In four hours and 39 minutes, a 21-year-old Pennsylvania man became the first person ever to finish a seven-kilogram hamburger at a local pub.
Brad Sciullo, a five-foot-11-inch, 180-pound chef, neatly packed away the Belly Bruiser at Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, Pa., on Monday.
The mountain of beef weighed about seven kilograms on its own. After lettuce, cheese, onions, banana peppers, mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, relish and bun were added, the mega-burger tipped the scales at more than nine kilograms.
Sciullo, of Uniontown, said he was surprised he managed to finish the sandwich. "About three hours into it, things got tough," he said.
He was the first person ever to finish the burger at the restaurant, which is about 160 kilometres northeast of Pittsburgh. The pub challenges people to finish the burger in under five hours.
He said he decided to take on the challenge "to see if I could [eat it]."
Sciullo received $400, three t-shirts and a certificate in recognition of successfully chowing down on the Belly Bruiser.
Other people older and larger than Sciullo have unsuccessfully attempted to consume the Belly Bruiser in the past, said pub owner Dennis Liegey.
Liegey said he suspects Sciullo will have a "burger hangover" for some time.
