Burger war grows with new 15 pounder

Pa. eatery introduces the 'Beer Barrel Belly Buster'


The Associated Press

Updated: 10:06 a.m. ET May 3, 2005CLEARFIELD, Pa. - 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.

Is this sort of thing happening outside of the USA?



Didn't think so.

No one is supposed to eat it alone. One of the bars in Bloomington has a signature drink that no-one was ever supposed to drink. Unfortuntately people are stupid and have bad taste.

This was more detailed on peta-sucks. Some person in their article said it could feed a family of ten. Although I think that was a little bit over-exaggerated.

I like to look on the bright side of life, and think of it taking the lives of omnivores.

Is there some huge, worldwide stupidity contest going on right now? And, why didn't anyone tell me?

We can take some comfort in the fact that those two guys in the photo will be dead from heart attacks soon.



Or should we?

I ate raw meat before. It's not bad at all, so long as it's not cold.

Doesn't sound too far off to me - 15 pounds divided by 10 is 1.5 pounds per person. And with 10.5 pounds of meat that's 1 pound of meat per person. Seeing as how most larger burgers range from 1/4-3/4 pounds I'd say that's about right.

Yeah, because America's cornered the market on disgusting foods (except for haggis, menudo, sheep's heads, fish eyes, gellied blood.....)

This is amazing and yet disgusting, all at the same time...

I am really tired of hearing references to meat eaters dying, by the way. I certainly don't take any happiness/solace/comfort in thinking about my Mom, Dad, sister, boyfriend or entire extended family/circle of friends dying. I don't think its funny or cute, either.

Oh . . . I guess that's why burgers were only snacks to me.
