There’s not much doubt about who will win the 2023 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, as to win $1 on Joey Chestnut, you’ll have to put down $40.

The weather on Coney Island today has often been a factor in the past, as some oppressive heat has made just surviving more challenging in the past. But on Tuesday it’s scheduled to be a mostly cloudy 83° with a 24% chance of rain during the hour of the contest. That should bode a bit better for the competitors during the 12 minutes of pork-induced fury to come.
