Pork shortage to hit in 2013

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

According to a British pork farming group, we could be in for a worldwide shortage of bacon and BBQ because of the drought. In a city where an entire week is dedicated to cooking BBQ, you can imagine what kind of news a pork shortage might have on the general populace.

 "It's a very important part of my life," says Memphian Mark Glenn who claims he'll pay more if there is a shortage.

Fortunately for the pork lovers of the Mid-South, the purveyors of pork are just as dedicated to keeping pork on a fork.

"Central goes through a tremendous amount of pork…and no matter the cost the price we will go find it for our people. We love our people," says Nicolas Brooks with Central BBQ.

The pork shortage is expected to hit in 2013 with supply at its lowest since 1975.
