Big Daddy's Smokehouse Sports Grill will host its inaugural burger-eating contest beginning at 6 p.m. June 20.

The Big Daddy Burger consists of a special Big Daddy patty, which is almost a full pound before it's cooked, special Big Daddy seasonings, bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato and pickles.

"If people eat the entire plate during the contest there will be five pounds of food," said Al Ames, vice president of happiness at Big Daddy's.

Whoever gets their "trough of food," as Ames calls it, finished the fastest is going to be declared the winner.

Sponsored by L.A. Boxing in Ahwatukee Foothills, the winning eater will receive a free six-month membership, which General Manager Dustin Hayden said is a $400 value. The winner will also have his picture displayed on the Big Daddy's Wall of Fame in the restaurant, located at 3941 E. Chandler Blvd.

There is a $20 entrance fee to be a contestant, and all of the net proceeds will be given to Phoenix Children's Hospital.

"It's just a way of letting the community know ‘Hey, we're out here,'" Ames said.

For all those not competing, Big Daddy's is also offering drink specials, including $2 domestic bottles, $1 Jello shooters, $4 Patron margaritas, $5 Absolut martinis. For $5, customers can also get food specials, including a basket of zucchini sticks, a half order of coconut shrimp or a half order of bacon wrapped chipotle cream cheese stuffed shrimp. A dozen of Big D's smoked wings are $6, and the big UFC meal, which is a third rack of ribs, 1/4 chicken and french fries or cole slaw is $9.99.

After the contest, Big Daddy's will be showing the Ultimate Fighter Team U.S. vs. Team U.K., which is expected to begin at 7:30.
