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
1980 pounds (898kg) in all, at 68m long and 18 inches (46cm) wide. That's a sandwich! After all the fuss was over, the sandwich was divided up for the Life for Life Academy.
