SMUTEYE - Margaret and Major invite their
friends from near and far to gather at the Cox's antique farm and
celebrate the beginning of hog killin' time. This traditional feast was
originally held by Majorís great grandfather and namesake to celebrate his
HOG KILLIN' TIME BARBECUE
our autumn festival (coincidentally near Major's
birthday - don't ask which one!) continues to provide an afternoon of
great food with good friends and fun-filled fall activities.
Wayne Jones will once again head the team of Pig
Roasters, assisted by new lieutenant, John Moore. Roasting will start
Friday evening and is expected to take at least 14 hours. A few brave
souls will spend the night camped around the hickory and oak bonfire that
produces coals for the pit.
The plantation offers hospitality and lodging for
guests assisting Wayne and John. Call if youíd like to be one of the few,
the brave. . .
The pork procession is usually around 2:30 pm on Saturday.
Margaret will continues the tradition and build a fire under the
80-gallon cast iron syrup kettle and create her Fabulous, Four-alarm,
Fifty-gallon chili. Hobson promises to barbecue some more of his special
delicacies. In addition, guests are invited to bring salads, vegetables,
desserts, and beverages to add spice to the banquet.
We will start the bonfire as soon as temperatures allow. Chick
Cleveland has agreed to return to serve as Fire Master, managing the wood
gatherers around the fire pit.
The usual activities of hiking, touring the historic cabins, running in
circles like a maniac and feeding uncountable peanuts to the goats and
horses will all be available.
Valentine wants all her fans to know that she is no longer a
devil-may-care teenager, but a mature, beautiful mare. However, I'd
still be careful if I were you!
