World's Heaviest Hamburger

Canadian chef Ted Reader made a big hamburger. Big, meaning it weighed 590 pounds! He put the burger together at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto, in an attempt to get into the Guinness Book of World Records. The previous heaviest burger weighed only 185.8 pounds.
The award-winning chef used a specially designed grill with a built-in forklift mechanism designed to flip the oversized culinary creation.

Reader says it took six hours to cook the behemoth of a burger, starting off with a patty weighing 139 kilos. The grilled patty was then nestled in a 48-kilogram bun, dressed with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, red onions, pickles and barbecue sauce.

The event also raised $8,500 to benefit a camp for burn victims. Link -via J-Walk Blog

I agree, Gauldar. It's for a good cause so who cares about it's nutritional value or whether it's wasteful? I know I don't. It's enough that they did this for charity.
