I was making a sales call today in Oroville, CA and stopped in at Big Lem's for lunch. When I first pulled up I was encouraged. It would be considered a whole in the wall, I was expecting good things.

The fact that the large "smoker" in the front yard didn't appear to be even warm at lunch time was a bad sign though. The tri-tip was okay except it was covered (drenched) in sauce. I couldn't taste any smoke.

What was really bad was the the "sides." The cole slaw was weak. Worst of all the beans appeared to be just doctored up pork and beans. Open a can of beans and toss in a little ketchup.

What was really funny was when he brought out my styofoam plate to the table he saw I was reading "Legends of Texas." The look on his face was priceless. A few minutes later a lady came out quizzing me on what I thought and who I was.

All and all it was interested...
