It takes three hands to handle
A fifteen-pound hamburger? In Clearfield, Pennsylvania, you betcha:
Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, which lost its crown as the home of the world's biggest burger earlier this year, is now offering a new burger that weighs a whopping 15 pounds.
Dubbed the Beer Barrel Belly Buster, the burger comes with 10.5 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 $30.
Um, hold the mayo.
There may have been a time when I might have tried to polish off one of those. But there's never been a time when I would have succeeded; I might go through 10½ pounds of ground beef in a month, maybe.

I'm getting heartburn just thinking about it. Pass the Pepto.
It's big enough to feed a small third world country. That is, if it doesn't kill off all the inhabitants with high cholesterol first.
At least it's not a giant burrito.
Not that I'm proud of gluttony or youthful indiscretions, but at the tender age of 18 [october 1976] I polished off 13 big macs at one setting @ a southside okc mickey-Ds...od course this constituted perhaps, a couple of pounds actual beef.
The Mac patty is somewhere around 2.4 ounces, so twenty-six of them would be about 62 ounces, a tad shy of four pounds.
Assuming my numbers are closer than Johnny Carson's: "McDonald's has now served their 100 millionth burger. Can you imagine that? That's over a hundred pounds of beef."
There are two of those patties in a Big Mac, are there not?
Two all-beef patties
Special sauce, lettuce, cheese
Pickles, onion, on a
Yup. Two of 'em.
Hence twenty-six patties from thirteen Big Macs.
