Pork Center Plate at Oklahoma Fairs

It's almost time for fairgoers to get their pork chops. The Oklahoma Pork Council is bringing back pork chops for the State Fair of Oklahoma and Tulsa State Fair this month. Oklahoma Pork Council Executive Director Roy Lee Lindsey said its time to get the pork chop shop all polished up and ready to go.

"We've been out working the last couple days trying to get the cook shack built and the smokers in place and make sure everything is right.," Lindsey said.

The Oklahoma Pork Council will begin serving up pork dishes on opening day of the Oklahoma State Fair on Thursday, September 11 in Oklahoma City, then they head to Tulsa near the end of the month for the Tulsa State Fair. Lindsey said offering pork at these events is a long standing tradition that fair goers have come to expect.

"I can't tell you how many people say I always come and get a pork chop sandwich at the state fair and we're really happy to continue to put that product out there for them," Lindsey said.

When looking at all the fair food options, Lindsey said this is also one of the healthiest options visitors will find. He said a pork chop sandwich because it is two lean pieces of pork loin and bun. They also offer fresh ground pork burgers and a pulled pork sandwiches as well.

This is a limited time offer. The Oklahoma Pork Council cooks up pork for the public at three events annually - the Oklahoma State Fair, Tulsa State Fair and the Oklahoma Youth Expo in March.
