Obviously MARvelous: Dickey's Holiday Feast

One of the nation’s top Mommy Blogs, Obviously Marvelous wrote an amazing review of Dickey’s Prime Rib Holiday Feast!



Nine days ya’ll! There is just nine short days until Christmas and I better not be the only one who has major anxiety about that. While it feels like the clock of life is on fast forward, time is nevertheless slipping away. I still have a few gifts to purchase, plenty of wrapping to do and have not baked a single treat, but I am venturing on with confidence.

That is, until I remembered my wonderful inlaws will be visiting this weekend.

Now we have to plan a couple of last minute family meals, which is tough considering time is already a factor. Once I started to seek out a solution and my wheels began to turn, it was not long before I remembered our most recent Dickey’s Barbecue Pit experience, and I knew that was our answer.


With 500 locations across the country, the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit menu includes a delicious selection of meats including beef brisket, pulled pork, ham, polish sausage, turkey and chicken, which are all slow smoked over hickory wood on-site daily at every location. Dickey’s extensive homemade side options such as potato salad, baked beans and macaroni and cheese make a mouthwatering addition to any meal. From combination plates and sandwiches, to kids meals and catering options, there is something scrumptious for everyone.


As many of you already know, we are big fans of Dickey’s Barbecue Pit and totally love their food, especially for large parties or gatherings, and there are plenty of those during the holiday season, which is why a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Holiday Feast ($109) is a fabulous idea!

This amazing spread starts by selecting from one of four holiday meat selections including spiral cut ham, smoked turkey, Cajun fried turkey, and for the first time prime rib! Like their signature turkey and ham, the new prime rib from Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is pre-smoked and seasoned with a special spice blend, making an easy and unexpected holiday treat to wow your guests. Along with your meat selection, the Holiday Feast also includes a large tray of stuffing, a large tray of baked potato casserole, a large tray of green beans with bacon, gravy and a dozen rolls. The ideal meal for a hungry holiday crowd.


We were able to try our own Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Holiday Feast last weekend when we invited family over to see our newly completed home renovations and I fell in love before I even had a chance to take a bite! Since the Holiday Feast can be ordered online or by calling the nearest Dickey’s location, customers can easily select the pick up day and time that fits with their schedule, and being that this particular spread is not precooked, making sure the food is hot and fresh for guests is extremely easy.

Once my husband brought home our Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Holiday Feast, it was time to get things cooking. Detailed heating instructions are provided during pickup and we found them quite easy to follow. While all of our sides and rolls came out perfectly cooked after their suggested cook time, our prime rib was unfortunately far from finished. It required far longer than the instructions suggested, but once it was complete, the fabulous food more than made up for the delay.

Every single bite was beyond delicious!


The prime rib was flawless and exactly medium rare. It was amazingly flavorful with a killer outside crust, super juicy and moist and almost tender enough to pull apart with a fork. While it impressed our entire family and definitely served as the star of the feast, the wonderful sides can not be overlooked. Each one was outstanding and offered the perfect compliment to our meal. I am not usually a stuffing person but the one from Dickey’s Barbecue Pit was great. It involved cornbread, included yummy chunks of onion and celery and had the perfect texture. The baked potato casserole had the rich flavor of bacon and was total comfort food, and even the kids loved the green beans with bacon. As usual, Dickey’s buttery rolls were a crowd favorite as well.


I also need to mention the amount of food included with the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Holiday Feast. We initially fed seven adults and two children, many of which had seconds, and we sent everyone home with plenty of leftovers. Our family of five had leftovers again for dinner the following evening, I had leftovers for lunch on day three, and on day four there was still enough prime rib to chop up and use in some tasty tacos.


Whether you need quality food in a holiday hurry, or are wanting a bit of barbecue to change the seasonal stride, check out Dickey’s Barbecue Pit.
