The barbecue restaurant is a local favorite and has been serving up hickory smoked meats for over 45 years. And the big revolver has been holding up traffic outside since at least 2011. Though it has gone through a couple of paint jobs and makeovers in that time. It now has the restaurant’s name, “Hickory House BBQ” written in yellow on its barrel.

They say that Texas brings out the big guns, and this Denison roadside attraction is certainly no exception.
