"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?

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.)

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.
