A hot dog joint in New York tried to beat the Guinness World Record for largest hot dog.

Feltman’s of Coney Island, the eatery credited with introducing Coney Island to the hot dog in 1867, said the potential world’s largest hot dog measures 5 feet long and 2 feet wide and sits on a 5-foot bun created by Michael’s Restaurant of Brooklyn.

The hot dog was cut into smaller portions to be sold for $10.

Proceeds from the giant hot dog will be donated to the Headstrong Project, a non-profit that provides mental health care to combat veterans.
