The Gill's Shindig
August 31-September 2, 1998
Dan Gill check out Rufus who weighed in at 217 pounds dressed!
A lovely fire in the pit and burn barrel making a few hickory coals. (Dave loved this part!)
Rufus went on the pit about 10:30 in the evening. I told you he was an ugly hog!
A beautiful sunrise over Lagrange Creek at 6:00 the next morning.
Miss Rapahanock is docked to the left.
Cooking away in the early morning hours when Dave left to play a golf.
What was left of Rufus when Dave returned from golf about 5:30 in the afternoon!
This is why they call it a Pig Pickin', folks!
Rufus's remains being sent away in the cremation ceremony with a fine Cheerwine toast later that night.
The winning sauce!
