The Big Lad

Elder Penman and his missionary friends went to a restaurant called Build a Burger in Belfast.  The challenge?  Eat a 36 oz hamburger in 30 minutes.  THEY DID IT!!  (at least 2 of them did!)

Information below is from

Food Challenges have become increasingly popular and our BIG LAD Challenge is no exception. Over 2500 people have tried so far with just over  70  managing to demolish this monster burger. Is it the most popular Food Challenge in Northern Ireland.. quite possibly!

Elder Stanley is ready!
THE BIG LAD is 36oz of Beef in a Traditional Belfast Bap and, in keeping with the Build A Burger philosophy, you choose your own sauces and toppings. You have 30 minutes to complete the Challenge and, if you're successful, win yourself our BIG LAD tee-shirt!
The current professional BIG LAD record holder is Randy Santel with an impressive time of 8 minutes and 52 seconds.  Our amateur record holder is Brian "titus bramble" McCloskey with an equally impressive time of 11 minutes and 33 seconds!

The Challenge cost is £20, payable before the Challenge begins, and the £20 is non-refundable even if the Challenge is completed. We require 24 hours notice so that we have the bread available. We source our Belfast Baps from Lucy-Annies Bakery in Downpatrick, it's impossible to find a traditional old-style Belfast Bap in Belfast!


THE BIG LAD  Challenge is a fun event with it's own soundtrack and we like to take plenty of photographs. Anyone not wishing to have their photograph taken should advise us of this in advance. Spectators and Cheerleaders are more than welcome, just let us know how many are in your party so we can have a table reserved.

Buildaburger reserve the right to use any photographs or images taken during our Challenges on our Facebook pages, Website or to promote the Build A Burger brand.
