Biggest Bite


TORONTO — The Whopper? Double Big Mac? Triple Baconator? That’s child’s play, at least according to one ambitious grill master.

The streets of downtown Toronto were filled with the distinct scents of charred beef earlier this week, when famed barbecue chef Ted Reader and his team set out to break the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest hamburger.

The burger, which tipped the scales at 267.7 kilograms, was prepared using a custom-made barbecue and is currently awaiting confirmation of its record-breaking girth by Guinness officials. Adorned with enough lettuce, pickles, onions and tomatoes to fill an all you can eat salad bar, the final product is said to have nearly tripled the weight of the former world-record holder.

The day was not all unrestrained gluttony however, as proceeds from the event were donated to Camp Bucko, a charity children’s camp for burn victims.
