WOODCHIPS VS. PELLETS
Dickey’s has traditionally used woodchips in every Pit, but recently incorporated a new pellet smoker to reduce the carbon footprint while still providing the same great taste. The pellets themselves are Dickey’s proprietary pellets and use hickory wood to maximize Dickey’s authentic flavor.
The age and type of the Pit as well as the style of the Pit Master determines whether the Dickey’s restaurant uses woodchips or pellets. Today, some Dickey’s Owner Operators still use woodchips, and some now use our new pellets. Whichever type of wood is used, Dickey’s guests receive the same great flavor from location to location.
