Well, you saw him eat a bunch of ribs this summer.

On Weatherman Versus Food, WFFT meteorologist Andrew Logsdon is back- taking on another rib challenge.

He's at Fort Wayne's Rib Room Restaurant or this week's episode of Weatherman Versus Food.

The Rib Room Restaurant has been smoking ribs on State Street in Fort Wayne since the 1950s.

My challenge this week- two full slabs of pork spare ribs- that's four pounds of meat for those of you scoring at home- and a basket of fries in fifteen minutes.

"Now, our rib dinner is two-thirds of a slab, and most men that I wait on have a hard time finishing it. So, you're really- you're going to have your belly full,” says manager Christina Filippou.

Right now, it's empty, and I'm ready for ribs.

Two full slabs.

"Look at all those ribs."

It's time to get sauced.

“Two, one, go!”

These ribs are juicy and saucy and i take it to the bone quickly.

As fast as the ribs disappear, so does the time.

"Two minutes to go!"

The ribs are gone, so let's pound these fries.

"Five, four, three, two, one! Yay!!!"

Not enough time left.

As far as the ribs go- Weatherman wins.

But the entire challenge… let's just call it a draw.

I think eating all those ribs counts as a win for him.

Anyways, if you have any ideas for food challenges you'd like to see Andrew try to beat, send him an email.
