Update II: I held the draw with Butcher Steakhouse GM Kenneth Arrild yesterday and the winner is maotai. I’ll be in contact with maotai and charlie, who won the merit award for his suggestion (see below). Also of note, the staff told me yesterday that someone ate more than 90 percent of one of these massive burgers. So close and yet half a pound so far…
Update: I sent a list of the entries to Butcher Steakhouse GM Kenneth Arrild and his pick as the best: The Butcher’s Bastard Burger as suggested by Charlie, who gets one of these two-patty monsters as well as fries and four Cokes as his prize. I’ll drop by Butcher Steakhouse in the next few days to meet Kenneth and hold the draw for the second burger.
With a kilo of Australian beef and two kilos of bun and toppings, the massive Butcher’s Burger adds up to nearly six pounds of food fun.*
But what if it had two patties?
So far, that is a beefy beast with no name, so The Butcher’s Steakhouse (see writeup here) has agreed to team up for a contest to give it one. Go to the comments section and suggest a name for this super sandwich–I’m going with “The Calf-o-Lanche“–and you could win one (with fries and four Cokes).
In fact, The Butcher Steakhouse has agreed to give away two of these burgers. One will be decided by a draw that will include the name of everyone who submits a legitimate suggestion. The other will be decided on merit, probably by three men in bloodstained aprons (don’t even think of disputing their decision).
Your name will only be entered in the draw once, though you are welcome to make as many suggestions as you like. The deadline is Tuesday at 2 PM.
* Notice how I’m mixing metric and imperial measures. Just trying to maintain peace in this crazy, crazy world.
