                              "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.
