The World's Largest Burger Weighs a Whopping 2,014 Pounds
Black Bear Casino Resort
We've featured the world's most expensive burger before, but what's in the world's largest?
A Minnesota casino cooked up a 2,014-pound, 10-foot-diameter bacon cheeseburger that contained 60 pounds of bacon, 50 pounds of lettuce, 50 pounds of sliced onions, 40 pounds of pickles, and 40 pounds of cheese.
Naturally, it cinched the Guinness World Record for biggest burger.
According to the Duluth News Tribune, the burger was cooked using an outdoor oven powered by propane torches and 15-foot steel skillets. It took about four hours at 350 degrees to cook the burger, and more than seven hours to bake the bun.
How did they flip the massive cheeseburger? With a crane provided by a construction company.
