It took a crane to flip a 2,014-pound bacon-cheeseburger cooked over the weekend at a Minnesota resort, winning the record for world’s biggest burger.
“What I saw today was a feat of remarkable teamwork that resulted in a world record burger that actually tastes really good,” said Philip Robertson, a representative from the Guinness World Records, according to the Duluth News Tribune.
Robertson was on hand Sunday at the Black Bear Casino Resort in Carlton, Minn., to confirm the record. The previous record for biggest burger was a comparatively dainty 881 pounds.
The burger measured 10 feet in diameter and was topped with 60 pounds of bacon, 50 pounds of lettuce, 50 pounds of sliced onions, 40 pounds of pickles and 40 pounds of cheese, according to the newspaper.
