"By the time you add shredded cheese, chili, sautéed onions and fries, the entire plate could weigh two pounds."

I think I could maybe eat a whole one without toppings, probably not more than half when fully  loaded.  How about other MGoBloggers out there?

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:

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!

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.

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.

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.
