    Hey, you took my topic away...LOL. I live in Cary and have eaten there many times. Ask Buffetbuster how he liked them. I have actually got it on DVR and plan to watch it in the morning. Really good hot dogs... of yeah, don't ask for ketchup or mama will tell you to leave.

    Well the record Adam set on his show of 17 hot dogs in under an hour has already fallen. The previous record holder found out about it and came back to challenge. Here is a link to it.

    Oh man, I love that show.  That host is really cool.  Did you see him in San Jose trying to eat the 12 SUPER spicy wings and wait 5 minutes without a drink?

    I love the Habanero fritter episode.  Man, he was in pain.  Those fritters look good, but I know I coudn't pound my way through them in 5 min along with a dish of habanero salsa.   That kind of heat is off the scale.

    The sauce for just those 12 wings had over 6oz of crushed and dried habanero.  It was INSANE!!!  He was crying.  When you were done eating them you had to lick your fingers clean and couldn't use a napkin or drink anything for 5 minutes.  His face and hands were burning.  I don't think I could have done it and I love spicy food.

    I love the restaurant he went to in Denver with the Rocky Mountain Oysters too.  He tried Elk, a GIANT steak, etc...

    I would argue eating like that keeps you young.   (Because you don't live to be old.)

    I wish I had known he was coming to town as I would have shown up at Roast Grill and had a few dogs myself.

    I was disappointed in the rest of the show because he hardly ate anything at The Pit and only covered the biscuit at Time-Out. BTW, that chicken and cheese biscuit he was eating wasn't a chicken breast fillet.... they actually take a regular bone in breast and cut it off the bone to make the biscuit. Years ago you could go in and get a " bag of bones " for a couple of dollars and make a meal from them.

    I enjoy the show as well and think I'll live vicariously through Adam and his challenges!

    I do enjoy the show, but actually prefer the "normal" restaurants he frequents vs. the end of the show monster (or painful) eat. He's a good host, and that just feels gimmicky, and most of the time makes me nauseous just watching his face!  My fave so far was the trip to Katz's in NYC - their pastrami is VERY camera-friendly!

    I'm in the midst of watching it right now and really enjoying it.  The Pit BBQ restaurant in Raleigh looks awesome, I've got to go.  So does that chicken and chedder biscuit in Chapel Hill, I could do without the hot dogs though.  This guy is a great host...I think he's definitely put on a few pounds since he started though.

    The N.C. episode was a lot of fun. By the way, I won the habanero challenge when it was a bit easier and my photo is on the wall of flame. Salvador Molly's is a great place and a fun spot to eat and drink.

    The chicken cheddar biscuit at Time-Out is really good... I thiunk from taking the chicken right off the bone instead of using a fillet.

    Adam (the host) is an eating machine. He can do volume and spice, beyond what most "normal" Americans can handle. He is my hero!

    He had Joey Chestnut in the wrong episode.  Let's see If Adam could eat 17 in an hour, and Joey's record is like 66 in 12 minutes, then how many do you think Joey could eat in an hour.
