DALLAS, Jan. 31, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- Dickey's Barbecue Pit offers a spicy spin on their polish sausage recipe to customers beginning Tuesday in all locations across the country.
Spicy Cheddar Sausage has proven to be a hit among customers in testing phases, according to officials.
"Spicy jalapeno peppers and creamy cheddar cheese play off of each other in this new Dickey's smoked meat," Dickey's Corporate Chef Tyler Riddle said. "The peppers are perfectly balanced, not too hot, but just enough kick to enhance the smoky, savory flavors and sharp cheddar."
All Dickey's smoked meats and home-style sides are family recipes, passed down through generations and served to customers since 1941.
This will be Dickey's first spicy smoked product offered to customers and one of the first modifications to the Dickey's menu since the chain first began.
"Our meats are slow smoked over night in every Dickey's. Meat is what we do, and we do it the best. I can hang my hat on that," Dickey's Barbecue CEO Roland Dickey said. "We think long and hard, test, listen to our customers and test again before adding anything new to our menu. If it has the Dickey's name on it, it's top-notch—or we wouldn't serve it. Spicy Cheddar Sausage is top notch."
With that confidence, Dickey's rolls out this Limited Time Offer Tuesday, February 1st in all 140 locations in 33 states.
"We are just anxious to get it out there," Chef Riddle said.
This will be the first spicy item that Dickey's has offered their customers.
The first Dickey's Barbecue opened in 1941 in Dallas, TX.
The original location is still open for business and Dickey's Barbecue is still owned and operated by the Dickey Family.
Dickey's only began franchising in 1994.
Even today, Dickey's still slow smokes all of their signature meats overnight in every restaurant.
