“Owning multiple Dickey’s Barbecue locations gives me the opportunity to share the tasty experience of Texas-style barbecue throughout San Joaquin County,” said multi-unit owner, Rod Cockrum. “Californians just can’t get enough of Dickey’s authentic barbecue with meats smoked low and slow on-site every day.”

Cockrum owns Dickey’s Barbecue locations in Lodi and Stockton. This marks his third location and his fourth location will open in North Stockton on October 16 and will feature a visit from Mr. Dickey on October 17. The new Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Manteca is located at 1446 Hulsey Road and the phone number is 209.239.2333.
