If fairs have taught us anything, it’s that pretty much anything can be fried, put on a stick and sold for an absorbent price. In that spirit, the folks at Peep My Eats created this deep fried Big Mac that was made by coating the burger with eggs, covering it with breadcrumbs, and dipping it in the deep fat fryer and impaling it on a stick for quick and easy food porn.

Check out a video of of this abomination being birthed into the world after the break…

Red Robin is rolling out a burger and drink combo to promote the upcoming Terminator Genisys movie that hits theaters on July 1st. The burger is a beef patty topped with roasted jalapeno, pepper-jack cheese, shredded romaine, bacon, tomatoes and jalapeno aioli on a jalapeno-cornmeal bun.

The Blue Haze cocktail is Captain Morgan spiced rum, blue curacao, pineapple juice, agave nectar, and sweet and sour with a lemon squeeze served in a special tiki glass with a strategically placed cherry to mimic the Terminator’s red eye. Both will be available June 15 through August 23rd.

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.

Because you can never have too much meat on a burger, Carl’s Jr and Hardee’s are introducing the “Most American Thickburger” on May 20th. This behemoth will feature a beef patty topped with a split hot dog and a layer of Lay’s potato chips.

Forget about the diet because this thing packs 1,030 calories and 64 grams of fat.

You’ll be able to get one for $5.79 on its own or for $8.29 as a combo with fries and a drink, because you know you want fries with that.

There’s kiosk where you make all of your selections, so of course someone had to see just how big a burger they could build. You start with an “artisanal bun” and two quarter pound patties, then add:

10 slices of sharp white cheese
10 slices of pepper jack cheese
10 pieces of bacon
10x pickles
10x red onions
10x guacamole
10x tortilla strips
10x lettuce

If you love hamburgers, then this hamburger hair bow is going to be your new favorite accessory. From the product page:

Features felt tomatoes with painted seed details, gathered satin ribbon lettuce, fleece cheese slices and felt meat patties sandwiched between two fluffy fleece buns with hand beaded “sesame seeds”.

It measures roughly 5.5″ x 3.5″ and is 2″ thick. If that’s too much of a mouthful, there’s also a smaller version that measures 4.25″ x 2″ and is 1.5″ tall. Both are attached to alligator clips to hold them in place.

whole-damn-farm-burger.0.0

Say hello to the “Whole Damn Farm Burger.” This 2,000-calorie, 10-inch tall beauty was crafted by Splendid Kitchen in Manchester, England and it features… well, pretty much every farm animal between two buns.

We’re talking two beef patties, a fried chicken thigh, something called “bacon jam,” normal bacon, “ham chunks” and barbecued pulled pork. Geez, how do you even take a bite out of that thing?

Culinary mad genius Tym Bussanich has done the unimaginable: he somehow found a way to stuff an onion ring with a burger patty. He used an onion circle, wrapped it up with bacon, and then packed the circle with ground burger meat before deep-battering and then frying it. Just… wow.

Two teens in Australia bought this McDonald’s burger for a friend in 1995, but the friend didn’t show up. So, instead of finding its way into someone else’s stomach or the trash, it was stored… for 20 freaking years. There are plenty stories about old McDonald’s burgers floating around the Internet, but this one might be the oldest. As you might have guessed, it is also completely bereft of mold.

It is now rock hard and lives in a padlocked wooden box. Imagine the surprise of some future treasure hunter who digs that sucker up.

If this wasn’t weird enough, the duo recorded a song called “Free The Burger” that explains the whole story. Check it out after the break along with an additional pic.

In what is surely terrible news for anyone who treats their car like a mobile cafeteria, an Alabama man was pulled over and cited for distracted driving in Georgia after he was observed eating a McDonald’s Double Quarter Pounder for two consecutive miles. The offense, which I will refer to as “DWB” (driving with burger) is part of an increasing crackdown on face-stuffing drivers in states such as California, New Jersey and Illinois.

Even though a traffic lawyer has reported that the distracted driver law does not explicitly mention food, the man was still considered to be straying from safe vehicle operation and was slapped with a ticket, a February court date and the following sage advice: “You can’t just go down the road eating a hamburger.”
