A group led by Louisiana lawyers set the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest pot of gumbo.

Arlen Braud and Michelle Gallagher set the record at 5,800 pounds of gumbo during Major League Eaters’ World Record Gumbo Eating Competition on November 8 in southern Louisiana according to The Courier.

Gerald Danos said it took about 700 hours to make the pot which was later filled with 1,500 pounds of shrimp, 500 pounds of crabs and 40 gallons of oysters.
