Cherokee Casino World BBQ Eating Championship

Location: Tulsa, OK
Date: 07-26-2008
Winner: Bob Shoudt

On July 26th, the best speed-eating carnivores in the Milky Way galaxy will gather in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for the Cherokee Casino World Barbecue Eating Championship. With a mouth-watering $10,000 on the line, Cherokee Casino looks to establish itself as a major on the MLE circuit and a favorite in the hearts and minds of our gustatory gladiators. Eaters will go to town on savory barbecued pork tenderloin sandwiches, provided in spades by Broken Arrow’s Runt’s barbecue, until one eater, the World BBQ Champ, raises his fork in glorious victory.

Cherokee Casino is located just outside of Tulsa, which many believe to be a hotbed of untapped competitive eating talent.

Registration for this event is now closed.

All eaters for this event must be at least 21 years of age.
