Pa. Eatery Offers New 15-Pound Burger May 3, 8:05 AM (ET)

CLEARFIELD, Pa. (AP) - The burger war is growing. Literally. Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, which lost its crown as the home of the world's biggest burger earlier this year, is now offering a new burger that weighs a whopping 15 pounds.

Dubbed the Beer Barrel Belly Buster, the burger comes with 10.5 pounds of ground beef, 25 slices of cheese, a head of lettuce, three tomatoes, two onions, a cup-and-a-half each of mayonnaise, relish, ketchup, mustard and banana peppers - and a bun.


It costs $30.

"It can feed a family of 10," said Denny Liegey Sr., the restaurant's owner.

Denny's Beer Barrel Pub had offered a 6-pound burger - with 5 pounds of toppings.

In February, a 100-pound female college student became the first to eat the burger within the three-hour time limit. Kate Stelnick, of Princeton, N.J., was awarded a special certificate, a T-shirt and other prizes and Leigey picked up the $23.95 tab for the burger.
One month later, the Clinton Station Diner in Clinton, N.J., introduced a 12.5-pound burger dubbed Zeus.


So Liegey responded, and the Belly Buster was born.


Over the weekend, four men took the challenge, but couldn't get through the entire burger. They opted for doggie bags, instead. "It's a little too much for me to handle," said Steve Hepburn, of Clearfield. "It's like trying to eat half a cow."

Even as a young man with the worst case of munchies I'd ever had there'd be no way I'm getting thru that.

The french fries must be the size of a baseball bat.

In a weird twist, Hardees is using the Denny's burger to hawk it's own ThickBurger. Saw the commercial last night.
Guess they're message is "if this gets you wet, but you can't get to PA, our big burger is a decent proxy."

I hope you have about 4 hours to kill and a good long book when that thing finally works it's way through the system. Better chase it with a prune juice smoothie.

That's actually not that bad. $2 per pound is probably cheaper than any other burger you'll find.

No way anyone's going to choke down that whole thing in one setting. Only in America. We waste food like nobodys business. No wonder the rest of the world hates us.

By the way, can I get a Diet Coke with that?

If I ate that thing I imagine my life would closely resemble that of the alpha Lion on the African savannah for the next few weeks or so.
