When he wasn’t racking up points for the Drake Bulldogs, point guard Adam Emmenecker loved to eat. He enjoyed a lot of tasty things: pork tenderloin, cheeseburgers, smoked bacon, Texas brisket and fried cheese. All of Emmenecker’s favorite foods have been combined by Jethro’s BBQ into a single sandwich that could feed a family, a monster of a meal called the Adam Emmenecker.
This sandwich weighs in at a plate-sagging four pounds (not including waffle fries). A good idea? Taste this sandwich and be the judge – either way, you won’t be hungry for a week! So what does this sandwich look like and why do people order it? Read on.
