    The 99 Cent Eat-A-thon crew has a new challenge!

    What: Denny's Beer Barrel Pub Burger Challenge

    Event: The 2lb Pub Challenger
    Two Full Pounds of Beef! Run through the garden. If you eat ALL the burger in one hour you will receive a Denny's Pub T-Shirt, a completion certificate, 50% of the price, and you're put into the Hall of Fame!

    See the burgers here. The 2lb is in the top right corner.

    When:
    Saturday August 22nd, 2009

    Where:
    Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield,PA


    Video of some brave guys completing the challenge.



    We have at least three willing participants, including myself, who plan to tackle the challenge. This Saturday I plan to make (2) 1lb burgers to simulate the 2lb challenge. I will attempt to eat them within one hour. Can it be done? Stay tuned to this thread for the latest on this gut wrenching challenge!
     
  2. Have fun with your cholesterol!
     
  3. Sounds fun and good but wouldn't go all the way to Pa for it.

    Haha, lots of walking on the treadmill!

    But ugghh, I did the 2lb challenge practice session over lunch. Each burger had 1lb of angus beef, divided into 3 patties. The first one went down pretty quick, in about 12 minutes I think. The second one became a challenge, and I finished it all except 1 1/2 patties of beef. I had to lay down for about 30 minutes to let it all settle, it was quite a powerful lunch..lol


    It's going to be a real challenge, but I'll give it a shot! I actually recorded the full hour of me trying to eat the two burgers. I may just post some screenshots, as you could imagine the video got kinda boring at parts. I'll post them up later tonight!

    Sadly, I didn't either! I had a few close calls after calling it quits, but all stayed in one spot after. One week tomorrow we do the real deal.

    We made the journey to Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, PA today. Leaving at 9:45am we arrived at Denny's around 11:15am, quicker than expected. We picked a table in the bar area near the hall of fame wall for inspiration. One member couldn't make it do to other obligations, however we did order him a 2lber to go which we brought home to him.

    Luckily we got there when we did, as the place filled up fast. It took a good 30-40 minutes for the burgers to arrive. When they did the whole place was in shock and awe. Then they took our pictures and we could start. Now this thing is 2lbs, after cooking. Before cooking it's about 3lbs of meat, which is like woah. We basically just ate it in pieces and I mainly ate the meat, as the bun was huge. About 40 minutes in we both slowed down and it was starting to set in that it wasn't going to happen. I was stuffed to the point of getting sick, but I figured I wouldn't push myself to that point. The hour passed and we both put a white flag in the remaining burger to call it quits. We both FAILED the challenge, but it was a fairly good burger and it was all about saying that we did it. I put all the pics up on my Facebook, you can view the album by going here:

    Warning to all vegetarians, some of the photos are graphic!

    The next challenge will be a Cici's Pizza Challenge between a few of us coming up next month probably. I PWN at eating pizza, I think I can become victorious!

    Haha, his gf was watching us both each time thinking we were actually going to hurl. Someone else was doing it also when we were there, but not sure how they made out. They seem to have winners almost every week they post on the website. A 40 some year old woman completed the 3lb burger in 20 minutes, insane. They called her "rubber gut" I think!

    WTG Kenny for eating as much as you did. That burger was huge! It wasn't the most appetizing looking thing either. I'm looking forward to the Cici Challenge. Mangiare molto!!!

    That's awesome! I want to get a 100lber just to have my picture taken by that. Gotta get a big gang together to help eat it though. Let me know if anyone is going to up for that..haha

    Oh heck I forgot to to mention how it went on Saturday! He got one step closer eating all the toppings and bun at 10 minutes each. He had 40 minutes to eat the burger but said the burger had a different texture and was unappetizing. The other guy didn't stand a chance..haha

    The beginning of March we are going to the Arnold Classic Expo in Columbus, OH again and going to the Ohio Deli to do the Dagwood Challenge. Then on the way home we either are stopping at Denny's again or a place in Pittsburgh that has a 3lb Gyro challenge. It's kinda ironic we are going to a fitness expo and then shoving all this really health food in after! Either way I'll have pics.
