Dickey's Texas Style Barbecue Goes International!

24 Aug 2022

Dickey's Barbecue Pit shares our love for Legit. Texas. Barbecue. across the world!

What comes to mind when you think of Texas style barbecue? Typically, one may think of classic beef brisket, fall-off-the-bone pork ribs, or maybe some pork butt. You are on the right track. Trying to learn how to smoke a brisket? Forget struggling to understand how to use a smoker and let Dickey’s Barbecue Pit take care of all the smokin’ while you do all the chillin’. Here at Dickey’s, we smoke our barbecue real low and slow in a big, offset smoker with hickory wood, for 12 to 14 hours a day. Now that is legit Texas style BBQ! Even though the Lone Star State has spread its influence across the world, barbecue looks vastly different outside Texas’ state lines.

Did you know that Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has gone international? Not only can you enjoy our Legit. Texas. Barbecue. in any city or state in the nation, you can also enjoy our BBQ menu across the world! Our international franchise locations have held on to our barbecue concept, while introducing their own culture into our authentic menu that has been passed down from generation to generation. Barbecue can have a very different look and feel in different cultures and parts around the world. Here’s a look at how other countries prepare and enjoy our Dickey’s barbecue brand.

Brazil: One of the most popular styles of barbecue from the southern region of Brazil is called churrascaria. Large chunks of meat are slow cooked rotisserie-style and usually served on metal skewers resembling a sword. Much like its American counterpart, this form of cooking was heavy influenced by Brazil’s cowboy or gaucho culture.

Japan: While there isn’t an absence of beef, pork, or chicken on this island nation, sea food usually takes center stage. Japan’s version of barbecue is dominated by grilling bite-sized chunks over direct heat instead of smoking large cuts of meat as prepared in more western styles. In some restaurants, the grilling is done by the customer right at their table, insuring everything is to their liking.

Canada: America’s neighbor to the north has carved out their own lane on Barbecue Road. While Canadian barbecue does have similarities, some key differences are plain and obvious. For example, instead of using brown sugar to bring out a subtly sweet and smoky flavor, maple syrup is used instead. This native ingredient levels out some of the overpowering tang that exists in some sauces.

No matter what corner of the world you come from and how you like to enjoy your barbecue, Dickey’s is here to help bring people from all walks of life together in the best way we know how — sharing the gift of Legit. Texas. Barbecue.
