625-Pound Burger At Alameda County Fair May Be One For The Record Books

PLEASANTON (CBS SF) — Some very ambitious cooks tried to make history at the Alameda County Fair Saturday when they attempted to grill a 625-pound hamburger. If successful, it would be the world’s largest commercially available hamburger.

Fair organizers said it was for a good cause. Individual bites were sold for 99 cents, and the proceeds went to the Alameda County Food Bank.

KCBS’ Tim Ryan Reports:

Officials from the Guinness Book of Records were on hand to verify that the burger was bigger than the 595-pound burger that currently holds the record.

The big burger will be a whopping 1,375,000 calories, which is enough to feed one person for almost 2 years.

Trimmings include a 110-pound bun, some 50 pounds of cheese, 20 pounds of onions, 12 pounds of pickles, and 30 pounds of lettuce.
