Mmmm...15-pound hamburger

Who's up for a road trip to this fine establishment about 4 hours away? Many people make pilgrimages to sacred places...whether it's Israel, Mecca, or the first Starbucks, so why not make a plan to visit Denny's Beer Barrel Pub for a gigantic hamburger?



It's where you can find the current record holder for largest hamburger, weighing in at a mere 15 pounds for just $30...what a bargain! And if you finish the burger within a 3-hour time limit, not only is the meal on the house, but you get days of stomach pains and indigestion!



To make this at home, all you need is 15 pounds of meat that take 2.5 hours to cook, grill it for some aesthetic grill lines, add 25 slices of cheese, 3 tomatoes, an entire head of lettuce, a cup and a half each of mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup, and of course a sesame seed bun large enough to handle it all.

So who's making the pilgrimage with me?

Ah, but does it come with chips?

I will, as long as I spend most of the time watching [you get sick]...and that your ride home is in the trunk of my car.
