And now, faithful Eat Salem Readers, here's where you come in. I suggested that we rally the Eat Salem troops and ask Salem what Salem wants. You have a unique opportunity here to sound off and have a say in what kind of BBQ restaurant we get to have in Salem. Do you want a mobile BBQ truck available that can change locations weekly (like Kogi)? Do you want a sit-down BBQ restaurant? Do you want something available in North Salem? South Salem? Lancaster? Keizer? Now is your opportunity to speak up! Ken will be monitoring EatSalem.com and compiling all the feedback here so he can do his best to try and deliver what you want.
Please Note: Constructive criticism and honest opinions will bring the most value to this conversation. "Smokin Swine sucked. I hated it..." will not help, and that kind of comment will probably be removed. On the other hand something like, "Smokin Swine consistently served old crawdads that smelled like my great aunt's feet..." is perfectly acceptable criticism (I don't think they actually had crawdads on the menu).
