Grab some Pepto, and feast your eyes on the 30-pound grilled masterpiece that is the Beer Keg Bacon Burger Pizza. Grill master Charlie Sims was inspired by the TV show BBQPitBoys, especially the popular episode featuring the beer-can bacon burger. His competitive nature made him wonder how he could top that.
So he ran to the store to spend $110 on 17 pounds of 80/20 beef mixed with three pounds sausage, a pound each of ham and pepperoni, a gallon of homemade tomato sauce, green, yellow and red bell peppers, mushrooms and four kinds of cheese. He molded it around a beer keg and threw it on the grill for a gigantic carb-killing new invention.
He tells Nola:
“It was a huge hit. It made a little over 30 pieces, and we had about 20 people here. It was great. Everybody got destroyed.”
I can’t imagine the food coma after that meal. Check out more photos after the break.
