Clearfiled Mayor Patty Gilliland poses Saturday, Feb. 24, 2007, with Denny Leigey, owner of Dennys Beer Barrel Pub, and the restaurants record-breaking burger in Clearfield, Pa. The pub's Beer Barrel Main Event Charity Burger weighs in at 123 pounds (55.79 kilos) and is sold for $379 (288 Euro). Its cooks maintain the meaty monstrosity shatters the world record of 105 pounds (47.6 kilos) shared by two restaurants in New Jersey and Thailand and they are filing a claim with the Guinness Book of Records.
The newest addition to the menu at Denny's Beer Barrel Pub is one whopper of a burger. The Beer Barrel Main Event Charity Burger weighs in at 123 pounds, a meaty monstrosity that its cooks maintain shatters the world record of 105 pounds shared by two restaurants in New Jersey and Thailand.
The sizable sandwich features an 80-pound beef patty, along with a pound each of lettuce, ketchup, relish, mustard and mayonnaise, 160 slices of cheese, up to five onions and 12 tomatoes.
It's topped with a couple of pounds of banana peppers, then sandwiched into a 30-pound bun. Don't forget the garnish of 33 pickles.
There's a pretty hefty price tag, too: $379.
The Clearfield pub unveiled the menu item over the weekend. Restaurant owner Denny Leigey said he plans to submit paperwork on his colossal culinary creation to the Guinness Book of World Records.
It's not the first time that Leigey has waded into the competition for the world's biggest burger. He drew headlines a couple years ago when he unveiled the Beer Barrel Belly Buster, which weighed in at a mere 15 pounds.
Leigey said he didn't know how many calories were stuffed into his latest gigantic entree.
''If you were worried about calories you would be at home eating Kellogg's,'' he said.
