A 260 pound pork burger was cooked at World Pork Expo on Thursday by Gary Vinsand, owner of Vinny’s BBQ in Dakota City, Iowa on behalf of Hog Slat and the National Pork Producers Council. “I made one two years ago that was 240 pounds of meat, this one’s 260,” Gary said. As far as he’s concerned, that’s a record, even though the Guinness Book of World Records won’t consider it. “They won’t recognize it because they lump it in with a hamburger,” he said.
After a team of heavy lifters carefully slid the monster pork burger on to a 40 pound bun, Gary cut it up to donate much of it to AmeriCorps Vista’s central Iowa shelter. “We serve upwards of 100,000 meals throughout the city in a given year,” said volunteer Amy Olson, who was on hand for the event.
