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!
It's nearly Thanksgiving, so why not cook up a storm for your guests? Try a Turducken! It's a chicken insides a duck inside a turkey. Massive!
We saw this recipe mentioned in a newspaper and tried it for the first time in 1990. It is so much better than a regular turkey that we have made many more turduckens for Thanksgiving over the years. The juices from the duck and the sausage stuffing really help to add flavor to the turkey. This is what we do:
The Turducken will need to cook for approximately 9 hours at 225 degrees F so begin preparation well in advance. The fowls can be deboned the day before and kept refrigerated overnight. Save the turkey carcass for making stock and some duck skin to render fat. We sometimes make the sausage stuffing the night before and store it in the refrigerator, but it helps to warm it in the microwave before final assembly.
Event: SSS BBQ Barn - "The Big Shank"

at SSS BBQ Barn, Brisbane, Australia!
Hardee's Thickburger - Awesome!
This has been around for a while now, I was wondering whether it still exists? Sounds like a heartstopper!
NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Fans of Hardee's new "Monster Thickburger" may end up making "Big Mac" lovers look like waif-like supermodels.
Hardee's rolls out its new "Monster Thickburger," which contains two 1/3-pound slabs of Angus beef, four strips of bacon, three slices of cheese and mayonnaise on a buttered sesame seed bun.
The "Taco Town" commercial on SNL. Been around for a while, but an absolute classic. If only there was a crunchy all beef taco, smothered in nacho cheese, lettuce, tomato, smothered in a south western sauce, then wrapped in a soft flour tortilla with a layer of refried beans.....
Denny's Beer Barrel Pub - The Belly Buster!
Denny's Beer Barrel Pub
, the home of the world's largest hamburger!
Now they've held this record for some time now, but that was for their previous 6 pound burger, otherwise known as "The 96er". Not too long ago, it had been outsized by a rival restaurant (to be featured soon!), but Denny quickly regained the crown by releasing "The Belly Buster", which weighs in with 10 pounds of meat molded into a 20-inch patty on a specially baked, 17-inch bun.
A preface. This is the true tale. There is direct quotes and we swear a lot.
I first found your web page about November-October. The first impression was... good god, I need to eat. And so the story trickled down through my filter of friends. Among these friends was Russell.
Chris and Cillian's Manwich's
I talked about it with one of my friends, and we had decided to make it for this weekend, where our residence floor was having a potluck. We decided to skip all of the greens and healthy things, and go right for the meaty goodness.
The 8500 Calorie Manwich
On the 29th May 2004, James decided to build a sandwich. This is his story
I'd been studying at Warwick University in the UK, and I had just finished my Computer Science finals (I'm now doing a PhD in Edinburgh). I went out and got drunk, had a nice lie in and bought a couple of new games in town, but I just didn't feel totally liberated.
So I decided to build an enormous f*****g sandwich. Inside this affront to God would be an enchilada, some garlic mushrooms, burgers, sausages, assloads of cheese and some good old HP sauce. I put in a bit of salad as well to even out the bad stuff.
