The 72 oz steak eating challenge was invented by Bob (RJ) Lee in Texas in 1962 at Amarillo’s Big Texan Steak Ranch. The rules were simple; you could not get up during the contest or have anyone help you eat, you did not have to eat the fat & if you got sick, you were out. The world record is 20 minutes.
