Fans of the legendary barbecue restaurant The Salt Lick (which has national notoriety, thanks to food shipments and national TV and print coverage) are able to experience its classic recipes at home and learn about the history of the celebrated Texas institution in the upcoming publication of The Salt Lick Cookbook: A Story of Land, Family, and Love by owner and pit master Scott Roberts and Jessica Dupuy.

The book is more than a collection of barbecue fare made famous by the restaurant as it contains an array of closely guarded family recipes that until now have never been shared. It is a story of over four generations of the Roberts clan, their love of each other, and the food that brought them together over the years. For The Salt Lick Cookbook, Roberts painstakingly chose the best family recipes and the stories behind them to share with the world, from his grandmother Roxie’s biscuits to his mother Hisako’s catfish and hush puppies.
