Matt Stonie is arguably the greatest competitive eater the world has ever known. In 2015, Matt won the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on the 4th of July, besting Joey Chestnut. But that’s just one notch on Matt Stonie’s belt. Matt Stonie has held competitive eating world records in Peeps (he ate 255 Peeps in 5 minutes), Carne Asada Tacos, Moon Pies, Bacon, and more. This time around he’s eating $255 worth of pork ribs which amounts to over 15,000 calories.
The video above started the same way I often find myself eating BBQ. I get the thought in my head that I could go for some ribs/brisket/pulled pork and within a few hours, I find myself in a pile of sweat with barbecue sauce all over my face and shirt. In order to receive the things you want in life, you must visualize them first. Matt Stonie knows this. I know this. And now you know this.
I’m not suggesting you start thinking about BBQ right now and end up at the smoke shack in 4 hours trying to take down 100 pork ribs like Matt Stonie…But would that really be the worst way for you to plow your way into the holiday weekend? Would it???
