SSS BBQ "The Big Shank"
The time had come. Time to try and tackle “The Big Shank”, it was a lot harder than I thought it would be….
We arrived at about 6pm Friday night. I was surprised at how few people were there for a Friday though, but we were led to our table and took our seats.
The "Big Shank Challenge" is (from the SSS web site):
If you can personally eat and finish a meal consisting of an entree and our monster Beef Shank (including potato and salad) and dessert, we will give you your dessert absolutely free and recognise your achievement on the Big Shank honour roll in store and online!
There were 4 contestants, myself, Wayne, Ken, and Sean.
Blue Grill's 4 pound Steakburger!
Everyone loves a good steakburger. Nice and thin, tender steak, grilled onions, tomato, lettuce.... mmm... but when I heard about the 4 pound Steakburger at Blue Grill, I was impressed! With a steak pattie 10" across and 2" thick, this is something else!
The challenge of eating a 4-pound steakburger in an hour awaits those willing to make the journey to McDonough. So, I figured, why the hell not? I have been training my whole life for this sort of thing.
“What does a 64 oz burger look like?” Asked Melanie. As images of John Candy eating a prime rib bigger than a truck (movie: The Great Outdoors) kept flashing through my head.
“I don’t know.” I replied. “But that’s a shitload of red meat!”
Clinton Station Diner - Home of Zeus: The 7 lb Burger!!!!
This was the burger that toppled Denny's "96er", and encouraged Denny to come up with an even bigger burger, "The Belly Buster". Sometimes competition is good :)
From: Courier News
By CHAD WEIHRAUCH
UNION (Hunterdon) -- Anyone who thinks competitive eating is not a sport has never watched several groups of large men each try to power down a 12.5-pound cheeseburger.
The sweating, the strain on the flushed faces, the groans of defeat from oversized contestants: Whatever it is, it ain't exactly an evening at the opera.
But it was the scene Monday at the Clinton Station Diner, where six three-man teams sat down to assail "Zeus," the diner's massive slab of beef once billed as the nation's largest burger.
The "Big Daddy Barrick Burger"
Think the measley 6lb "96er" from Denny's is just a little too small? Then have a crack at this one next time you pop into Sin City. The Plaza Hotel Casino in Las Vegas have created a burger 12" in diameter, weighing a total of 9lb's! $49.95, but eat it within 24hrs, and it's yours free!
For those non-diet conscious carnivores who consider a half-pound hamburger a mere appetizer, the Upper Deck Restaurant at the Vegas Club Hotel and Casino in Downtown Las Vegas has just the hamburger: the 9 pound "Big Daddy Barrick Burger." Served with a bun 12" in diameter, a half head of lettuce, two tomatoes, two onions, four pickles, mayo, mustard and 12 slices of American cheese, the burger big enough to feed a softball team is available for $49.99. If one person finishes the burger within 24 hours, it is free!
Schiappa's 29" pizza challenge
Now this is one challenge I wouldn't mind trying, although rushing a good pizza is a little bit of a shame, I'm sure it'd be fun! Oh, and at the time of writing, only 2 groups of people have been able to complete the challenge!
1 29" Pizza
Eat it All and it is FREE
El Bocadillo Del Diablo
"Dan on the Run" made a wonderful discovery. After purchasing a loaf of bread from the local shop, he discovered they'd sliced the bread lengthways instead of across the loaf! that's 9 mammoth slices of wonderful, fresh white bread! Here's what he made:
One day, I visited the corner shop local to me, and purchased a loaf of Kingsmill 'Thick Square White' bread. It soon became apparent on opening the packet, that this was no ordinary loaf...
It had been sliced lengthways, instead of down. Leaving me with 9, foot long slices of bread.
A place in Germany called "Waldgeist" serves some of the biggest schnitzels and german sausages I've ever seen. Not bad for around 10 Euro's! This series of pics was mailed to me a while ago.
Apparently on each table there's aluminium foil, to make it easier for people to wrap up their leftovers. As if!
20 Pattie In 'n' Out Burger
This champion decided buying a 20 pattie burger would be the best way to get known on the net. He was right. And he actually finished it! Bahahah!!!
Derian's 30,000 Calorie Sandwich
So I'm sure you all have seen the Giant Sandwich. If you haven't, go there now. When I first read that, I realized he is a god among men.
So I got an idea in my head. A particularly stupid idea. This makes it even harder to simply pass up.
I think to myself: "I can top this guy - he didn't fry anything!"
And it begins.
Deep in the heart of Texas
Yee haw. Texas is where you'll find our next eating challenge! And the name of this fine establishment? "The Big Texan"
, home to the "The 72oz Steak"
Now for those of us who aren't too familiar with ounces, that's equivalent to around about 2kg. Puts the 'Park Road Challenge" into perspective, but of course they always do everything bigger in Texas! That said, it sure ain't cheap. US$72. Ouch. But, as most of these challenges, money is no object. When faced with a challenge, one must savour the experience!
This place has some great history. Here's some facts
- Nearly 6,200 people have succeeded in eating the 72oz. steak (since 1960).
- Almost 37,000 people have attempted to consume the free 72oz. steak (since 1960).
- Frank Pastore, a professional pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds, ate the complete steak dinner in a record that still stands today of just 9½ minutes back in May of 1987. This was Frank's 7th and fastest time to complete the steak contest in 11 years of running to spring training in Florida.
- The oldest person to eat the steak was a 69-year-old grandmother; the youngest, an 11-year old boy.
- Klondike Bill, a professional wrestler, consumed two complete dinners in the one hour time limit back in the 1960s
"The Big Texan", I tip my hat to your historical challenge, and will endeavour to see you soon!
