The best part about the 4th of July isn’t going to the lake or beach to drink and catch some sun, but the Nathan’s International hot dog eating contest held every year on Coney Island, NY. Yesterday after drinking and laying by the pool, for a small part of the day, I ended up watching the replay of the contest. A new comer to the competitive eating word Joey Chestnut gave Kobayashi a run for his money. But in the end Kobayashi was to much. So as a solute to the great eaters of the world I only ate beef yesterday to celebrate the 4th. I had smoked beef brisket for breakfast, hamburger for lunch and a steak for dinner, and now I am going thru some kind of red meat withdrawals since my last hit of beef. Kobayashi set a new world record yesterday with 54 hot dogs, so I want to know how many hot dogs you think you can eat in 12 minutes. I am going to guestimate that I can probably put down some where between 10 and 15.
