Record 900kg cheeseburger...

10-feet wide whopper tastes 'really good'

A Minnesota casino has cooked up a world-record bacon cheeseburger that's 10 feet (three meters) in diameter and weighs more than a ton.

The behemoth burger was served up Sunday at the Black Bear Casino Resort near Carlton. It tipped the scales at 2,014 pounds (914 kilograms).

Guinness Records representative Philip Robertson verified the record for biggest burger. He called the feat a result of "remarkable teamwork" and said the burger "actually tastes really good."

A Duluth News Tribune report says the previous mark was a mere 881 pounds (400 kilograms).

Black Bear's burger included 60 pounds (27 kilograms) of bacon, 50 pounds (23 kilograms) of lettuce, 50 pounds (23 kilograms) of sliced onions, 40 pounds (18 kilograms) of pickles and 40 pounds (18 kilograms) of cheese.

It took about four hours to cook the patty. A crane was used to flip it.
