Product Description

Review

"Short of a plate of brisket, The Salt Lick Cookbook: A Story of Land, Family, and Love would surely be the No. 1 item on any barbecue lover's wish list. As much biography as it is cookbook, it covers not just recipes but the history of one of the best-known barbecue restaurants in Texas. It's also a visual stunner, with 350 pages and breathtaking images by photographer Kenny Braun." - Teresa Gubbins, CultureMap Houston "The book's charm lies in the affectionate family history that began when Scott Roberts' great-grandfather bought the land way back in the nineteenth century. The recipes keep memories of a great meal alive"-- Jane Manaster, Portland Book Review

I know where we will be visiting on our next trip to Texas.
This is a lovely book - combination of family history and recipe book. If you like Rick SteinsTravelogues or Tom Kerridges background information to his recipes then you will probably enjoy this book.
One to leave on the coffee table though as it is a large book which was why I purchased it in the UK rather than buying it when we visit the Salt Lick.

So much more than just another BBQ book, you get to understand the spirit of BBQ, a great book showing how BBQ can make it to the highest table, supported by some great pictures.

Beautiful story book, not a cookbook. 20 April 2013
By the hat lady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My brother lived in Teaxs and raves about the Salt Lick.I bought the book hoping to recreate some of the recipes in the book. The description did state this was a behind the scene story of the restaurant with recipes. The book is a beautiful book with gorgeous pictures. However, the recipes were very few. Most of them are so basic i wouldn't even use them. Actually i think most of the recipes shown in the book do not appear to even be served in the restaurant. I hope my brother enjoys the book because of the memories it brings back to him. As far as i am concerned i collect cook books and have a couple hundred of them. This is not one that i would keep in my collection.

Beautifully Illustrated 5 Dec. 2012
By Jamie A Gump - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is both a well written and beautifully illustrated memoir of the author's family, and a solid collection of barbeque recipes. I was able to preview this book, and could not be happier with it. A fascinating story of late 19th century Driftwood, Texas, and a great Hill Country cookbook!

Wonderful but there are errors in some recipes 24 Feb. 2013
By Barbara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I loved this cookbook, which is more than a cookbook but a history of a wonderful part of Texas. Please be sure to check the Salt Lick's website to see corrections to some of the important recipes in the book - the most important correction is to the coleslaw recipe.

BBQ Fanatics 18 Feb. 2013
By Joanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My hubby loved the book, ever since traveling to USA we love the American style barbecuing, we even have 3 BBQ's. So this book was perfect to add to our collection and not too mention we have actually eaten at The Salt Lick in Austin and loved it.

Not exactly filled with recipes 25 Sept. 2013
By KCB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Let me just start by saying that I LOVE the Salt Lick, and I was looking forward to getting this cookbook since I now live in Virginia. It's a great coffee table book, but there aren't very many recipes in there if you hoping for some.
