Tom Lohr has eaten a hot dog at all 30 MLB ballparks and is the author of "Gone to the Dogs: In Search of the Best Ballpark Hot Dog."

Some things are better as duos: Sonny and Cher, Jan and Dean, Castor and Pollux, for example. You know what else is better with a partner? Your hot dog. The frank is the star of any hot dog, so why not feature a twin bill during your next meal? This hot dog includes some very standard dog condiments, but it makes for a meal all on its own thanks to the double dose of dog between the bun.

Not only is it a dare to try to down this amount of meat in one sitting, but the added jalapeños and spicy brown mustard makes for a big dog that bites back. Go ahead and try and eat this one... we dare ya.
