The Double Truck Driver Challenge 

Published November 10, 2009 at 5:27 p.m.

I've been preoccupied for years with competitive eating. My favorite rapper is Badlands Booker, the world's Hamentaschen eating champion. I am just about to add an IFOCE (International Federation of Competitive Eating) sticker to my car.

All these years, though, I was just a spectator. On November 1st, that all changed when Jordan Ware – the grill cook at Hen of the Wood – and I went head to head in the first-ever Double Truck Driver challenge at Waterbury's The Reservoir. Picture a crusty boule — usually used as a bread bowl for soups — topped with a two pound beef patty, filled with four ounces of bleu cheese and swathed in six pieces of bacon, two eggs and a salad's worth of veggies. Then try eating the whole thing.

Did Jordan and I prevail? Watch the video and see. Then try not to crave a huge, juicy burger.
