BRENHAM, Texas - May 12, 2014 // PRNewswire // - Lowell Nix has enjoyed life in Brenham for the last 30 years. On Thursday, May 15 at 11:00a.m., Nix will bring slow smoked barbecue to town when he opens the newest Dickey's Barbecue Pit. To celebrate, the new Brenham location is hosting a three-day grand opening celebration. The first 50 guests will receive a gift card for up to $50.

"My wife and I have lived in Brenham for the last 30 years and have teenagers attending Brenham High School," said Nix. "We are excited to serve slow smoked barbecue to the community and show them our passion for the art of great barbecue – we want to be the catering experts in the area."
