THE NEW “WORLD’S LARGEST BURGER!”
THANKS TO THE AP FOR THEIR COVERAGE OF THIS MONUMENTAL EVENT!
CARLTON, Minn. (AP) – A Minnesota casino has cooked up a world-record bacon cheeseburger that’s 10 feet in diameter and weighs more than a ton.
The behemoth burger was served up Sunday at the Black Bear Casino Resort near Carlton. It tipped the scales at 2,014 pounds.
Guinness Records representative Philip Robertson verified the record for biggest burger. He called the feat a result of “remarkable teamwork” and said the burger “actually tastes really good.”
A Duluth News Tribune report says the previous mark was a mere 881 pounds, 13 ounces.
Black Bear’s burger included 60 pounds of bacon, 50 pounds of lettuce, 50 pounds of sliced onions, 40 pounds of pickles and 40 pounds of cheese.
It took about four hours to cook the patty. A crane was used to flip it.
PREVIOUS “SUPER BIG BURGERS!”
Well, another record is broken, but here are some previous “big burger” efforts…
As you can see, history is littered with previous record holders…or in this case, bun holders…
And with every effort, a lot of meat, cheese, and smiles are on display…
Let’s celebrate our friends in Minnesota for their achievement, knowing of course that cooks across America are already working on the next “world’s biggest burger!”
