Last Saturday, July 2, the Alameda County Fair in California was home to a Guinness World record breaking 777-pound burger, made by Ovation Food Services and Juicys Catering Services to beat the previous record holder, a 590-pound burger in Canada. The 777-pound burger featured 110 pounds of bun, 20 pounds of onions, 12 pounds of pickles, and 30 pounds of lettuce, for a total of about 1,375,000 calories. It took 13 hours for a 10-person crew to cook the burger. Inside Bay Area has photos of the burger being cooked and constructed.

Pieces of the burger were sold for 99ยข, with proceeds going to the Alameda County Community Food Bank.
