OT - Texas Rangers Ballpark to offer 1 Pound $26 Hot Dog
Just when I thought ball park food couldn't get any more expensive.
You don't need to budget your money, because if you eat that thing, you have about fifteen minutes to live . . . .
and I'm still not sure how good that looks.
Even for a hillbilly that thing looks disgusting.
Everything is bigger in Texas...
I live in Texas (well, when I'm not stuck in Afghanistan) and this dog has nothing on the monstrosity known as "The Big Unit" I encountered at Cooperstown in Phoenix. Yes, I did finish it. The poop the next day was nothing short of rapturous. I'll let the photo speak for itself:
You are the wind beneath my wings.
Seriously I am impressed.
Thank you for posting a photo of your hot dog. The text in your post indicated that the photo would provide evidence of a far more unpleasant part of your story.
Does this look about right?
has anyone ever attempted the fifth third burger @ a whitecaps game in Grand Rapids?
I've never attepmted it by myself but I have shared it before. The concept is really good, but the burgers are REALLY overcooked. The flavors involved really mesh well together, but it would be tough to eat the whole thing if only because of the dryness associated with the burger patties. You make it with real hamburgers that are cooked to perfection and it would be GREAT!
My brother-in-law ate on in 17 minutes. He's like 160 lbs.
that is ridiculous. that thing is massive!
....that's what she said
I must say that looks amazing
Imagine being so culturally impoverished. You can't make up for style with sheer weight.
We're talking about ballpark food here. Imagine if people drew conclusions on the restaurant culture in Ann Arbor based on Michigan Stadium cuisine.
Imagine having no sense of humor.
It probably comes with a portable defibrillator.
....the different stages of eating that hot dog appear below:
I could easily eat that whole thing in 3 - 4 innings. Anyone care to make a wager?
Are you going to buy our ticket/flight to a Texas Rangers game so we can watch you do it?
If that is the case, then yes I bet you $25 you can't do it
I could eat it faster. Give me 10 minutes.
...but the real question is, "How fast can Kobayashi eat it?"
Not to mention your one 1/5th portion would be just under 5 inches, as the whole thing looks to be 24 inches. Seems awkward to eat.
Just imagine how much you would have to spend on beer to wash it all down with.
I find the tape measure along the length of the weiner very helpful.
I dont feel good after eating one hot dog. I can imagine not throwing up after this.
I'm surprised it doesn't come deep fried.
I could do it. I have devored the Arena's two lb burger in 15 minutes. Game on.
I weigh 185 and I could eat that and a burger.
The problem is not fitting the hot dog in your stomach. The problem is fitting it in your tiny seat with no leg room without spilling mustard all over yourself and your neighbor.
Is the massive poop you would need to take in the ballpark bathroom . . . .
I'd destroy that thing.
I'll take 2.
I want to go to there
26$ is a bit much.
At my local minor league team (Akron Aeros) they brought in a chef who came up with some outrageous food items. They have a dog called 3 Dog Night which is a huge basket of a hot dog, inside a bratwurst, inside a kielbasa and then smothered with sauerkraut and stadium mustard. It's only 7$ also. Delicious.
bacon makes everything better.
I try to stay away from processed meat. Let alone whole pound foot long processed meat.
2 pounds? Whatever.
The Nationals are introducing an eight-pound burger this year, the "Strasburger".
Nothing like watching a crappy home baseball game washed down with 8 pounds of gluttony.
Nationals are going to be surprisingly good this year.
that buys one, any part that is in my seat belongs to me. Be prepared to defend that dog. Mustard only please on my end.
I'm just picturing the two dogs eating the same spaghetti noodle....except, this time, it's two grown men on opposite ends of the weiner.
I didn't need to picture.
it's two grown men on opposite ends of the weiner.
I'm pretty sure I saw that DVD for sale somewhere.
In other news, you don't need to screw around with all this. Just get yourself a package of natural casing dogs from Dearborn Ham Company. Deep-fry until ends are split and browned crispy. Top with hot dog chili (Rudy's, Tony Packos, or Skyline in a pinch), diced onion and saurkraut.
If you can stop eating at under a pound, I'll be impressed. (Food of the gods.)
I once ate three chipotle burritos in 30 mins.
I ain't skurred.
...includes a 12 oz miller lite and costs $49.
Of course it would be a Miller LITE. Gotta watch those calories!!!!
I lived in Arlington for two years...watched many a game at Ranger ballpark. I loved the place!
They had it at Stan's Wagon Wheel in Midland, now located in Missouri. It was 4lbs of meat, with another 3lbs of condiments, about the size of a 16" pizza. You got $100 if you could finish it in one hour, or pay $20 if you didn't. I'm a 300+ lb guy, and after 15 minutes, i only had 1/4 of it done and couldn't eat another bite. I gladly paid the $20 and enjoyed one of the best burgers I've ever had for the next three days. They also have a 72 oz steak that would cost you $35 if you didn't finish.
