Crumbs 8/4: Dickey’s Barbecue Pit opens its first Nebraska location

The record attempt is now official, John C. Fremont Days planning committee now holds the Guinness World Record for largest open-face sandwich.  Earlier this month, at the 25th annual John C. Fremont Days in Fremont, event organizers and volunteers attempted the world record. The 1,652-pound SPAM sandwich topped the previous Guinness record holder by 315 pounds. The previous record was a barbecue pork bun weighing 1,337 pounds.

Speaking of barbecue, Dickey's Barbecue Pit opens its first Nebraska location in Lincoln at 2662 Cornhusker Hwy. This is the first location for Dickey's in Nebraska and the first franchise for Robert Carter who plans to open three more in the area. The first Dickey's Barbecue opened in 1941 in Dallas, Texas and the company is still family owned and operated.
Big Mama’s sweet potato pie ice cream is on sale at the Hy-Vee Store at 14591 Stony Brook Boulevard in Omaha. Big Mama’s Kitchen and Catering has been featured on Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives, The Travel Channel and recently on the Sundance Channel in Ludo Bites America.
