05/20/2005: There appears to be a big burger war on, and it's escalating...
Karen recently mentioned the new "Beer Barrel Belly Buster", the 15 pounder from Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, PA. At that time, the Belly Buster was the largest hamburger available in the United States.
Not to be outdone, Costner's Grill and Entertainment in Easely, SC, has debuted Costner's Carolina Colossus, a 19 pound (actually, some reports say 19.1 pound) monster (pics at the link; unfortunately they're very small pics).
The Colossus is kinda like Peking Duck, though--you've got to give Costner's advance notice that you're going to order it. Nothing in the story about any special prizes for finishing the thing.
Well, do I hear 20 pounds? Anybody up for 25?
Life in America: nothing succeeds like excess.
