Fireman Bob's Texas Red " HOT " Hot Dog Sauce

When I was in high school, there was a " hot dog " place... If You could eat enough Texas Red Hot's, as they were called ( and still are ) and " broke " the record, Your name would be held in High Esteem. At least for us high school kids... Lol !

Well, one night we ended up in that place and I broke the record, and as far as I know, it still stands as the record...

I finished that night eating 68 Texas Red Hot's...

By the way... That's Bun, Hot Dog, and Texas Red Hot Sauce...

The drinks were extra.... Lol !

Sincerely,
The " Skinny " Fireman
