The biggest sausage in the world
World's largest sausage.
Cumbrian pig breeder Gary McClure has established the record for the world's largest circular sausage.
The record-breaking Cumbrian sausage was 3.3 metres in diameter and weighed 135 kilograms, and was made to a traditional recipe with 90 percent locally-reared pork.
Arranged on a huge griddle custom manufactured by Handmark Engineering Co Ltd of nearby Barrow-in-Furness, it took 12 people to hoist the sausage ring onto a tractor-drawn trailer for the two-mile journey to the market square.
There it was cooked, officially declared a Guinness World Record, and eaten by the assembled community.
McClure breeds free-range Middle Whites and Lops on a 13-acre site on the outskirts of Broughton-in-Furness.
He supplies pork cuts, bacon, hams and a range of sausages through Woodland Free Range Meats.
