The huge meaty feast took two hours to cook and took two men to lift it out of the oven. 4 pounds of cheese were added, along with a pound of salad leaves and 20 slices of tomato.

“It is a monster. It is not bulked up with anything. It is absolutely 100 per cent pure beef, with herbs and seasoning.” said Dave Cossar, owner of JD’s Grill in the Devon city.
