Nathan's 15lb burger
Nathan sent this in the other day... a 15lb home made burger, cooked on the good ol' Aussie BBQ. Check out his site, he's video blogged his experience!
Inspired by these guys, and in keeping with a family tradition of "Christmas surprises", I invited my family over on Christmas Eve and attempted to make a 7kg (15lb) burger.

"The Quadruple C", Dan's Diner, Toronto
"longdongwong" sent this one in, it's called "The Quadruple C", purchased at Dan's Diner in Toronto. Here's what longdongwong had to say about it!
From the menu, it's a 24oz burger served with a quarter pound of cheese, a quarter pound of bacon, and 2 fried eggs - yikes. For those that want to be a hero, you can order the "Collossal Colon Clogger Combo" which, along with the Quadruple C burger, comes with a "small" poutine and a large shake.
Pastrami Burger at Crown Burger in SLC
This is from my report on Salt Lake City
a while back:
Crown Burgers was my reward after driving for 12 hours on the eve of Thanksgiving. In college, there was a burger and sandwich shop run by a Pakistani family called Royal Burger. Their fries were perfect. Their grilled cheese was perfect. Their club sandwich was perfect. Their reuben was perfect. Great stuff. Living a quarter of a mile away for a year helped me top 300 lbs in college. The jewel of their sandwich crown was the Royal Burger Special, a quarter-pound flame broiled burger with cheese and a pile of pastrami.
The Millet Monster
One of our readers sent this in today, 4.5 pounds of ground Alberta Beef, and a $500 prize if you can finish it in an hour! But if you don't finish it in time, you pay $200, with the proceeds going to local charities, a great idea!
Owner of the restless Wheels Restaurant, Abe Ame'r has issued a challenge to any one who thinks they have a huge appetite.
He has created the burger to end all burgers. The Millet Monster, as he has dubbed it, is equivalent to 32 normal quarter pounders.
The meat patty consists of 4.5 pounds of ground Alberta Beef, a loaf of bread, four large tomatoes, 12 slices of process cheese and almost a full head of lettuce plus assorted condiments.
Abe challenges anyone who thinks they are able to eat this monster to come on down and take the challenge.
Here’s the deal to date. If you are able to eat the whole thing, including the bun, and all the condiments within one hour, you get $500 in Canadian funds. If you fail, you pay $200. Of the $200, the restaurant gets $35 to cover the cost of the burger and the balance goes to the charity of your choice.
As it now stands 4 Millet businesses have jumped on the bandwagon, but as this goes to press, others will be approached to help sponsor the event. The hope is that at least $1000 will be raised as a prize.
Further developments will be posted on the Pipestone Web-site at:
The Ultimate Bacon Sandwich
This guy had a craving for bacon... a REAL
craving for bacon, 22 slices to be exact. I can feel my arteries hardening just looking at the pictures!!!
The Party Sub Challenge
Top form, these two champs decide one day that they're going to each consume a 4.5 foot party sub. No time limits, no pressure from spectators, just the challenge itself. They've each blogged their experience, so click on their respective pics to read their story
One year ago Jason and I took part in a landmark food experiment called Mystery Can. To celebrate our willingness to be gluttons for punishment, Jason came up with an anniversary challenge. The premise is pretty simple. We each get identical party subs (the four and a half foot monster seen above), and we eat it until it's gone. It's not so much a race as it is a life lesson to never listen to Jason again. Now without further ado, Party Sub Challenge...

In 'n' Out 100x100 Burger
This next burger makes the 20 Pattie In 'n' Out Burger
look like a happy meal. Yep, some crazy mofo decided to get an In 'n' Out burger worth close to USD$100!!! 100 beef patties, 100 slices of cheese... Andy, the man responsible for all of this, I tip my hat to your fine achievement of mega-fatness!
It started innocently enough with a Halloween weekend in Vegas (2004). What started as a drunken, silly weekend..became quite legendary.
Throughout the weekend, Andy kept on saying: "We should go get a 100x100 at In-N-Out". Over..and over...and over again. Until we finally broke. So on Halloween night, we went to go chowdown.
The Subway Party Sub
Firstly, Happy New Year everyone! And what better way to kick off the new year with a massive subway sandwich? Not your 6" or 12", but 6 foot!
Apparently, most Subway restaurants make these to order... ask for one today, and send me pics :D (more pics in the photo gallery!)
Mega Bacon Sandwich
This one was sent in from one of the lads at Virgin Blue
, a worthy entry for what could be one of the biggest Bacon Sandwiches I've ever seen from a Cafe. The cafe who created this monster? The "Way to Go Cafe" in Fortitude Valley, QLD Australia.
It's getting to that time of the year, where everyone eats way too much food... so we thought we'd hit up our local "Torts" shop for a Mega sized tort. $10.45, 2 serves bacon, 2 serves steak, 3 eggs, tomato, cheese, pineapple, onion, sauce.
For those that don't know, "Torts" make tortilla's filled with whatever... breakfast goodies, lunch goodies. Kind of like a kebab shop with nicer fillings...
