If you’ve been anywhere around Memphis during happy hour, you’ve probably seen the New Wing Order food truck slinging out chicken doused in anything from classic Memphis Buffalo to Midtown Masala sauces. That diverse flavor selection recently caught the attention of professional eater and influencer Randy Santel, who packed his bags and booked a trip to Bluff City for a challenge of spicy proportions.

Santel, currently in the middle of a Southeast food tour, will take on New Wing Order’s Mouth Melter Challenge this evening at Meddlesome Brewery.  But a quick glance at his schedule indicates that he had singled out the Memphis trip as one of his most exciting stops.

"I love Memphis and I’ve done many food challenges all around the area,” says Santel. “Some of our subscribers recommended New Wing Order and their amazing food. We contacted them and they were more than interested in putting together a food challenge for me that will be ongoing. I’ve heard great things about the brewery it will be held at, too, so I’m excited to meet everyone and enjoy some delicious wings!"

Food challenges are par for the course for Santel, who has vanquished more than 850 challenges internationally. For its part, New Wing Order relishes the chance to take him on.

"With the reputation Randy has in the competitive eating world and the massive following he has built, we were definitely honored when his team approached us about the challenge,” says owner Cole Forrest. “It was a chance for us to showcase our award-winning food on an international stage while also doing something fun and outside the box."

The food truck’s Mouth Melter Challenge tasks Santel with diving into a raging inferno, and comprises a Hot Wing Nacho ‘Volcano,’ Loaded Fry ‘Mountain,’ and a Hot Wing ‘Gauntlet.’ Anyone interested in the fiery clash can roll up, grab a Meddlesome brew, and snag a few wings of their own. A meet and greet with Santel starts at 4pm, while the challenge itself kicks off at 5 p.m.
