The 8-Pound StrasBurger is a gigantic beef burger that is available on the concessions at Nationals Park in Washington. This burger's patty is entirely beef made from a combination of ground brisket, chuck and short ribs. Under the burger bun is American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickle chips and their secret sauce. The burger with all the toppings and bun weighs a hefty 8-pounds.

With this summer's baseball season just beginning, this burger is sure to make a statement, and has already received a lot of media and fans attention. Eating this monster means one would be intaking 10,000 calories not including the fries, which may be a heart attack waiting to happen. The 8-pound StrasBurger comes to a total of $59 and would definitely be a challenge for two people to finish. Stats for Jaw-Dropping Hefty Hamburgers Trending: Older & Chilly
