Fuddruckers takes world's largest burger title (for now)
Another record broken! Looks like Fuddruckers has managed to take the title from Denny's Beer Barrel Pub for the worlds largest commercially available burger. Dave from Megamuch did a great write up about it here. I pretty much agree with everything he said, the cost, the size, the appeal. I'm looking forward to seeing someone try and eat it though! Have to laugh at those Guinness World Record people. After the "Worlds Largest Buffet" last month, looks like they're liking Supersized Meals! (Side note: There is a larger burger available, the Mt. Olympus Burger at the Clinton Station Diner, but until I see a picture of a customer in their restaurant eating it, I'm still rating Denny's as the real winner)

On Thursday, the Fuddruckers in the Foxwoods casino in Connecticut unveiled a 29.6 pound burger (What, they couldn't add a few pickles and onions to push it over the 30 mark?). Guinness was on hand to verify the beast, which goes for $250 and has to be ordered 48 hours in advance. That's it above in all of its rather colorless, unappetizing glory.

    Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, "The 96'er"
    Big thanks to Juddy for sending in this one! We've all heard about Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, and I've talked about the "Beer Barrel Belly Buster" before as well (the 15lb burger creation from Denny's). But if you're not quite up to the task of tackling 15lb's of burgery goodness, why not try something a little smaller like "The 96'er"? It's only 6 pounds, but looks like just as much fun!

    Eric "Badlands" Booker eating some big burgers

    We've all seen the pic of Eric "Badlands" Booker with the Mutley helmet, but here's the "real" version, un 'shopped. Also found another one that I hadn't seen before
    UPDATE 10 May 2012: Badlands has confirmed this was a REAL helmet! More pics to come!

    Ian Sarfin's 35lb Burger

    Adam K from A Hamburger Today told me about this one some time ago, but I wasn't able to find any pictures. Well, I finally managed to track down Ian Sarfin, and he was kind enough to scan in and send me the photos of this massive burger! Even though Ian's Kitchen and Soda Shoppe is no longer open, Ian still continues to cater from home and make these huge burgers. Thanks to Kingston Links for helping me get in touch with Ian, and thanks Ian for the photos! Here's an excerpt from the original article about Ian Sarfin's 35lb burger

    [Restaurant owner Ian] Sarfin's creation — which took more than three hours to cook Thursday morning — weighs almost 21 pounds.

    "You're looking at an 18-inch diameter bun (and) there's a pound of cheese, there's a pound of onion, there's a pound of pickels, there's two pounds of tomatoes and five cups of sauce," said Sarfin. "Once you add it all together, you're looking at about 30-35 pounds total weight." ...

    Sarfin said his hamburger — the equivalent of just over 100 quarter-pounders — is designed to feed 20 or 25 people.

    Look at the beer cup snake go!
    Nothing says "Aussie" like beer and cricket. And when it comes to a meal in a cup, a nice cold frostie is definately the best way to cool down during a hot day in the sun. For those that don't know, a beer cup snake is when you take all your empty beer cups, stack them, then join them all together. This is the longest beer cup snake I've ever seen, compliments of The Fanatics and their day at the WACA (Perth cricket ground)

    30" Hog Dog, Schnack, Brooklyn
    While we're on the topic of Hot Dogs, how's this place. "Schnack" in Brooklyn has a 30" Hot Dog Eating Competition, and Gustad "IronCheff" Mody thought he'd cut his competitive eating teeth on it. 10 entered, only 4 completed, and he finished 4th. A great effort for his first event, and looks like he had a heap of fun doing it!

    From: http://ironcheff.blogspot.com/2006/05/my-first-competitive-eating.html

    The food: 30 inch hot dog
    The goal: Eat it as fast s possible

    I came in 4th place of 10 people. Only the top 4 of us finished the whole hot dog. The rest couldn’t finish theirs. Being that this was my first contest, I am pretty content with amount and speed I did. The hot dog had a lot of girth to it, and the custom bun was pretty thick. It took me about 12 minutes to down the hotdog, followed by a tall pint of cold beer. See all pics from the competition here.

    One of our anonymous readers sent in this one. It's from Andrew "Skinnyboy" Lane's birthday party. You might know "Skinnyboy" from such articles as "Andrew "Skinnyboy" Lane attempts 14 pound pizza". Well instead of huge pizzas, this time he's got a huge Hot Dog birthday cake!

    Richard LeFevre and the Big Texan(s)
    "The Big Texan". To some, it means an overly huge cowboy, to others, it's one of the largest steaks you'll ever get a chance to eat. We've featured this fine cut of meat before, and now the guys on Ripley's Believe It or Not have done a story on Richard and Carlene LeFevre completing this mammoth mound of meat. Richard ate nearly two of the 72 oz steaks within the 60 minute timeframe! Carlene also ate hers in record time.
