The first heat was the individual sponsored division and the winner was Big Hungry – sponsored by Gig’s Music! He blew away the competition by stuffing down 19 sloppy joes in 4 minutes (there was a tie for second place at 11 sloppy joes). Check out a YouTube video here – posted by Payette Brewing.
Big Hungry had his fill of food and went home with some cash and gift certificates for being the big eater.
The second heat was the team competition sponsored by the breweries. The winners ate for Team Sockeye – congrats to Moots and Yeti! Video can be seen here. They clocked in the most joes eaten as a team combined (but STILL not as many as Big Hungry’s single-handed 19 sandwiches).
One final note – in an effort to minimize waste, Archie’s Place donated the majority of leftover food to the Boise Rescue Mission. There are a lot of people out there who could use some extra help.
