The small town of Bean Station, Tennessee, is spilling the beans on their attempt to break the Guiness World Record for bean baking at their 11th Annual Harvest Pride Day Festival, taking place October 20-21.
Theyll be cooking up 600 gallons of pinto beans in 16 hours in a specially made six-foot steel pot, beating out the previous record of 350 gallons set by the townies of Horace, North Dakota.
And according to festival spokesman Steve Cason, their audacious attempt is a salute to their town.
He says, I suppose breaking the record has become an homage to the town. We might even make a monument out of the pot we use to cook the beans.
And with all the gassy goodies up for grabs, Cason is ready for the inevitable backfire.
Says Cason, I expect there will be a noxious cloud over Bean Station, but we can handle it.
