Pulled Pork Eating Contest at Smoke on the Water

Popular Famous Dave's Pulled Pork Eating Contest Returns at Smoke on the
Water - Ribs for the Red Cross Event

Back for seconds, the Famous Dave's Pulled Pork Eating Contest will
feature stomach-to-stomach competition at the Columbia Gas of Ohio Smoke
on the Water- Ribs for the Red Cross event.

Scheduled for Saturday, August 1, the Famous Dave's Pulled Pork Eating
Contest pits ten glorious gluttons in an epic battle to devour delicious
pulled pork.

Each competitor will have ten minutes to eat as much of a three-pound
serving of Famous Dave's pulled pork as they can muster. The winner will
receive glorious amounts of praise, a prize package worth $500 and
perhaps most importantly: a year's worth of bragging rights.

Last year, Mark Griesmer finished his heaping three-pounds of pulled
pork in 9 minutes, 15 seconds. (See attached photo)

How abominable. Why not have a greased pig contest? Fun for the whole family and for a good cause. At least it could get away...
