Mallie's big burger -- did they use a thermometer?
Posted: February 24th, 2008 - 6:55am by Doug PowellA Detroit-area restaurant owner said he believes he has broken the world record for ''largest hamburger commercially available.''
After 12 hours of preparation and baking, the 134-pound burger emerged Saturday at Mallie's Sports Bar and Grill.
The ''Absolutely Ridiculous Burger,'' made with beef, bacon and cheese, was delivered on a 50-pound bun, sells for $350, and orders require 24 hours' notice. Flipping the burger required three men using two steel sheets.
That's all nice, but did they use a thermometer to acquire data for doneness? Regardless of the size, stick it in.
