On April 27, 2017 Smithfield officially set the first-ever Guinness World Records title for the Largest Grilling Lesson with 336 participants at Arrowhead Stadium. Nine-time World Champion pitmaster Chris Lilly and Weber grillmaster Kevin Kolman led grilling and tailgating fans through two recipes featuring Smithfield Prime Back Ribs and Roasted Garlic & Herb Marinated Fresh Pork Chops. Kansas City Chiefs’ Defensive End and fellow barbecue fanatic, Chris Jones, also joined the one-hour long lesson which showcased the ease, convenience, and versatility of grilling fresh pork.

The requirements consisted of at least 250 participants actively taking part in the lesson at a single venue for a minimum of 30 minutes using the same equipment and ingredients. Arrowhead Stadium is also the home of the Guinness World Records title for the Loudest Crowd Roar at a sports stadium, making this yet another successful record attempt of which the Kansas City Chiefs have been a part.

In addition to making world history, more than 100 lucky grillers walked away with a free Weber 22″ kettle grill or Weber iGrill Mini, while others received commemorative Grizzly Grip Rock cups, giveaways, and coupons. The festivities continued with on-site entertainment from KC Wolf and Chiefs’ cheerleaders, and culminated with a post-lesson tailgate, where all enjoyed delicious Smithfield Fresh Pork ribs and chops hot off the grill.
