World's Largest Hamburger

In 1982 Rutland hosted the “Grand Daddy of All Celebrations” when it went into the Guinness Book of World Records with the cooking and eating of the World’s Largest Hamburger. That year, between 8-10,000 people came to sample the tasty 3,591 pound burger. One half of the grill is still on display at Sanderson Field in Rutland.

A DVD documentary from the 1982 Guinness World Record feat of the world's largest flipped hamburger was produced and sold for several years. Unfortunately, the quality of the DVD has eroded. But! Good News. You can watch it on the Rutland ND YouTube page at Rutland Centennial Celebration. The Main Event, cooking and flipping the hamburger, starts at about 12:27 in the video.
