Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Layton, Utah

It is no secret that I love barbecue and I will take every opportunity I can to eat barbecue and try barbecue joints that I haven????????t eaten at before. This past weekend I was in the Davis County area watching motocross at the Legacy Events Center in Farmington and supporting the Nozzletee motocross team. On my way home I decided to find a place to get a bite that I hadn’t tried before. I was hoping for a hometown burger joint, but ended up driving by a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit.

Somewhere in the back of my mind, I knew that this was a chain that originated in Texas, one of the hotbeds for excellent barbecue. So, without much effort, I turned my car into the parking lot and I went in to order.

The restaurant was clean and looked familiar. Many barbecue restaurants have a similar look and feel. Nothing fancy, but clean and simple. The menu ranges from sandwiches to plates with a choice of brisket, pulled pork, turkey breast, chicken breast, ribs, and sausages.

My choice today was a 2 meat plate with sliced brisket and spicy cheddar sausage. Side were slaw and fried onion tanglers with the spicy barbecue sauce.

As a personal choice, I should have gone with the polish sausage. I decided that I really don’t like to have small chunks of cheese embedded in my sausage. It tasted fine. It really is a personal preference. I was a bit disappointed with the brisket. It was cooked to perfection, but it didn’t seem like it was smoked. There was not a definite “smoke ring” through the meat and no real smoky flavor. It looked good and tasted fine, just not what I was expecting from a Texas barbecue joint.

The creamy coleslaw and the fried onion tanglers were good and I would order each of them again. The big surprise was the spicy barbecue sauce. I loved the barbecue sauce. It was a light sauce with extreme flavor. It isn’t for the faint of heart. I was breaking a sweat while eating, but the flavor was there to go along with the spice.

If you are in the Layton area and have a need to get some barbecue, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is located at 2056 N Hill Field Road, Layton, Utah (www.dickeys.com).
