BBQ For Life!!

Please read the following story and then click on the link below to see the pics!!:


The fellow in the pictures is Larry Earley, He lives about 30 miles from
Orlando, in the very rural community of Okahumpka, just off the Florida
turnpike in Lake County, Florida. He has 20 acres of land and on it, a
few cows and horses. Mostly it's pasture land that is fenced with woods
surrounding him. He is neighbored by a larger cattle ranch.

His neighbor has complained for several years that wild hogs had been
raiding his cattle feeders and salt licks.

Last month he saw what he though was a cow in his pond and went to see if
it was stuck in the mud and would have to be pulled out. When he got close
enough to realize it was a hog, the thing made a charge at him. He had driven
his truck down to the pond and carries a pistol in it (as any Florida redneck
would, and I say that with genuine affection). He got his handgun and when
it came at him again, he shot it twice and killed it.

Wild hogs in Florida usually run from 100-400 pounds with a 400 pounder
being a monster. Because this one had been feasting on grain for several
years it had grown to mamoth size. When Larry took it to the processor it
weighed in at over 1100 pounds! The meat has no wild taste, as it was grain
feed and the Larry is quite the hero. He has fed many fireman and provided
the homeless shelter in downtown Orlando with several meals.

Now that's a 'BIG ASS HOG'.

And that guy 'looks' like he's from FLA.
