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 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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
