Eating contests and Eating challenges around Kona & Denver

Vegas #3

That is challenge #3 I am doing when we're in Las Vegas. Here's another view:

LBS: A Burger Joint is in the Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa. And these photos are not the challenge. Kind of, but not. This is the Extreme Burger which is: six half-pound patties loaded with American cheese, smoked bacon, a Portobello mushroom, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles, LBS Burger sauce, spicy mustard, herb mayo, "ghost" peppers (the hottest chili in the world, as confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records) and a pound of fries.

But that was their Extreme Burger. This was the challenge when nobody had defeated it. But competitive eater Ron Koch finished it in late October. He got to rename the burger, and the management (who didn't think anyone could do the Extreme) decided to add five (yes, FIVE) more 1/2-pound patties and another pound or two of fries! Jesus!

So now the challenge is the Undertaker Burger. Ron's nickname. Eleven 1/2-pound patties. Again, ELEVEN 1/2-pound patties. And all the other stuff. Yikes.
