Gravy Brown has been training and preparing for the 94th Annual Nathans Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest, which will bring the best of the best competitive eaters out to Coney Island, New York, on Saturday (Jul. 4).
Though Brown dishes that training at home is frowned upon by organizers of the contest since there are no EMTs present in case the eaters choke, hes still been practicing like crazy to make sure he places high in the legendary event.
He says, Im pretty much ready. Its ridiculous to think people get to where theyre at without training.
Brown does simulated runs at home by cooking up hot dogs and scarfing as many down in the allotted time, and thats about it as far as strategizing.
He says, A lot of people talk about techniques, but really its just shoving food down your throat.
