Arby's ain't the only ones to "have the meats." Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill is introducing their new 2-pound smoked ribeye steak dinner, and tonight at 6 p.m. at the Sanford location, Orlando Magic forward-center Jason Smith will attempt to devour the entire thing (plus two side salads and dessert).

If he succeeds, Smokey Bones will donate $4,000 to Smith's charity, the Smith-Mellin scholarship fund, which distributes scholarships to deserving students at Platte Valley High School in Colorado, where Smith attended high school before going on to Colorado State.

Come out and watch one of our B-ball boys stuff himself silly, and order yourself a gigantic plate of those pulled-pork nachos everyone raves about.
