The US may be one of the fattest countries in the world but it’s not the only place that loves to super-size their food. Take, for instance, the United Kingdom where a chef made a cheeseburger that weighs a whopping (no pun intended) 67 pounds.
Chef Graham Hacker of The George, a pub located in the town of Stockton, woke up one day and decided it was time to do something big at work. So he gathered up a ton (also not a pun because the world doesn’t need a burger that weighs the same as a baby elephant) of ground beef and started making three extra-extra-extra-extra-extra-extra larger beef patties. By the time he finished broiled them to a perfect medium rare, all three patties weighed a total of 48 pounds. Then he slapped on four pounds of shredded cheese and two pounds of red onions, tomatoes, lettuce and mayonnaise. He couldn’t make the buns big enough to carry such a massive meal so he had a nearby bakery bake two 20-inch wide buns to house his massive collection of food.
We don’t what’s scarier: the fact that someone made a 67-pound burger or the person who could actually finish such a thing.
So why make a cheeseburger that can feed 40 people? Hacker said he just wanted to make it. Those Brits sure have a way with words. His original goal was to make a 60-pound burger but he noted that he got “carried away.” Now all he needs to do a make a 60-pound serving of Pepto Bismol that can cure the indigestion that such a massive burger is bound to create.
