Dale Boone sets Hillbilly Homewrecker record

Der Standard of Austria has an article about Jamie Oliver recording an episode of Food Revolution in Huntington, West Virginia, which mentions that Dale Boone now holds the “Homewrecker” hot dog record at Hillbilly Hot Dogs: (Automatically translated by Google)

Just one was here, a young man named Dale Boone, who has broken the record for Schnellmampfen. Three minutes and 45 seconds he needed to cram in the “Home Wrecker” in itself, a hot dog, a foot long and thick as three fingers, covered with onions, peppers, cheese and cabbage, all wrapped in pasty bread. The fifteen-pound hamburger creates as big as the wheel of a small car, not only that they serve only to happy laps. Jamie Oliver? “Good idea,” says Sherry, the waitress. “Unfortunately, he has runtergeputzt us rather than we were clowns.”
