The Battle of the Burgers

There is more than three pounds of ground beef, 12 slices of bacon, a dozen slices of cheese, with 12 onion rings.

Dale Kay is in the photo with the monster burger above.

This monstrosity of a burger is being served up at Smokeys, a new restaurant in the Black Country, Walsall, West Midlands.
They have been open for several weeks now and no one has completed the challenge of eating the 12-inch burger in an hour.

Four friends started up Smokeys restaurant in hopes the company will be able to offer apprenticeships and one day become a chain.
The four friends are: Dean Keys and his brother Dale Keys, David Corr and John Cadrick, and they were inspired by  Man vs Food and their visits to America.

Yes, this is a really big burger, but the 'world's largest burger' was 'constructed' at the Alameda County Fair in California. (see photo below)

Weighing in at 777lbs, is three feet thick and five feet in diameter. Guinness have approved the feat as a world record, beating the previous 'holder' from Canada by 187lbs.

But, we congratulate Smokeys, and if we are ever in your neighborhood, we'll take you up the burger challenge.
