WINTER PARK, Fla. – October is National Pork Month, and Sonny’s BBQ Pitmasters has declared Oct. 12 National Pulled Pork Day. As part of the day of pulled pork partying, Sonny’s will attempt to break the Guinness World Records title for the largest serving of pulled pork at its Winter Park location.
"By celebrating this Southern tradition, we hope to encourage people to spend time with family and friends while enjoying this time-honored BBQ technique," said Montana Smith, Sonny's BBQ public relations and events manager. "We invite BBQ fans across the country to celebrate with us on Oct. 12."
