Central Iowa town to cook world's largest pork burger

Posted:

HUMBOLDT (KWWL) -- People in Humboldt will try to grill the world's largest pork burger during its Fourth of July celebration.

Organizers say they're aiming for the pork burger to weigh 240 pounds, be 40 inches in diameter and 10 inches thick. A special 42-inch bun will be baked, and a special grill will be used to cook the burger.

The burger will take about 12 hours to fully cook. Grilling is set to begin July 3.

When it's done, the burger will be cut up and shared with those at the Independence Day celebration.

The Downtown Humboldt Enrichment Group is organizing the event and hopes the burger is worthy of the Guinness Book of World Records.
