Want A Burger This Morning...?

I know many folks don't think that this would be any good for breakfast, but I think we should join forces to help these people out!

I mean, that's a LOT of burger! Seems like the least we could do is to chip in on the chow line! And speaking of chips, I wonder how many bags of chips it would take to go along with this bad boy!

Well Done: World's Biggest Burger Weighs 777 Pounds

One of the classic contests on any county fair's midway is the old height and weight guessing game. But even the most seasoned barker might have trouble guessing the height and weight of this one.

On Saturday, at California's Alameda County Fair, a record-shattering behemoth burger made its debut. With the Guinness World Records officials there to make the official designation, here are the recorded stats:

Largest Burger

Weight: 777 pounds
Thickness: 3 feet
Diameter: 5 feet
Amount of beef used: 600 lbs
Amount of lettuce used: 30 lbs
Amount of pickles used: 12 lbs
Amount of onions used: 20 lbs
Weight of bun: 110 lbs
Cooking Time: 14 hours

And the caloric breakdown? A mind boggling 1,375,000-calories. Luckily, the mammoth meat creation, was divided among hundreds of fair goers into more manageable 99-cent portions.

The record-winning burger, created by Juicy's LLC and called "Juicy's Outlaw Burger," crushed the previous Canadian record, which was a measly 187 pounds.

I have to thank the Houston Chronicle for this story!

What I want to know is...what on earth did they use to cook this monster with? Must have been one heck of a grill!

How about coffee on the patio this morning? Want some burger to go with it? Seems to be plenty!

I love a good Hamburger , but the first thing I though of was.

"Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame-seed bun"

Followed closely by....

"plop plop fizz fizz, what a relief it is"

I'd like to see the frying pan.

My first thought was: would you like fries with that?

Save room for dessert?

Ddddaaaaannnngggg! I thought that was a cutting board under it until I looked at physical description - thats a pallet!

What was the oven that cooked that thing, it must have been a monster.

Bubba -
Once upon a time Hubby helped with the (at the time) world's largest pecan pie. He operated the forklifts that hefted the cover over the pie to bake it. The city of Okmulgee wanted to lift it with a crane, but power lines and street lights would have to be removed for a big enough crane, so he used 2 forklifts instead.This 40' diameter pie was in Okmulgee, OK sometimes in the 80's. He loves to tell the story -

Big hugs -

OMG! Now thats a burger. Justing seeing all the grease running down the bottom is nasty.But at least it was cut up for people to eat and not waste.
I am ready for your company on the patio.

Hey Ben...
It would probably take a LOT of the "plop and fizz" after eating this!

If this is the main course, I can't wait to see dessert!

Hey, thanks for coming by today, buddy!

Hey Sixbears...
Gonna take a bunch of fries, I'm thinking!

Just imagine all the ketchup that will get used!

I really do appreciate the visit this morning!

Hey Anon 6:02...
Whatever they used to cook it, it must have really smelled good!

I don't want to be the one that has to clean up!

Bring on the Tums!

Thanks for coming by today!

Hey Momlady...
Glad you made it back safely from Tennessee! I was afraid you might decide to stay!

I missed you and your visits! Thanks for dropping in today!

Hey Sis...
That's a big pecan pie! Bet there was enough for just about everyone!

I thought those big ol' 2 pound burgers here in town were big!

You and the hubby come and visit when you can!

Thanks for coming by today!

Hey JoJo...
This monster might not fit on the patio! Guess we'll have to cut it in the yard!

I appreciate the visit this morning, sweetie!

Dang, now I want a burger...

Likely they used a special spring-form pan, cooked it low and slow in an oversized oven, then released it from the pan.

I'm glad I didn't have to slice all the cheese and veggies for that bady boy!

Shade andSweetwater,

Hey K...
How in the world are ya? Haven't seen you in a while!

I have a feeling that no matter what they used, it took a monster size wash job to clean it up!

Have to admit, though, it does make my mouth set for a juicy burger...maybe just a tad smaller!

I hope all is well in your neck of the woods! Thanks for coming by today!

The grill is easy! I'd like to know who fliped it on the grill and what they used?

On a good day, my son could make quick work of that burger. He says he's slowing down so he would eat jusy one of those. Thanks for the neat story and have a great day.
