The Salt Lick's famous BBQ pit Courtesy of The Salt Lick Texans pride themselves on the quality of their state's barbecue, and there are plenty of great places to grab some ribs and brisket. According to Scott Roberts , owner of Texas' famous Salt Lick BBQ restaurant, "The United States is the best damn country in the world, and Texas is the best damn state in the country - doesn't that just logically mean that we would have the best damn barbecue? The restaurants are regularly ranked among the best BBQ joints in the country. Over the more than 50 years since then, they've built an entire restaurant around the original pit, adding indoor lighting, running water, and all of the other amenities necessary to a functional restaurant. Roberts' family roots are in South Carolina, Georgia, and Mississippi, but, according to Roberts, their Southern recipes have been "Texafied" over time.
