Competition Salutes National Hot Dog Day

Every dog has its day and Wednesday was the day for the hot dog. It was National Hot Dog Day.

In honor of the noble tube-steak, B&B Classic Hot Dogs hosted a dog-downing competition.

Eight competitors tackled the massive three-and-a-half pound chili dogs as a special guest took on a different challenge.

Professional competitive eater, Molly Schuyler, ate B&B's five-and-a-half pound DogZilla.

Molly said, "I never heard about National Hot Dog Day until this year so it's actually pretty cool to even have a day for hot dogs. So I think that's awesome. That's pretty cool."

Molly finished her hot dog in just 2 minutes, 43 seconds.

The winner of the amateur group, Logan Kelly, took 12 minutes, 15 seconds with a dog two pounds lighter than Molly’s.
