I had a rare (well, medium rare) opportunity to watch a gentleman attempt to consume a 51/2 pound Graveyard Burger recently at the Wagon Train BBQ in Rotterdam.  I'm not sure to this day if he finished it, but I strongly doubt it.  Kudos to Bill Morro for giving it the old college try.  Here's what went down (and what didn't)

Wagon Wheel BBQ is a very interesting place, by the way.  It has a cool decor and a lot of firearm memorabilia, including something from Custer's Last Stand, I'm told.  (For awhile I thought it was going to be Bill Morro's last stand too!)

Here is the whole fam-damily right before "dinner was served".  - Bill, Angela and the kids.

And now, here's the video clip…. I hope you can stomach it!

Bill didn't know going in that one of the owners, (Richie, coincidentally),  had put him on a time limit of 30 minutes.  That may have changed the game a little bit, but I'm still not sure it would have made much difference in the end.

I actually don't know how much was left on his plate by the time I had to leave myself, so I am waiting for a follow-up report .  I will let you know the results on Monday on the air.

Hats off to Bill once again.  If you'd like to try this, BTW - you are cordially invited to stop down to 671 Mariaville Road and go for it!
