There will be no competitive eating pros in Sheboygan this year. On the Fourth of July, Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest in New York City was a showdown between two of the top competitive eaters — Joey Chestnut and Takeru Kobayashi — but they won't be facing off again this year in Sheboygan's brat contest. Johnsonville, which sponsors Sheboygan's Brat Days in August, will not be holding a world championship eat-off. A spokesman for Johnsonville Brats says a change in company strategy led to the decision. He says just like they have for years, they will be holding a brat eating competition with local participants.
