How about a 300 lbs cheeseburger? Mallie’s Sports Bar & Grill in Michigan is all set to break their previous record of 185.6 lbs. They’ll be featured on The History Channel’s “Modern Marvels” as they give it a go.
The burger took about 15 hours to cook, four hours to cool to a serving temperature and two football teams to eat it, the squads from local Southgate Anderson and Plymouth high schools. Roughly 60 people dined on the burger and finished about half of it. The 300-pound burger will be on the menu shortly, and will set cost ya $999.
“This is the third time we’ve broken our own record. Someone can try to break our record, but if that ever happens, we’re going to break it again. This winter we will be designing a system to cook a burger that breaks 1,000 pounds. We try to sell these for cost, or below cost, not for profit. It cost about $1,000 to make. We use 250 pounds of raw hamburger at $2 a pound. People like them for birthday parties, and they stick the candles in the top of the bun,” – owner Steve Mallie
