The burger that weighed 2,014 pounds (914 kilograms) was created on September 2, 2012, by the Black Bear Casino Resort in Carlton, Minnesota, USA. The burger consisted of many smaller patties that were cooked separately before being assembled into the final product, which measured 10 feet in diameter and 3 feet tall.
The burger was made with 60 pounds of bacon, 50 pounds of lettuce, 50 pounds of sliced onions, 40 pounds of pickles, and 40 pounds of cheese. It was also topped with a giant bun that weighed 250 pounds, which was specially baked for the occasion.
The burger took over four hours to cook and required a crane to flip it over during the cooking process. Once it was cooked, the burger was served to guests at the casino for a fee, with all proceeds going to charity.
While this burger may hold the record for the largest burger ever made, it is worth noting that there have been other massive burgers created around the world that have consisted of a single patty. However, these burgers have not surpassed the weight of the Black Bear Casino Resort’s creation.
