Burger Battle: the 123 pound hamburger!

The Burger Wars are sizzling again, as Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield in central Pennsylvania (site) recently shocked the world with the introduction of quite possibly the world's largest hamburger, weighing in at 123 pounds! Called the "Beer Barrel Main Event Charity Burger", it's a "whopper"!

The ingredients: "an 80-pound beef patty, along with a pound each of lettuce, ketchup, relish, mustard and mayonnaise, 160 slices of cheese, up to five onions and 12 tomatoes. It's topped with a couple of pounds of banana peppers and 33 pickles, then sandwiched into a 30-pound bun. There's a pretty hefty price tag, too: $379."

Of course, epicurians (as well as Michael Moore) will recall that Denny's is the home of a previous megaburger, weighing in at a relatively puny 15 pounds, which was followed by the "Beer Barrel Belly Bruiser", at 50+ pounds. However, the new contestant is so weighty, that Jimmy Carter might have to be called in to create an Burger Limitation Treaty or something!
