Dale Boone interview in has an interview with pelemeni record holder Dale Boone in its article about tomorrow’s Alaskan pelemeni contest. Boone also discusses his reindeer sausage record that he set in Alaska. The pelemeni record was not set in a continuous 6 minutes but was the sum of three separate rounds.

Transportation Security Administration screeners allowed Boone to walk through security with his 6-foot pelmeni trophy. On the plane, the stewardesses crowed.

“The flight attendant said, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, we have our pelmeni champion that you saw on Regis and Kathy Lee,'” Boone said. “Everyone started cheering.”

Back in Georgia, Boone returned to the Atlanta pelmeni restaurant. The curious 300-pound hillbilly was the conquering hero.

“The Russians had seen me on Russian TV,” Boone said. “They couldn’t believe it. They were shaking my hand. Meeting me in person was like they were meeting the president of the United States.”
