Chuckwagon Barbecue Opens Summer Stand in Dexter

The weekend barbecue stand will be open on Sundays through September next to the Dexter Mill.

It's Sunday morning and you're feeling a little peckish after church.

Don't worry. Just mosey on down to the tracks by the and meet up with the Hickman Hotel gang at their Chuckwagon Barbecue stand and let Danny Murphy and his team fill you up with great barbecue.

Along with ribs, pulled pork or sausage, there's a variety of side dishes including baked beans, cole slaw, and apple cobbler. Rolls are freshly delivered each Sunday morning from Zingerman's Bakehouse.

This "Taste of Texas" will be available every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through September. The 1859 chuckwagon can be found down by the freight house behind the mill or right up by the porch if it's raining.

The business started as a hobby for Murphy, Ed Welch and Scott Thomas as part of their interest in reenactment groups. The trio catered dinners before expanding to Dexter. You'll see their signs near the Mill, and once you've tasted their food, you won't have any trouble finding your way back.

Just bought a pound of brisket... just excellent! Part of it never made it home.. Don't forget the sauce - it is perfection!

I love the way they cook the ribs - the rub is awesome, and the bark on the ribs gives em that wonderful bbq texture that only comes with lots of time and care. Great sauce too, with real chunks of various fruits.
