Dickies BBQ in Burnsville

JimGrinsfelder | May 2, 2011 10:49 AM

This store is part of a Texas-based BBQ chain (a franchise or corporate-owned I don't know).

The good:

Deep fried okra. It was very crisp on the outside. No bad old-oil flavors. The okra was properly slimy on the inside.

Brisket. It was very tasty.

The mediocre:

The pork spare ribs. Too tender. Despite a smoker in the store, the ribs didn't taste of smoke. To keep it from drying out while they hold it, they wrap it in plastic wrap. Hot meat in plastic wrap isn't a good idea. Not even close to Big Daddy's when Big Daddy's is firing on all cylinders.

The bad:

The pulled pork. Flavorless.
