Named after the Missouri Valley Conference Most Valuable Player of 2008, the Adam Emmenecker Challenge is insane. If you like BBQ and you like a shit ton of food packed into sandwich form then this is the challenge for you. Adam Richman from Man v. Food couldn’t even tackle this beast and when it comes to sandwiches he’s usually right on the money.
