At home in Darfield, in the idyllic North Thompson valley, Salt Lick BBQ is a food truck serving up gourmet bbq, featuring local, sustainable, and homegrown ingredients.

Home: Welcome


Salt Lick BBQ opened in 2020 and is owned and operated by husband and wife team Dustin and Lena Rainer. Dustin is a third generation farmer and rancher in the North Thompson valley. He has been farming ever since he could walk and developed an unrivalled passion for great food throughout his life. Raising and growing his own food, and providing his family with fresh, home-cooked meals has been a privilege for Dustin for a long time now. Building their own food truck “from scratch”, and serving their own homegrown beef, pork and chicken as well as vegetables as the season allows, gives Dustin and Lena the opportunity to serve more people and introduce them to fresh, homegrown food that is smoked, cooked and prepared with love.

Check out this article about us on Castanet Kamoops. We are proud to serve you homegrown and local food. Check out our Locations & Dates section to find out when we will be out and about again!


We have limited catering spaces left for 2023! Book 'em up before they're gone.

We love providing people with great food. It is the reason why we got into the business in the first place.

A new year, a new season with our food truck and catering business. Next to our regular scheduled days we are happy to provide you with excellent catering.

We have everything to set up a beautiful buffet for your event and can serve if requested. We do not provide plates and silverware but can help you source those. As much as we would love to come to your event with the food truck, this is often not feasible for us, but if its local, lets talk!

Please click the button below for our catering menu. We are more than happy to try and accommodate your wishes and branch out from our regular menu. If we have it, or can source it locally, we will most likely be able to cook it for you. Just send us an email and we will figure something out that will work for you.

We thank you for your business and continued support. It would not be possible without fantastic customers like you!
