We have a winner!
Douglas Craiglow of Lancaster retains his title as the Half-Pound Hot Dog Champion. This year he managed almost 2 pounds (1 lb. 14.2 oz) by the 12-minute time limit on July 4, 2012. And in 95+° heat. Whew!
We even got local newspaper coverage: Check out Contestants-savor-flavor-summer-race-eat-most-hot-dogs. Check out the 13 great up-close-and-personal photos that photographer Matthew Berry snapped. You can even order prints if you’d like to have those images on your walls or coffee cups!
Also, if anyone has video of the contest, please contact Leah Good. Our videos did not come out, and we would love to use yours on our website!
Next…we’ll take on Nathan’s little contest held somewhere on the East Coast. Those puny ‘dogs got nothin’ on Lancaster’s mighty weiners!
Thanks to all our contestants! If you want to qualify for next year’s contest, visit us at the Canal Winchester Labor Day Festival, the Amanda Firefighters’ Festival, or the Fairfield County Fair.
