I was thinking that I could make mad bank with a booth at the State Fair that sold deep fried White Castles.

This is Missouri. I'm sure the line would be a mile long.

I got that beat. Behold, the Krispy Kreme bacon cheeseburger. The decline and fall of an empire in only one thousand calories.

Dubbed the "Luther Burger," its Atlanta creators Chandler Goff and Jeff Girard, owners of Mulligan's Bar and Grill, fine-tuned a recipe they found in a magazine and created the artery-clogging cheeseburger.

Horseshit. They watched the episode of The Boondocks where the burger appeared. Either me or ABC News doesn't have a fact-checker and I'm pretty sure it ain't me.

Hmm... Wikipedia claims Mulligan's created it first. I am skeptical. Someone find me a fact-checker.

If the Krispy Kreme burger were itself battered and fried, only then would it be a contender.

But it already *is* fried batter.

Yeah, but I can clearly see the bacon and burger in the photos; there's no crisp outer shell. Weak, I tell you.

A side order of Poutine would make this meal especially heinous.

Deep-fried lard would be nice, maybe with a sprinkle of icing sugar and cinammon.

White Castle Casserole? It's WC burgers, covered in beef chili, EZ-Cheez, and jalapenos, then baked and served. Mmmm.

Or, you could just go with a Monster Thickburger. It's actually healthier to wrap some bacon around a stick of butter and eat that.

Apparently the R&B/urban legend concerning Luther Vandross' actual invention of the Luther burger came first. Then the restaurant version. Then the recent Boondocks episode.

Brats, cut in half lengthwise and broiled in the oven, maybe glazed with a little something, are great.

Nothin' more than a Supersized Hot Dog on a Stick... big whoop...

...you do know that the show the Maury clip came from has been Povich's day job for years, don't you?

...and Hardee's Monster Thickburger is beat by its West Coast sister chain Carls Jr's Double Six Dollar Burger by ten calories (1420 vs 1410), with six less grams of fat, 15 more of carbs, more cholesterol and you haven't even added the bacon yet.

However, my favorite fast food suicide is via Del Taco, whose Macho Beef Burrito comes in at 1170 calories and where you can get a side of Deluxe Chili Cheese Fries at 710 calories. And their spokesman is the same actor who plays Kenny, the gay copy store guy on "My Name Is Earl". And Del Tacos (or, as you may call 'em DTs) are only here on the Left Side of the country. (And I recently moved to where the nearest Del Taco is 30 miles away - I'm doing something right.

This sounds like pure hyperbole but it is very close to being a factual statement.

One stick of butter contains 800 Kcal. but is mostly fat; containing 92g of fat of which 58g are saturated. The bacon (assuming 5 relatively thin slices, cooked) would contain ~250 Kcal. along with 15g of fat / 5g saturated. Combine the two and you're looking at 1050 Kcal. with 107g fat and 63g saturated fats. The "Monster Thickburger" contains 1410 Kcal. along with 107g of fat, of which 45g are saturated fats. Wow, the stick of bacon'd butter actually has fewer calories and the same amount of fat. Sadly, our buttery concoction beats the "hamburger" on saturated fat content; containing 315% of the RDA values for a 2000 Kcal. diet. The hamburger contains only 225% of your recommended daily allowance of saturated fats. So, while this sandwich-type product has more calories than a stick of butter wrapped in bacon, the porkbutter has an extra day's worth of saturated fat without the protein, fiber or carbohydrates. Not nearly the difference you'd expect between a horrific hypothetical snack and a widely advertised, commercially available, ready-to-eat food product.

Wendell, until recently one of the high points of my annual trip to St. Simon's Island was a visit to the Del Taco there; there used to be a number in my hometown but they vanished or were taken over by that upstart Taco Bell. I was surprised to learn when visiting the corporate site you linked to that that location is not only the only one in GA, but the only one east of the Mississippi!

For those who want to feel (marginally) better about their fried foods, there is always deep fried corn on the cob. I have done this and it is really good, especially done with the freshest, sweetes corn you can find. I also cook it less than this recipes specifies.

That's all well and good, iloveit, but if you were really committed, you'd batter and deep-fry that sucker.

Taco Bell is a form of self-abuse. Seriously, Mexican Pizza? I'm surprised Mormons haven't started picketing over that one.

I've just been surfing wikipedia all night long under their "American Quisine" category... I'm trying to lose weight and find decent foods... So I ran across a lot of interesting, new (to me) shit. This is absurd! I loved that Taco Town clip, jesus christ, it's so true.

I was just talking to my partner how I wondered what a deep-fried oreo would taste like.

And oh... growing up I used to make chili cheese dogs with mashed potatos on top of the dog, before the chili. That shit rocked!

And when it comes to sandwiches/sloppy joes, I just HAVE to have chips crushed on them. I love the crunchy textury in my sandwiches... :)
posted by symbioid at 9:45 PM on June 25, 2006


I saw a deep fried oreo at a local street fair here in NYC the other week, but went for the funnel cake instead. Old habits die hard. They were selling like, erm, hotcakes, though.

And godDAMN, iloveit, how is it possible that that burger has the same amount of fat as a stick of butter? It must be freakin huge! I wonder if they would sell more or less monster thickburgers if they advertised it as "the same as a bacon-wrapped stick of butter."

I'll stick with my Quadruple C (Collosal Colon Clogger Combo) from Dangerous Dan's: 24oz burger served with a quarter pound of cheese, a quarter pound of bacon, and 2 fried eggs. Also comes with a large shake (flavor of your choice) and a small poutine. Royale Option: comes with a deep-fried Mars Bar with whipped cream for dessert. Now That's Good Eatin'!

You're right - living in Scotland, these deep fryings seem awfully mimsy.

The strange thing about a deep fried pizza is that it is utterly, utterly delicious. When I lived around the corner from the King's chippie off Sauchiehall Street, I would have one once a week with five fritters (which are mashed potato deep fried in batter). I expect my first heart attack within ten years.

I think I remember reading that a large poutine could have 500 grams of fat. That makes the stonner kabob little more than an appetizer.

I believe that poutine serves as a replacement for the old time standard Canadian hunter's winter meal of a fatty pig's leg and foot.

I really have to try poutine. In fact, I should probably set up a poutine shack in Glasgow on a Saturday night with a sign saying 'Will kill you faster than Scottish food!' on it. Would make millions.
