VOR Presents… The Longest Hot Dog in the World

Paraguayan cooks prepared the biggest hot dog in the world, with a length of 203.8 metres (668 feet 7.62 inches, to be exact).

******

The Guinness Book of World Records accepted this culinary record.

******

245 chefs laboured on the preparation of the super-hot dog.

******

The action took place in a suburb of Mariano Roque Alonso, which is 18 kilometres (11.2 miles) from Asunción, the Paraguayan capital.

******

The proposal to cook the giant hot dog was the idea of the organisers of the International Agricultural Exhibition held in the town.

******

The total weight of the bun and sausage, which the chefs cooked in a special gas stove, was 265 kilos (585 pounds), 120 kilos (265 pounds) for the sausage, and 145 kilos (320 pounds) for the bread bun.

******

After it was cooked, more than two thousand exhibition visitors were able to get a piece of the weenie free of charge.

******

The previous record was set in the Spanish city of Málaga, that frank-zilla was 150 metres (492 feet 2 inches) long.
