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!
