I remember many different 4th of July traditions…fireworks, grilling, going to the beach, and toasting marshmallows just to name a few. One that I’ve become accustomed to throughout the last few years is the annual Nathan’s July 4th Hot Dog Eating Contest. Now, I’m not one to sit and chow down 66 hot dogs in 12 minutes, but there’s something so intriguing about the sport that over 1.8 million people tuned into watch the event in 2007!
After realizing that there’s an entire sport behind the hot dog venue on July 4th, I wanted to learn a little more about its history and find other competitive eating records. I was able to dig up a module called EatFeats. It’s actually quite interesting as you get the insider pass to the world of competitive eating with news, an events calendar, and my favorite, a database of all past contests and results you can add to your My Yahoo! page. Makes me hungry just thinking about it!
Tune into the blog later this week for grilling recipes and tips on preparing the perfect 4th of July meal.
