Why do people climb Mt. Everest? Because it’s there. Why would Brad Sciullo, a chef in an Italian restaurant in Clearfield, PA eat a 15lb burger? Just to “see if he could”, that and an unbridled hatred for his cholesterol and colon.
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.
The mountain of beef is the product of Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub, about 100 miles northeast of Pittsburgh in Clearfield.
Sciullo, 21, of Uniontown, said he was surprised he finished the sandwich Monday. “About three hours into it, things got tough,” he said.
Yeah, I’m pretty sure that “tough” feeling you felt were the arteries to your heart clogging.
According to pub owner Dennis Liegey, the burger included a bun, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, onions, mild banana peppers and a cup each of mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and relish.
What, no bacon? Pussy.
