The Guinness World Record Book lists it as the “largest commercially available hot dog.” It’s actually called “The Big Hot Dog” and is 16 inches long, four inches in diameter — and weighs seven pounds.

It’s made of 100 percent beef and pork.

The History Channel featured it on its “Modern Marvels: Supersized Foods” episode. The product is served in burger-style slices, and each dog boasts about 40 servings.

You can order your own at Gorilla Tango Novelty Meats for $99.
