James Roach (Flotrack Contributor) attempts Emmenecker Challenge
James Roach is well...the man. But this food challenge is completely insane. Over 2k people have taken on the sandwhich challenge and only 7 have ever suceeded. You might recognize the meat pie from "Man vs. Food" an episode inwhich Adam failed miserably. Jethrows BBQ is located right next to Drake stadium and makes the Epic Meal Time Guys look like little hummus and pita chip eating sissies. The Breakdown: Named in honor of Drake college bballer Adam Emmenecker, weighs in at an obscene five pounds.Two halves of JethroÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs huge tenderloin, an 8-ounce Angus steak burger topped with melted cheddar cheese, 8 ounces of Texas brisket, several slices of applewood-smoked bacon, two large buffalo chicken tenders, two squares of fried cheese and a ladleful of white cheddar sauce. and you have 15mins to eat it... and yes, RJ McNichols can make a sick video clip of anything
