Eric "Badlands" Booker on G4 TV takes on the 100x100
This came in today from an anonymous reader (I suspect one of the lads from G4 TV! Hi guys!) One of the Kings of competitive eating, Eric "Badlands" Booker racing Brendan Hermies, "The Attack of the Show" Co-ordinator. The Challenge? The famous "100x100" from In-n-out. Well, actually, this is the 100x200! Each beef pattie is separated by 2 slices of cheese! Mmm... sweaty cheese... Anyway, here's what got posted...
World-renowned competitive eater, Eric Badlands Booker stopped by G4 with a demonstration of his eating prowess - taking down as many hamburgers as he can from a 100 X 100 (100 burgers and 100 slices of chees) in 30 seconds.
From: http://www.g4tv.com/videos/index.html?video_key=10588 (Click here for the video)
Eric holds some pretty impressive eating records:
- 15 Burritos in 8 Minutes
- 2 lbs. of Chocolate Candy Bars in 6 Minutes
- 49 Glazed Donuts in 8 Minutes
- 4 lbs. of Corned Beef Hash in 1 Minute 58 Seconds
What these numbers don't show is Badlands's awesome personality. He's genuinely one of the nicest guys in a sport that has some interesting personalities. Badlands is known as The People's Champ and holds records in some of the sport's biggest events.
The Luther Burger, Mulligans Bar, Georgia
It's a case of "you can't have one without the other" (thanks Angelica!), although I don't know about trying these back-to-back! While they're not exactly huge in stature, they certainly make up for it in calories! About 1000 to be exact. Mulligans, the home of the "Ham Dog",
also have this beast called "The Luther Burger". The Texas Burger Guy
did a write up on it a while ago, here's what he said:
For those that don't know - the Luther Burger is a bacon cheeseburger served on a Krispy Kreme bun. This bad boy is offered up by Mulligan's - a suburban bar in Decatur, Georgia. Click on the picture below to see a really big picture of this mega-artery clogger.
There's also some photos of home made efforts from a Japanese blog, and these guys even tell you how to make your own!! I'm gonna have to try that out I think! :D

Don "Moses" Lerman tackles the Paulisaurus Rex
One of our readers pointed me in the direction of Don's site. These guys are hilarious! In this event, Don and Kevin decide to tackle the 10lb (or so they thought!) Paulisaurus Rex from Paulie's Pizza, New Jersey. Here's their story
Hello Folks this is Cousin Chubby there will be one restaurant that I will NOT Recommend and that is Paulies Pizza in New Brunswick NJ. They advertise a 10lb pizza pie called the Pauliesaurus Rex for $58 and it is a challenge, eat it with someone else and the $300 prize money is yours!
The only problem is that the pie apparently weighs closer to 22lbs.
The Hamdog, Mulligans Bar, Georgia
One of our readers "Angelica" sent me info about this monstrosity the other day. It's called, "The Hamdog".
A ham dog is a hotdog that is wrapped in ground beef then deep fried. They then place it on a hoagie roll, top it with chilli, grilled onions, and a fried egg.
*clutches chest* hahaha...
It even got on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Mulligan's Myspace page has a copy of the show here: http://www.myspace.com/mulligansatl
French Fry Encrusted Corn Dogs in Korea
One of our Anonymous readers sent this one in. They're French Fry encrusted corn dogs from Korea, and cost about US$1 each. Definately bigger than your average!
The Godzilla Burger, Pig & Pipes Bar, Germany
Here's a supersized meal from our German friends at the "Pig & Pipes Bar". It's called the "Godzilla Burger", consisting of a somewhat humble 339g pattie (12oz), bacon, cheese, and all the usual toppings. While it's not something you'd necessarily need to train for, it would be good to tackle with a few pints of Germany's finest.
The Colossal Pizza, Brooks Pizza 2-for-1, Alberta, Canada
The Colossal Pizza
Sets Guinness World Record and Creates Massive Marketing Value
By Tom Boyles
One line of media attention can be worth ten times the amount you spend on advertising space. So how can pizza operators get this free and extremely valuable media attention? Simple, break a world record. Jeff Parker, founder and owner of the Original Brooks Pizza 2-for-1 Ltd., had no idea he would receive the media attention and surge in sales that has followed in the wake of Brooks creating The Colossal. What is The Colossal? It's the current Guinness World Record holder for the largest commercially available pizza.
Measuring three feet wide, four feet long and providing 108 pieces, The Colossal supplies 12 square feet of pizza for $134.95.
Massive L.A. Pizza!
Found this pic today... looks legit... I think it's from somewhere in LA, can't really make out where it's from by the box...
The Whopperette's 29 pattie Whopper
Burger King's been pushing the "Have it your way" motto for a while now, but I've only just managed to stumble onto this site. http://www.whopperettes.com
, a BK marketing site where you can design your own whopper, and watch the pretty girls throw themselves onto your fantasy burger. It's a bit disturbing if you ask me, can't say I think a girl wearing a beef skirt does it for me.... (don't go there.. please....)
So anyway, I couldn't resist, here's what BK thinks a 29 pattie Whopper should look like.... (it was that big, it even had the top chopped off it!) Does this mean they're actively encouraging the creation of these massive burgers? w00t!

The Carnegie Deli, 55th Street, New York
Following on from jeffuwo's 3lb sandwich
, and encouraged by our last anonymous post, I ended up googling around and finding the store which sold him this fantastic sandwich. It's called The Carnegie Deli
, 55th Street, New York.
After reading up on their web site, turns out this place has been around for quite a while! Not only do they do massive Pastrami sandwiches, how about Carnegie's "Subsational" 6 foot sandwich, or their Famous 4 layered Sloppy Joes? I haven't got those pictures (yet!) but I plan to! They even have a service where they bring the deli to you! How's this...
We set up two eight foot tables - plug in our commercial meat slicer - STEAM our own world's best Corned Beef - Pastrami and Brisket of Beef in large portable chafing dishes and then cut it to order for your guests in any amount and combination they desire
I've added some more images to the Carnegie Deli photo gallery, so if you have any you'd like to send through, email to and I'll post them up!
