Because everyone loves bacon. St. Louis's Iron Barley restaurant went after the biggest BLT world record this past week, and they owned it. What resulted was a behemoth of bacon perhaps too much even for Epic Meal Time.

This BLT included:

600 pounds of bacon
440 pounds of bread
550 pounds of tomatoes
220 heads lettuce
110 pounds butter
60 gallons mayo
1/4 tank propane for toasting

1,980 pounds in all, at 224 feet long and 18 inches wide. That's a sandwich! After all the fuss was over, the sandwich was divided up for the Life for Life Academy.

If this BLT could meet this burger in some time-food vortex, it's spawn would be the key to winning the war on everything. I promise it. [Riverfront Times]
