Southern American Realism

"Firing The Meat"

 My cousin Wayne, feeding the Hickory slabs to the old barrel which has a grate in it letting the coals fall through and be used to fire the barbeque shoulders. This is a slow 15 to 20 hour process. I was there doing some detail sketches and drawings when Wayne ask me if I was finished yet...and I said yes. He stepped over to open the door and I snapped a photo of him. I knew he wouldn't ever let me if I ask him to be in the photo. He didn't know he was in the painting until he seen it a few months later. I think this was painted in about 1984 or 1986. They've been doing it the same way for 32 years and Wayne still does his part every Friday.
