I had a group of friends that went on a road trip to a college. They did one of these challenges along the way. The pictures were hilarious because they weren't even remotely close. It was basically just that burger with a couple of chunks taken out of it.

There is (was?) a place in San Diego my buddies and I went to in high school called Off The Wall Dog, a hotdog joint. They had I think a 6.5 pound hotdog that if you could eat it in <1 hour the meal was free and you got your picture on the wall, which was more than enough reward for stoned teenagers.

We all tried at the same time with our own hotdogs. I got about 2 minutes in and realized there's no fucking way I can do this since they add like an additional 2 pounds of non-optional toppings on top of the 6.5 pound hotdog, so I resigned myself to paying for my meal and enjoyed it slowly.

My buddy however managed to eat the entire hotdog, bun, and most of the toppings and still had 15 minutes to spare. The lone employee working was like "No you need to eat all of that relish you scooped off the top", which honestly was like half a pound of relish. My friend was like, "If I eat all this relish I'm gonna be sick", employee said, "Sorry then you don't pass the challenge."

So, my friend ate all the relish. Then he immediately turned around in his chair, stuck his head sideways in the little THANK YOU flap of the restaurant trash can and vomited the entire hotdog out. The employee was pissed he'd have to empty the trash later.

I think everyone learned a different individual lesson that day.

Fuddruckers had something similar when I was younger. 1lb challenge (1lb burger, large chilli fries, large soda, large sundae). If you could finish it all in an hour without throwing up, you got a free t-shirt. I was the only one who didn't throw up of my group.

I did the gallon challenge too, with chocolate milk, but I tried to forfeit, because it was just before dinner and I didn't want to fill up on milk. I couldn't induce enough to evacuate all the milk I drank, but my efforts were enough to make fellow contestants and some onlookers lose their lunch.

She used a knife a bit, but the bigger issue is you're forgetting the sides. Three baked potatoes, three side salads, three rolls and three shrimp cocktails (nine jumbo shrimp). I watch her stuff on Youtube, and I'm convinced she is the top eater on the planet. It's completely lame that Nathan's requires a contract with an exclusivity clause, since they are the only contest that gets real press.

"One 72-oz. steak, a baked potato, a shrimp cocktail, a salad and a roll [...] in just 4 minutes and 18 seconds [...] and then went on to devour two more of the same meals."

Past employees of my company got the entire company banned from a buffet. It used to be if they saw our shirts they’d refuse service. 5-6 guys were into body building and juicing up. They’d go to the buffet and basically grab the tray of baked chicken and eat all of it and then grab the next tray and do the same.

My friend's restaurant used to hold the Guiness Record for "World's Largest Commercially Available Hamburger" at 80 pounds back in 2006. He didn't need 2 weeks advance notice; but did need 2 days. The tricky part was baking the bottom half of the hamburger bun: Obviously, no regular bread is going to stay bread-like with 80 pounds of ground beef sitting on top of it. He would make these rock-solid dough "pillars" and then would bake the bottom bun around those, and then set the meat (about 10 inches thick, 30 inches diameter) on top of that. The burger itself only took like 8 hours to put cook and assemble, but the bottom bun took a day or two to make. Two weeks though? That's just lollygagging.

I just watched a video of a group of people eating one. To answer your question about how they cook it so it's not raw in the middle, they don't, it looked pretty dang raw in the middle.

As to how they cook it, I'm a chef so I'll take a guess. I'd use a two-person, four-handled paella pan on a 300k btu standalone burner. Grill one side, put another paella pan on top and flip it. Grill that side and then throw it into a double-door convection oven, with the racks pulled out, to finish it to temp. It'd be a pain in the ass though, lol.

Depends if they’re local or going out afterwards.

That’s probably a small percentage of those not taking leftovers but those are my reasonings for not taking them when I decline.

Funny thing about America, we actually produce more food than we can healthily eat (ignoring nutritional balance, just in terms of raw calories).

Waste and over production is horrible, do not get me wrong, we need to produce less is more the issue. If all the food America produces for domestic consumption was actually eaten evenly by all Americans, every American would vastly obese. Americans weirdly need to throw away food with how much we produce.

America simultaneously has people starving while also making more food than it can eat,

I work in a casino right now. We have 8500 employees and a huge trash dock. The stats they say are 50 tons of trash a day. We are just one of 15-20ish casinos on the strip

There’s a really interesting documentary, Bug, about a project to determine if expanding available food products made from insects and other bugs could help address starvation in context of the expanding global population. Basically they determine that it’s unnecessary because we already produce wayyyy more food than is needed to feed the projected population but we waste so much of it, and capitalistically exploiting another protein source in a race to the bottom serves nothing but to line the pockets of a few large corporations.

The difficult part of feeding everyone isn't growing the food, it's transporting it where it's needed. I have absolutely no idea how bug protein farming would work, but if it could be more easily set up in difficult-to-reach places, then it could still be beneficial.

how would bugs be easier to farm and turn into food than lentils or soybeans? how would they be more appetizing or cheaper?

i honestly don't understand the bug thing.

If I ate that I would be over 33% burger. I don’t think that’s a good idea.

It would almost double my weight if I ate that by myself. 😳 50/50

u/According-Reveal6367 3d ago

Slightly over 40% over here. I don't need much food so I guess that a burger like that would feed me for the better part of a month. There is no freaking way I would be able to fit 4,8 kilos of food into my belly within a hour. Even if you would feed me Homer Simson style.

Ah, thanks for pointing that out. It has been a long day. I was left with a very funny/sad mental picture of a huge plate and a single tiny burger the size of a quarter of something.

Is it just me or does $621.49 seem like a pretty decent price for a 105lb burger?

That just sounds like a total shitshow and massive waste of money, why the fuck would you ever want that lol

u/Le-Bean 3d ago

Apparently you’re supposed to come as a group with friends (10 people in total I think someone said) and if you finish it within an allotted time, you win $2000.

u/ScarletDarkstar 3d ago

It doesn't to me. A burger that size has lost all integrity, and you cant get a "good" bite because you will have to eat huge portions of each ingredient. $621.49 sounds like a lot to pay someone to ruin what could have been 100 - 200 well made and tasty burgers for the sake of showing off.

Where I am I can get the ground beef for this fiasco for $150 retail, and I doubt restaurants pay grocery store prices. I realize a lot more goes into it, but it still doesn't seem like a very decent price given the quality cannot be very good.

u/SweetNeo85 3d ago

I wanna see how they try to cook it. How do they flip this monstrosity? Also do they have buns that are like 3 feet across? Must be absolutely soaked in grease. Which is fine, but there must be a picture somewhere.

19

u/Put_It_All_On_Blck 3d ago

Easiest solution is to just bake it. You get even heat, bottom is unlikely to burn, you don't have to flip it (which would absolutely break it), and you can cook it for hours.

u/ScarletDarkstar 3d ago

It's the Clinton Station Diner in New Jersey, they have a website, and I think there is a picture on a food challenge website, too.

I didn't see anything about cooking it, but I got distracted by their 14 page long menu.

It's about 6 bucks a lb of prepared food, which is a very good price.

However, burgers notoriously don't scale well due to messing up the bun burger ratio. At this rate you'd have what effectively is a 50LB meatball between two giant doughy pizzas, because the buns are like 6 inches thick. So you are eating a "burger pizza slice" where you get bites of just bread, bites of bread with some meat, a bunch of meat, then veggies, then bread again.

u/ScarletDarkstar 3d ago

Yep. $6/lb. is OK for prepared food, but only if you'd want to eat it. The whole is not greater than the sum of the parts here.

I buy a 1/4 or 1/2 of a cow every year and freeze it and then I don't have to buy beef for a year. The Amish Butchers will cut you a good deal when you buy bulk.

Honestly I’d take the Achilles. $15 would barely get you a standard burger here (in a “proper” burger place like this)
