The World Famous Adam Emmenecker
(As seen on Man Vs. Food) Take the challenge today!
The Missouri Valley Conference's "Most Valuable Player of 2008" loves this sandwich. It's big... "really big"... just like all of those "really big" shots Adam sank in the Bulldog 's magical MVC Championship Season of 2008. Start with our huge pork tenderloin, add an Angus steak burger, top it with slabs of Texas brisket, apple wood bacon, fried cheese and finished with buffalo chicken tenders. Smother this mountain with melted cheddar cheese and white cheddar sauce. Serve it with your choice of side. This could hurt you!
This isn't for everyone... It is porktastic. It is ginormous. We start with our famous tenderloin and add Carolina style pulled pork, house smoked pit ham and a double order of thick slab bacon. Choose your side and then go for it, but remember... we warned you.
