Pub Offer To Pay For Headstone If You Die Doing Their Burger Challenge

Pub Offer To Pay For Headstone If You Die Doing Their Burger Challenge

I think we all know someone who'd have a crack at this burger challenge offered by 'the meatiest pub in the UK'.

It's probably (well, definitely) not good for your health, but don't you worry about that - the kind lot at the George Pub & Grill will pay £500 towards your headstone if you die while you're eating it.

Described as the UK's most calorific burger ever, the monstrosity contains a heart-attack inducing 12,000 calories and includes 1.5kg of beef topped with 25 bacon rashers.

The Big Ben Number 10 costs £28.95 ($34.96) meal is stacked high with 10 juicy beef patties - weighing 60oz all together - and dozens of American cheese slices.

If you are the sort to go all out, you can pay an extra £6.90 ($8.33) for more bacon rashers and a further dollop of liquid cheese over the ridiculous meal.

The dish, which also comes with a shovel load of chips, was introduced by pub owner Craig Harker as a challenge to customers with eyes bigger than their bellies.

Craig, 32, said: "This burger is absolutely stacked high with juicy meat from top to bottom - 60 oz of beef tipped with so much cheese and 25 bacon rashes.

"If people want, they can add a further dollop of liquid cheese over the whole dish, which - by the way - makes it even tastier.

"This burger will go down as bragging rights with friends, and I can see all the big eaters going for our Big Ben Number 10.

"With over 12,000 calories, the meal comes with a warning to eat at your own risk, but there's some compensation - if it kills you, we'll pay up to £500 for your headstone.

"We are the meatiest pub in the UK, serving up dishes like the UK's biggest steak - at 220 oz - so it's fitting to open up with a new menu where the customer can pick a host of burgers with any number of patties, from one to 10.

"People can make up their own minds without having salad and healthy-eating fads rammed down their throats constantly."

To check it was doable in one go, Craig invited competitive eater Kyle Gibson to the pub in Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, to give it a try.

Hungry Kyle, of YouTube channel Kyle V Food, completed the entire meal in an astonishing 21 minutes and 56 seconds, including the chips.

Kyle said: "That burger was absolutely delicious - the best I've ever tasted.

"It was so soft, full of flavour, and filled a small hole. Overall, it's a quality burger."

He even had his five-year-old daughter Isla - who loves her steak medium-rare - try the burger and she gave it the thumbs up.

Craig, from Teeside, has come up with many weird and wonderful menu choices for years - from the cheese-soaked doner meat Parmo Kebab, to the largest Christmas dinner ever.

Try this challenge at your own risk, lads.
