overall, Dickey’s has evolved to meet the needs of today’s guests with advances such as online ordering and third party sales, which is great for attracting new people to try our barbecue. Sales trends come and go, but quality food is what keeps us steady."
