the thurmanator

mark lyle has done it again. on saturday, march 28th at three in the afternoon, mark lyle "the human vacuum" consumed two entire thurmanators with all the fixings. showing up with his requisite bottle of sports drink, he bellied up to the table and got it done. for those not familiar with the thurmanator, it is (from the bottom up): bun, mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickle, hot peppers, 12 oz burger, bacon, cheddar, another 12 oz burger, sauteed onion, mushroom, green pepper, ham, american and provolone cheese, and a bun to top it off. this monstrosity is served with a huge pile of greasy thurman's fries. even half of one thurmanator is enough to bring a grown man to his knees. here's a shot of mark with the first thurmanator:mark never ceases to amaze. keep an eye on my twitter feed for announcements on when he'll strike again.
a word of advice to anyone who would like to tackle a thurmanator (or any of thurman's other delicious offerings) be prepared to wait! thurman's popularity has grown exponentially since the man vs. food episode featuring the thurmanator aired.
