    Default Hey Chieffie, Top This!

    Pa. Eatery Offers New 15-Pound Burger
    May 3, 8:05 AM (ET)

    CLEARFIELD, Pa. (AP) - The burger war is growing. Literally. Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, which lost its crown as the home of the world's biggest burger earlier this year, is now offering a new burger that weighs a whopping 15 pounds.

    Dubbed the Beer Barrel Belly Buster, the burger comes with 10.5 pounds of ground beef, 25 slices of cheese, a head of lettuce, three tomatoes, two onions, a cup-and-a-half each of mayonnaise, relish, ketchup, mustard and banana peppers - and a bun.

    It costs $30.

    "It can feed a family of 10," said Denny Liegey Sr., the restaurant's owner.

    Denny's Beer Barrel Pub had offered a 6-pound burger - with 5 pounds of toppings.

    In February, a 100-pound female college student became the first to eat the burger within the three-hour time limit. Kate Stelnick, of Princeton, N.J., was awarded a special certificate, a T-shirt and other prizes and Leigey picked up the $23.95 tab for the burger.

    One month later, the Clinton Station Diner in Clinton, N.J., introduced a 12.5-pound burger dubbed Zeus.

    So Liegey responded, and the Belly Buster was born.

    Over the weekend, four men took the challenge, but couldn't get through the entire burger. They opted for doggie bags, instead.

    "It's a little too much for me to handle," said Steve Hepburn, of Clearfield. "It's like trying to eat half a cow."

    I would top it with about a gallon of Heinz 57.

    I agree with you SC, but someone has to do their best to keep the future neurologists and cardiologists employed.

    a head of lettuce, three tomatoes, two onions
    So this is like a week's worth of vegetable servings. My gosh.

    What do they serve with it? 10lbs of fries, a jar of pickles and a gallon of Coke?

    I guess its better than asking for the OTHER type of bag

    and a pre-printed referral to the cardiologist

    I would just want to see the thing in person. I guess you would want to make sure that one was done sufficiently. You wouldn't want that one being live enough to feel the fork and turn on you!!

    Talking talk about supersizing




    one has to wonder at the thought process that goes into wanting to create something so huge.
