Casino Makes Record Burger 04 Sep 12

A Minnesota casino has cooked up a world-record bacon cheeseburger that’s 10 feet in diameter and weighs more than a ton. The monster of a burger was served up Sunday at the Black Bear Casino Resort near Carlton. It tipped the scales at 2,014 pounds. A Guinness World Records representative verified the record for biggest burger. The previous mark was a mere 881 pounds. Black Bear’s burger included 60 pounds of bacon, 50 pounds of lettuce, 50 pounds of sliced onions, 40 pounds of pickles and 40 pounds of cheese. It took about four hours to cook the patty, and a crane was used to flip it.
