This is a user submitted challenge, thanks Nick.
A Sheffield based restaurant is inviting customers to take the ultimate challenge through a Man vs Food style eating competition.
Smoke Barbecue is challenging diners tackle the four beef patties, pulled pork, brisket, cheese and onion strings in a burger bun with a 500g of fries, slaw, cornbread muffin and a two pint milk shake in
15 minutes30 minutes* or less.
The £25 plentiful platter needs to be eaten faster than the house record with the reigning champion eating for free and taking home a £100 voucher and a photograph on the “wall of fame”. Those who manage to finish the platter in 30 minutes or less get to eat for half price.
Since opening its doors in December Smoke Barbeque has been fully booked every weekend with customers praising the unique experience and authentic BBQ food.
Before opening Smoke, founders Sean Gregory and Duka Nagy travelled to Texas to experience barbeque in its truest form following inspiration from an episode of the iconic TV series Man vs Food. The series follows former chef Adam Richman across America in his search for the biggest and toughest food challenges, often involving the consumption of large quantities of food.
Sean said: “Food challenges are a dime a dozen in America and the trend is creeping into the UK. Our Man vs Food challenge is a fun way to experience an eating challenge and, if you beat the clock, the kudos of getting your picture on the “wall of fame” will cement you in Smoke history!”
I am bit skeptical about whether its possible to eat all that in 15 minutes. I think I’ll let a few other people try first. Its a lot of food and 2 pints of milkshake is a lot. 30 minutes more realistic I think. You can’t really enjoy the food if you have to ram in down in 15 minutes. *
Here are the details if you want to try.
* Update. I saw on twitter that the 15 minutes is actually a mistake and its really 30 minutes.
That actually sounds pretty reasonable now. Probably will nip down one day and try it out.
