St. Louis (KSDK) -- It is more than a mouthful you can eat at Busch Stadium.
"This is the Giant Slugger," explains Chef Norman Taylor Jr., a concession chef at Busch Stadium.
A hot dog that is the equivalent to five normal sized dogs.
"It is one pound of hot dog," Chef Taylor says.
It stretches two feet. So it no doubt, draws a little attention and a few hungry challengers.
"I can put away some food, I didn't get this physique by eating all veggies," Today In St. Louis Meteorologist, Scott Connell says.
But this two handed operation that sits snugly in a pound of bread and has more than a cup of chili poured over it is meant to be shared, well at least now that it's actually being served.
"It started as a really bad joke actually," Chef Taylor explains.
Not here, but Texas, however, when you consider St. Louis' history with the hot dog.
"The rumor is and we did a little research here for national hot dog month that St. Louis was the first ballpark to serve a hot dog," Chef Taylor says.
Well, it only made sense to bring the grand daddy of them all, to Busch Stadium.
To do so, they also had to create a carrying case.
Yes, our morning meteorologist still thinks he can devour it.
"It doesn't look like it's that big," Connell adds.
I'm betting his eyes are bigger than his stomach.
You can find the Giant Slugger at Ford Plaza for a limited time. The giant hot dog costs $26.
