US restaurant unveils 15lb hamburger

A Pennsylvania restaurant that lost its crown as home of the world’s biggest hamburger earlier this year now offers a new one that weighs a whopping 15lb.
Dubbed the Beer Barrel Belly Buster, the burger comes with 10.5lb pounds of ground beef, 25 slices of cheese, a head of lettuce, three tomatoes, two onions, a cup-and-a-half each of mayonnaise, relish, ketchup, mustard and banana peppers - and a bun. It costs €23.50.
“It can feed a family of 10,” said Denny Liegey Sr, the owner of Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, Pennsylvania.
Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub had previously offered a 6lb burger – with 5lbs of toppings.
In February, a 100lb woman became the first to eat the burger within the three-hour time limit. Kate Stelnick was awarded a certificate, T-shirt and other prizes.
One month later, the Clinton Station Diner in Clinton, New Jersey, introduced a 12.5lb burger dubbed Zeus. So Liegey responded, and the Belly Buster was born.
Over the weekend, four men took the challenge, but couldn’t get through the entire burger. They opted for doggie bags instead.
“It’s a little too much for me to handle,” said Steve Hepburn. “It’s like trying to eat half a cow.”
