9.  Get the Meat Sweats and Go Home Victorious - Take on the mother of all beef challenges. Throw out the calorie counting and bite into the Stellanator – a massive meat mountain weighing in at 4.5lbs. and 4,900 calories.  Few have finished the burger piled high with every possible burger topping (seriously…more people have been to the moon)!
