I'm headed down to Atlanta for tomorrow's Krystal Burger Qualifier. There are 7 Qualifiers over 2 months all around the South. The winner of the qualifiers plus the top 3 non winning totals move on to the Championships in Chattanooga.

Those of you in Atlanta, it will be at the Lenox Square Mall at 2pm. Typically these are held at State Fairs so I'm excited to be indoors!

Krystal Burgers are about 5 grams heavier than a White Castle and are sold throughtout the South. I have a minor disadvantage as I cant train with the real thing but Wing Kong and I have worked out a good surrogate.

Two years ago I ate 23 in 8 Minutes. Last year I ate 31. I hope to break 40! this year. Last year 41 was good enough to make the Wild-Card but I'd be surprised if it wasnt at the 50 Burger mark now.

Most of the Pro Eaters agree that this is the best run contest on the circuit, it's really nice that they put alot of care into the food prep as well. Many contests dont bother to serve you the best stuff. Krystal is also putting up $50,000 split up to the finishers at the finals!!

Here's a news release that mentions me!
