Forget the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest. That's peanuts by comparison to what just went on at Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Uniontown, PA.
Brad Sciullo, who works at an Italian restaurant, became the first person to conquer the Beer Barrel Belly Bruiser, a 15-pound hamburger with 5.2 pounds of toppings: lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, onions, banana peppers and a cup each of mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and relish.
It took him 4 hours, 39 minutes to chomp it all down. Onlookers raised mugs of beer in salute to the feat.
