National Pulled Pork Day

National Pulled Pork Day in The Villages FL

Pork. Cooked. Slowly. Celebrate this classic Texas-style dish on National Pulled Pork Day. And bring along your favorite barbecue sauce!

Fun fact: Back in 2016, Sonny’s BBQ set the Guinness World Record for the “Largest Serving of Pulled Pork” — a hefty 2,012 pounds of this dish.

Eventually, Sonny’s decided — along with other BBQ industry members — to designate October 12th as National Pulled Pork Day.

So no matter what your sauce preferences may be — tomato-based, mustard-based, vinegar-based, etc. — just be sure to slather it on to help celebrate.

NATIONAL PULLED PORK DAY ACTIVITIES

  • Throw a pulled pork party
    Whip up some nachos topped with pulled pork, make pulled pork tacos, complete baked potatoes with a dollop of pulled pork, or fill phyllo dough with pulled pork for a fun appetizer option.
  • Host your own pulled pork contest
    Even though you may not set or break a record, it doesn’t mean you can’t hold your own pulled pork games. Throw a pulled pork sandwich eating contest or have a pulled pork cook-off.
  • Donate to a local food shelter
    Reach out to local shelters and find out if you can serve your pulled pork. If it’s a “yes,” get friends and family in on the action, because the more people you can get involved, the more people you can feed.
