This week, a friend of mine Dave Cash posted on his Facebook page that he was interviewed by Travel Channel star Casey Webb while Webb was in town filming his series "Man Vs Food".

Dave was having lunch at Brawler's Back Alley Deli and that is when he ran into Webb and the crew of "Man Vs Food". Brawler's has a special food challenge that anyone can take a shot at taking down.

It is called  The "Brawler's Back-Alley Barrel Sandwich Challenge" The Sandwich is a brisket sandwich that is topped with tons of other meats and cheeses and weighs in at around 3.5 to 4 pounds of food. You have 1 hour to finish the sandwich to win the challenge.

If you take down the sandwich within the 1-hour time limit you get a free t-shirt, the meal for free, and your picture on the wall inside of Brawler's Back Alley Deli.

If you want to take the challenge yourself, according to the website you need to call Brawler's 24 hours in advance to make a reservation and you can take the challenge weekdays between 11 am and 3 pm.

If you just want to see some else take on the challenge, according to my friend Dave's Facebook post, the episode of "Man Vs Food" is expected to air on the Travel Channel coming up in March of 2022.

Do you think you could beat this 4-pound sandwich Challenge?
