Eating Out
The Webcke Rump, Royal Hotel, Leyburn, QLD, AU
Shane Webcke, a legend in Australian Rugby League football. Coming from the country, he knows what a good steak should taste like, and how big it should be. So when Shane bought the Royal Hotel in Leyburn, Queensland, he made sure there was a meal big enough to satisfy his appetite. And thus, the Webcke Rump was born. AU$22. With the meal weighing in at around 1.7kg, this would have to be one of the cheapest and biggest meals you'll find!

So last week, on the way back from a wedding in Goondiwindi (congrats Simon and Chon!), I thought I'd stop in there for a bite to eat...

Hey Billy, I've been an avid watcher of this site -- Its awesome! I just have to comment on your latest feat with this Webcke Rump. You've done the big shank and other challenges and you never cease to amaze me. This Webcke Rump looked huge....yet you were able to polish it all off -- Fries and all! Where do you put it all? You are so thin, i'm jealous!!!! Keep up the great work on the site and the challenges.

Hey there! Thanks for the compliments on the site, it's great getting positive feedback!!! (and the occasional "that's disgusting" too hahah)

Yeah, that Webcke Rump was pretty huge, and for $22 you couldn't beat it for value! Where do I put it? Well, I've always been a bit of a big eater, but I don't eat big all the time. I go to gym 3-4 times a week, and I try and eat right every other day. When challenges like these come up though I don't feel as bad doing them, they're kinda like a reward for being good I guess ;) Oh, and loving food helps a bit too, otherwise I wouldn't be doing this site!

I've got a friends pre-wedding dinner this Thursday night at the Brekkie Creek Hotel and they just happen to have a Giant T-Bone challenge, so I might hit that I reckon ;)

Thanks again, great hearing your comments!!!
