Navy Vet Cooks Up Barbecue in Wyoming’s Capital with First Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

September 23, 2014 // // Cheyenne, WY - While serving in the Navy, Nate Schott heard about Dickey's Barbecue numerous times from family in Nebraska. One day he decided to make the hour drive from San Diego to Temecula to try Dickey's Barbecue and he was glad he did. On Thursday, September 25 at 11 a.m., Schott will bring his favorite barbecue joint to his new home, Cheyenne. To celebrate, Schott is hosting a three-day grand opening celebration.

"Dickey's not only drew me in with the great food and family-friendly atmosphere, the value also caught my eye," said first time owner, Nate Schott. "Cheyenne is a great market for barbecue and I'm looking forward to fulfilling our brand promise of serving 'A+ Barbecue' to this great city."

Thursday, the first 50 dine-in guests receive gift cards ranging from $5 to $50. Friday includes merchandise giveaways. Stop by on Saturday when guests can feed their barbecue cravings with $2 pulled pork barbecue sandwiches and radio station KOLT FM 100.7 will be on-site from noon to 2 p.m. Guests can test their luck when one lucky winner will win a $500 gift card and three winners receive free barbecue for an entire year.

Schott and his wife, Dezzaree met while serving in the Navy Seabees and now live in Cheyenne with their three children. The first Dickey's Barbecue in Cheyenne is located at 1400 Dell Range Boulevard, Suite 085A and the phone number is 307.287.7478. Follow this new location on Facebook [].
