One, two, three, four, I declare a Weenie War!
No grill or campfire would be complete without the legendary hot dog, a staple of American outdoor cooking for decades. Kids love ‘em, adults love ‘em, they go great with anything or nothing at all. Whatever you call them – wieners, frankfurts, hot diggety dogs – help us recognize this truly tubular meat by taking part in the Weenie War, a ten-minute hot-dog-eating contest back by popular demand. Here’s how we give these dogs their day:
When the bell rings at ten minutes, each empty tray will count as five hot dogs eaten, along with however many dogs are missing from the final tray. Any hot dog only partially swallowed will not count towards the total.
For those Competing in the all-day event, fear not! All hot dogs consumed in the Weenie War will count towards your overall total. It’s obviously impossible to weigh every single dog in this event, so we’ll weigh one dog in bun beforehand. If it weighs three ounces, and you eat ten of them in the contest, you get thirty ounces added to your running total.
Winner gets a trophy and a prize that we’ll announce closer to the date of the Meat Destroyer.
