Salt Lake City Weekly competes in sausage contest

The Salt Lake City weekly has a report from the goldenpalace.net Italian Sausage contest held at the Utah State Fair. The author competed in the event and finished last.

Much to my surprise, an IFOCE-sponsored eating competition is exciting. I’ll probably never again be introduced to the heavy beat of Eminem’s 8 Mile theme. The music swelled louder and louder until finally LeFevre, Bertoletti and Chestnut took their places center stage. On the way past, Bertoletti touched fists and wished me “good luck.” I’d need it.
