As you may have heard, we had a fire at our building April 12th that forced us to close. We're working daily to rebuild & make the restaurant even better. We're grateful no one was hurt & that insurance can cover some of our costs. The smoke damage is extensive. We are also required to upgrade several services & utilities in the building. Our wonderful staff need to get back to work doing what they do best.

We miss cooking BBQ for you & we want to reopen as soon as possible, with a goal of May 11th. Every dollar raised goes towards rebuilding & reopening. We don't want a free handout though, we want to serve you the food that you love. For every dollar you contribute ($25 and up), you'll receive it right back in Saltlick gift cards & other perks. Every single donation earns a jar of Saltlick Rub & BBQ Sauce, regardless of the amount. Think of it as a way to book in advance, reserve your favourite BBQ eats, & help us get back on our feet, all at once. We love our Hamilton community, & we humbly ask for your help.

The restaurant is starting to take shape, and the kitchens & prep areas look awesome. We are hoping to be open for you next week.

Thanks to your donations and business we've been able to stay busy with catering and special events.

The campaign will stay active until reopening; were at over 70% of our goal. There are some very interesting rewards & lots of good value from 7 course dinners, BBQ lessons, to party catering. If you can't decide, there's also dollar for dollar matching on gift cards, & everyone gets a BBQ rub.

For anyone that's donated already, we will be in touch about your booking or pickup as soon we reopen.

Thanks again, you all truly made this hard process easier.

First, we need to thank everyone who's participated in this campaign. Whether you donated, shared the link, or let someone know about it, we truly appreciate your support so much.

Next, we want to let you know our reopening has been unfortunately delayed a few times as renovations and repairs have been extended. We're optimistic about a mid-June date for reopening. We will update you here & on social media as soon as we know. The #RebuildingSaltlick campaign will continue until we reopen.

We'd also like to express how awesome it's been to stay busy while the restaurant is closed. Your generousity & interest in the campaign has helped us book catering & events well in to the fall. Our mobile smoker is painted, polished, & ready for your summer BBQ parties. We had our first two services with it at the Hamilton Tiger-Cats pre-season game, & with the Westdale Cinema Group. We're also the proud owners of a new Stumps Smoker, hand made in Georgia, & ready to make its home at Saltlick after the reopening. We're debuting the smoker this weekend at The Mac and Cheese Festival at the Milton Fairgrounds where we're serving up our famous brisket mac and cheese.

Thanks again for your support & generousity. Please continue to help us spread the word, & get back to doing what we love most.
