New burger sets world record
It takes nearly an hour of intense exercise to work off the 520 calories contained in a Big Mac. Think that’s tough? Think how much exercise would be needed to work off the 4.1 million calories contained in the world’s largest cheeseburger, cooked on Sunday at Black Bear Casino Resort, near Carlton Minnesota.
According to a story published yesterday in the UK’s Daily Mail, the 2,014 lb record-setting hamburger spanned nearly 10 feet and required 60lb of bacon, 50lb of lettuce, 50lb of sliced onions, 40lb of pickles and 40lb of cheese.
Describing the burger as the product of “remarkable teamwork,” Guinness Records representative Philip Robertson also noted that the burger ‘actually tastes really good,’ but what else could he say. Cooked for nearly four hours under an oven heated by propane torches, the burger was flipped by what else? A crane.
“What I saw today was a feat of remarkable teamwork that resulted in a world record burger that actually tastes really good,” Mr Robertson said.
It took about four hours to cook the patty. A crane was used to flip colossal burger.
The burger was carved up and eaten casino patrons.
