World’s Largest Hot Dog Grilled At Miami-Dade Fair

MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Miami-Dade County Fair-goers got a taste of the world’s largest hot dog on Friday.

According to our news partners  The Miami Herald,  the 125.5 pound hot dog was cooked for three hours on a 100-foot mobile grill that travels from fair to fair.

The naked hot dog weighed in at 51 pounds and the rest of the weight came from a huge bun and gallons of condiments which included mustard, relish, ketchup and sliced onions.

The hot dog was weighed and observed by several witnesses  including a Miami Herald staffer and  retired NFL and University of Florida wide receiver Ike Hilliard.

A notary public signed off on official documents which will be sent to Guinness for review, according to the paper.

The hot dog was later sliced up and sold for $1 to fair-goers. All proceeds from the sales were donated to Miami Rescue Mission.
