    I'm hungry enough to give it a shot. Of course, I'd have enough leftovers to last me a month.

    How do you even bite it? I don't know if I could round up 20 friends who all like their burgers the same doneness.

    Who's eaten a Primanti Bros sammich in Pittsburgh? Those things are over a 1000 calories each, and they're the regular fare, not some specialty meal. This is not to say that their sandwiches aren't completely crazy.

    My lunch breaks? They're too short - just barely 7 hours. I have to really step on it when I drive to Pittsburgh for lunch, or I just won't make it there in 3 hours! :frown:

    I really don't understand any of these food eating competitions, or why anyone would try to eat a 15 Lb burger. We have something like this in Portland, where the challenge is to eat ten-pound steak or similar.

    The two things that have most surprised me in the US are the size of the meals served in West Des Moines Iowa, and the sweet tea drank in the south. Though in the deep south, I once had some bacon that was I think about 90% fat. I took a bite before realizing that I was basically served a plate of fried pig lard.

    In Iowa, I ate at the only place near the hotels, and the food was absolutely great, but my gawwwwd, they serve enough to kill a horse. My steak was a roast, the salad was easily enough for four people or more, there were several types of bread, a bowl of butter, another bowl filled with sour cream, and another with horse radish....I'm sure there was more, and I don't remember what all was put on my table, but it was absolutely absurd!

    Sweet tea is regular tea which is heated, loaded with sugar to the point of saturation, and then drank cold. In some areas in Alabama and Georgia, for example, it is served almost as automatically as is water.

    I am reminded of a comic book character (desperate dan) and his cow pies,
    was he in the beano or dandy? any way a person who can eat a 15lb burger must larger than life.
