Because being better than everyone else just feels good #FinestGrillathon

Ballpark hot dog

Ballpark brand franks has a serious problem with competition. They don’t like it and they have to always be the best. Well I agree, I’m the same way. Kind of. I mean, I don’t go all the way to setting a new world record to prove I am the best. 

Yeah, they totally set a world record for the Longest Team Barbecue Marathon after grilling for 34 hours and 35 minutes in New York City!

And they didn’t just cook up a bunch of food and throw it away either. 

Finest Grillathon winners, Andrew Battistelli and Susan Bulloch, along with Food Network chef Tyler Florence, grilled more than 3,000 Ball Park Park’s Finest Hot Dogs which were donated to City Harvest, a food rescue organization.

And here is a video of the entire world record breaking event – thankfully, in time lapse :)

Grilling the hotdogs

This is what happens when we try to grill hot dogs after a long day at work while also hosting a sleepover with 2 extra 8 year old girls in the house. Mom and dad took the crispy ones and the kids loved their perfect ones! 

Yeah, we are no grill masters, that is for darned sure!

Lizzie Hot Dog

Everyone still adored them! And you know what I love about Ballpark brand? The ingredients (and also the taste. But the ingredients are what the responsible person in me yells at me care more about). 

They are made with 100% beef and contain no artificial preservatives, no artificial flavors, colors or fillers, and no nitrates or nitrites added either.

So yeah…they definitely earned the “best hotdogs in the entire universe” award from us!
