Try if you dare: Pub serves up monster 60oz burger challenge

Grub's up: Pub owner Craig Harker, 32, with the Big Ben 10 burger

A PUB has cooked up the UK’s most calorific burger ever — a 12,000 calorie feast containing 1.5kg of beef topped with 25 bacon rashers.

The Big Ben Number 10 comes with a health warning with bosses at the George Pub and Grill saying they will pay £500 towards a gravestone if any customers die eating it.

The £28.95 meal is stacked high with 10 juicy beef patties, weighing 60oz, and dozens of American cheese slices.

Adventurous eaters can pay an extra £6.90 for extra bacon rashers and a further dollop of liquid cheese over the whole monstrosity.

The dish, also adorned with shovel loads of chips, was introduced by pub owner Craig Harker as a challenge to customers with eyes bigger than their bellies.

Craig, 32, said: ‘This burger is absolutely stacked high with juicy meat from top to bottom — 60oz of beef tipped with so much cheese and 25 bacon rashers.

‘If people want, they can add a further dollop of liquid cheese over the whole dish, which, by the way, makes it even tastier.’

Craig warned the monster burger is not for the faint-hearted, however, and said the big eaters can truly claim ‘bragging rights with friends’ if they can swallow it all.

To check it was doable in one go, Craig invited competitive eater Kyle Gibson to the pub in Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, to give it a go.

Hungry Kyle, of YouTube channel Kyle V Food, completed the entire meal in an astonishing 21 minutes and 56 seconds, including the chips.

He described the burger as the ‘best he’s ever tasted’ and even had his five-year-old daughter Isla give it the thumbs up.
