Winners will be announced from each contest on Monday. 

But wait, there's more! Patrons will get another chance for the grand prize on September 27 when the Dickey's location will host Roland Dickey Sr., author of the book "Mr. Dickey's Barbecue Cookbook: Recipes from a True Texas Pit Master." Patrons will be able to register that day for another chance at free barbecue. 

“We are proud to open our doors in Rancho Mirage and have the opportunity to serve Texas-style barbecue to this amazing community that we call home,” franchisee Steven Frydrych said in a news release.
