Ode to a Pig Roast

8th Annual Hog Killin’ Time BBQ
By Invitation Only

SMUTEYE - Once again this year, Margaret and Major’s friends from near and far will gather at the Cox's antique farm to celebrate the beginning of hog killin' time. The traditional feast was originally held to celebrate Major Cox’s birthday.

Today, Major avoids discussing "birthdays," but this autumn festival continues to provide an afternoon of good friends, great food, and fun-filled fall activities.

Wayne Jones and Bill Honey will once again head the team of Pig Roasters. Roasting will start Friday evening and is expected to take approximately 14 hours. A few brave souls will spend the night camped around the hickory and oak bonfire that produces coals for the pit.

The bar at the Pavilion-Guest House will be stocked and open to guests assisting Wayne and Bill with their duties as head roasters. Call if you’d like to be one of the few, the brave. . .

On the day of the roast, Chick Cleveland has agreed to return by popular demand to serve as the Fire Master.

In addition to the pig, Margaret will once again build a fire under the cast iron syrup kettle and create her Fabulous, Four alarm, Fifty gallon chili. Plus, many guests will bring salads, vegetables, desserts, and beverages to add to the banquet.

Bring a large appetite!

Y'all come see us! - Major Cox

Extra! Extra! You’re Invited!

Prior to the Pork Procession, Tom Davies promises to hook the trailer to the tractor, load it with guests, and tour the South 40.

The horses will be happy to see all, (especially if bearing edible gifts). But Margaret can’t allow riding (other than a few pony rides). The crowd over-excites them.

Remember, this is an outdoor event. Be sure to wear casual clothes, comfortable shoes, and bring a jacket or extra sweater to complement the brisk autumn air.
