Napoleon Grills - 590 pound Burger Crushes World Record

May 10, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Toronto, Ontario - Crowds of onlookers were on hand in downtown Toronto to witness the creation of what could be the largest hamburger in the world. This megalithic burger weighed in at 590lbs, after garnishing with 50 pounds of cheese, 20 pounds of onions, 12 pounds of pickles and 30 pounds of lettuce all on a monster bun it almost triples the current world record.

"We started cooking the 300lbs of beef this morning at 4am and by 12 noon were ready to slide the massive burger on to the bun and add all the fixin's," said an exhausted David Coulson, National Advertising Manager of Napoleon Grills," Napoleon had a specially designed, hydraulics-enhanced, "Monster Grilling Machine" that was able to flip the burger midway through the cooking process." This custom grill took over 3 months to build and design.

According to Guinness the official title is "Largest Hamburger Commercially Available," a record currently held by Mallie's Sports Grill and Bar in Southgate, MI. The record is not official yet and award-winning chef Ted Reader says that, "We should be hearing back from Guinness in a week or two for the official confirmation."

Individuals and organizations were invited to place a bid on the massive record-breaking burger, which raised over $8,500 benefiting Camp Bucko, a camp program for children with burn injuries.
