Citizens of the world, we come with great news: Major League Eating is proud to announce that the 8th Annual Smoke’s Poutinerie World Poutine Eating Championship has been added to our 2017 schedule of sanctioned eating contests. Major League Eaters are warmly encouraged to sign up to compete in the signature event on the MLE calendar.

Each and every year since its inception, the Smoke’s Poutinerie World Poutine Eating Championship has proved the ultimate test of man versus man versus woman versus woman versus French fries, curds and gravy. This is a true test of power and capacity; this is not a finesse event, it would be true to say. At the 2016 Championship, the greatest eater of all time—one Joey Chestnut, like you don't know—set a new World Record when he ate 25.5lb of Smoke's Poutinerie poutine in 10 minutes. The more you think about that number, the more impressive it gets. Ponder it some more in the quiet hours in your day.

Do you dare take on the best eaters in the world in this marquee event? Do you wish to enjoy the finest poutine in all the land in professional-grade quantities over 10 minutes of sanctioned competition? Do you think you can best Chestnut's 2016 record? Then sign up today for a chance to compete against the world's best! The 8th Annual Smoke’s Poutinerie World Poutine Eating Championship is soon upon us. At the table or in the crowd—don't you ever miss it!
