Big Texan 72-Ounce Steak # 1
Perhaps there is nothing more American than a big juicy steak. So it should come as no surprise that the famous 72-ounce steak challenge courtesy of The Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, Texas lands the top spot on this list of American eating challenges. This is a long standing challenged, having been in place since 1963 and many have conquered the more than four pound piece of beef. Competitive eater Joey Jaws currently holds the record for completing the challenge managing to do so in 8 minutes and 52 seconds.
