Here’s a VFYT photo sequence for your consideration. It’s a bit unconventional, because it’s not actually from the table, but more so on the way to it.

In what has become a sort of unofficial college reunion, some friends and I (and our growing families) get together on Labor Day weekend to roast a 200 lb. hog and eat a goodly portion of it.

The hog is raised & roasted by our host (and college classmate), Caleb Ragland of Shady Rest Farm in Hodgenville, Ky.

Nothing beats farm to table when the table is on the farm!

Here’s the shot that precedes the VFYT. Man, I can smell the sweet smoke!:
