For those who love to watch unadulterated gluttony on YouTube, Matt Stonie is a revelation. He’s one of the most successful professional competitive eaters around—he’s currently ranked No. 4 by Major League Eating—and he’s accumulated 6 million YouTube subscribers who enjoy watching him imbibe everything from 203 cookies in 30 minutes to 120 Twinkies in six minutes.

In his latest video, Stonie isn’t messing around with all kinds of delectable meat products. He’s got a huge container of barbecue, and he intends to eat every last juicy morsel. It’s from a local restaurant, and it’s called the “Belly Buster.” On the menu, it’s listed in the “Family packs to go” section for a cost of $75. Here’s everything that comes in it.

  • Texas BBQ Ribs
  • Baby Back Ribs
  • Brisket
  • Pulled Pork
  • Roasted Chicken
  • Jalapeno & Cheese Sausage
  • Baked Beans
  • Coleslaw
  • Cajun Fries
  • Mac & Cheese
  • Cornbread Muffins

Now, watch Stonie attempt to put the Belly Buster directly into his own belly.

He starts with the Texas barbecue ribs, moves on to the brisket, and slides his way through the sides and the rest of the meat in less than an hour. He is a man on a mission. He has to overcome the indignity of eating cold fries, he has to suffer through spicier-than-expected beans, and he has to endure the miscalculation of saving the heaviness of the white cheddar bacon macaroni and cheese until the very end.

It looks delicious yet disgusting at the same time. Which is pretty much a way of life for Stonie—and which is why he’s so compelling to watch. For Stonie, this probably beats digging ditches for a living.
