I am spending Labor Day Weekend in the Oklahoma panhandle and Amarillo, TX!! Since the Travel Channel’s Chowdown Countdown in 2010, I have been dreaming of trying the Big Texan 72 oz steak challenge! 4.5 pounds of steak plus sides in 1 hour! I have been known to put it away, but this is just on another level! Luckily, I had Hubs and his two best friends from college with me as moral support!! I still think it’s wussy that 3 big men didn’t join me! I talked a lot of trash on them! 😉
It literally hung off the plate on both sides!!!
I am naturally a super slow eater, so I knew time would be my biggest obstacle. I tried my best to stay focused on the clock behind me and git r dun!!!
Did I do it????
NO. 😭 I put away over 30 oz of steak, some salad, and the dinner roll. And I didn’t stop eating until the very end!! I was just too slow!
Am I still a winner??
Absolutely! I ate 2 pounds of steak and some of the sides at 125 pounds!! Though I had to fork over 72 bucks, it was well worth it for the experience! Only 1 in 10 do it! I was with two other men, one being exceptionally large, and they did not do it either! I still feel awesome that I went up there (literally, because you are on a stage in front of the whole restaurant) and did my best!! You best believe I will be back after some training!
It’s not over, Big Texan!!! #illbeback
