Someone finally did it. A Pennsylvania man spent nearly 5 hours digging into Denny’s Beer Barrel Belly Bruiser, the 15 pound burger (before condiments) I talked about during my Food Competition week.
It took Brad Sciullo 4 hours and 39 minutes to finish a marathon. A meat marathon, that is. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound western Pennsylvania chef is the first person to eat a monstrosity called the Beer Barrel Belly Bruiser: a 15-pound burger with toppings and a bun that brought the total weight to 20.2 pounds.
Sciullo said Monday he was surprised he finished the sandwich. “About three hours into it, things got tough,” he said.
Sciullo failed to mention, “By tough, I’m pretty sure my arteries stopped working for at least 30 seconds making it impossible for me to lift my arms.”
