CLEARFIELD, Pa. (AP) — A chef at a western Pennsylvania Italian restaurant ate a 15-pound burger with 5.2 pounds of toppings in 4 hours and 39 minutes. Brad Sciullo, of Uniontown, is the first person to successfully eat the huge burger at Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, said pub owner Dennis Liegey.

The burger — called the Beer Barrel Belly Bruiser — include a bun, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, onions, mild banana peppers and a cup each of mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and relish.

When asked what possessed him to eat a burger that big, the 5-foot-11, 180-pound Sciullo said: "I wanted to see if I could."

Some days, I feel like doing this myself. Read the whole story here

Oh yuck! I've never understood this kind of thing. Is it more a guy thing than a chick? I know some ladies totally get into competition eating but oh my. Can you imagine weighing yourself today and then getting up tomorrow and weight 20+ pounds more? Uck.
Don't mind me though. I'm going through a "meat looks and smells disgusting" phase. Don't ask me why.

Notice, he doesn't have a weight problem...that's what I find weird. It's usually skinny guys who do stuff like this!

My question: where did they get that bun from? I guess they made it themselves!
