Minnesota Casino Cooks Up World Record Bacon Cheeseburger
Would you like pickles and mayo with your 1 ton bacon cheeseburger? The Black Bear Casino Resort cooked up brilliant public relations with a record smashing burger on Labor Day weekend.
The bacon cheeseburger weighed in at 2,014 pounds (913 kilograms). The folks at Guiness Records verified the achievement. Philip Robertson, a Guiness representative said the burger “actually tastes really good”.
The record breaking burger is made of 60 pounds of bacon (that’s a lot of pig!), 50 pounds of lettuce, 50 pounds of sliced onions (imagine the tears), 40 pounds of pickles and 40 pounds of cheese. It took 4 hours to cook.
Even more remarkably, a crane was used to flip the burger! An outdoor oven powered by propane torches and 15 foot skillets. The food and crane were donated by local businesses.
Customers were welcomed with free portions of the burger. No one has been reported sick, though we wonder if toilet paper sales are up Minnesota.
