Sean, Cam, another bloke and I went for another round at the Caxton Kilo Challenge. Once again, the steak was right on the money, and a superb session of fatness eventuated. Check out the pics.
It’s on again! The Caxton Kilo will be available during lunch (12-3pm) & dinner (from 6pm). The kilo steak costs $35 & is served with an Idaho potato or chips & salad.
There is a prize pack for those who can conquer the kilo.
Here’s a few pics from some contestants in 2010:
The winner of the first round which was “who can eat there pie the fastest with no hands” was Aaron Simpson from Noosa. He ate his pie (family size) in 3mins 40 secs. John Mc Cormack finished a very close second (pictured, love the shirt!).
The winner of round two was The Deck Bars own Mick Sturdy. He ate 6 and half pies in 5 mins, that’s a pie every 46 secs.
The Deck Bar in Darwin is hosting two pie eating contests this Australia day.
First is a competition to see who can eat a whole pie without using their hands.
The second is to see who can eat the most pies in 5 minutes
Both competitions have a $150 first place cash prize!

The national day is an opportunity to gorge yourself until your heart’s content on a variety of Aussie treats. Competitions around the country stage lamington-eating contests and search for super-slurpers of Vegemite sandwiches. But by far the highlight is the event deciding the best muncher of meat pies.
The race will be on to find the fastest junior and senior pie eater at Gladstone Regional Council’s 2012 Australia Day Family Fun celebrations.
There will be 2 events, juniors aged 10 to 15 years and seniors 16 years and over.
Competitors will vie for a trophy as they confront the challenge to be the quickest to eat five pies in less than four minutes.
The January 26 activities will run from 4pm to 8pm at Millennium Esplanade, Tannum Sands, starting with the give away of 1000 sausages, cooked by Boyne Island Lions Club and assisted by Councillors.
Rides, free face painting and music will keep the crowds amused with stage and roving performances by comedy duo, The Crack Up Sisters.
And how good is this picture? Good old Artie, this just gives him even more of a legendary status!
