Can You Eat a 20 Lb Hamburger?

The Associated Press Reports:

CLEARFIELD, Pa. – It took Brad Sciullo 4 hours and 39 minutes to finish a marathon. A meat marathon, that is.

The 5-foot-11, 180-pound western Pennsylvania chef is the first person to eat a monstrosity called the Beer Barrel Belly Bruiser: a 15-pound burger with toppings and a bun that brought the total weight to 20.2 pounds. The mountain of beef is the product of Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub, about 100 miles northeast of Pittsburgh in Clearfield.

Sciullo, 21, of Uniontown, said he was surprised he finished the sandwich Monday. “About three hours into it, things got tough,” he said.

When asked what possessed him to eat a burger that big, Sciullo said: “I wanted to see if I could.”

The burger included a bun, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, onions, mild banana peppers and a cup each of mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and relish, pub owner Dennis Liegey said.

For completing the challenge in the under-five-hour time limit, Sciullo won $400, three T-shirts, a certificate “and a burger hangover, as I call it,” Liegey said.

Dear God, he is going to be pooping for weeks!  He’s so thin… how did he get it all in?  It would take WAY MORE than $400 and some t-shirts to get me to eat that!  Holy COW!

    Seriously cannot believe he ate that. Just can’t. Even though I know it’s true. 🙂

    I’m not much of a carnivore, so it’s all I can do to eat a small hamburger – I’d gag on that thing.

  3. I think I am going to be sick!

    Ugghhh. Kathy, I’m with you. Beef is my least favorite meat. Anytime we grill burgers, it’s turkey or a veggie burger for me and beef for my husband. Thinking of him eating that ginormous thing is just gross 🙂
