FOOD lovers are being issued a challenge of gigantic proportions by a Redditch pub in the name of charity.
The Duck Inn in Oakenshaw has launched its burger challenge for 2013 which will see people tasked with chomping six 6oz beef
burgers topped with six rashers of bacon, six deep fried battered onion rings, six mushrooms, six slices of tomato and lettuce, six slices of cheese and six rings of fresh onion, all in a flavoured bun with relish, mustard and a good portion of spicy chilli beef.
They will also have to tackle a portion of the Pheasant Lane pub's popular cajun seasoned thick cut chips.
Burger lovers will have 20 minutes to demolish the mountain of food and if they complete the challenge they will be rewarded with a t-shirt, certificate and their photograph will take pride of place on the pub's hall of fame.
The challenge cost £19.50 and must be pre-ordered, with a percentage of the money going to Macmillan Cancer Support.
It follows on from the pub's Steak Challenge introduced last year, which gave people an hour to eat 80oz to 150oz steaks.
* TO CELEBRATE the launch, the Duck Inn is offering one lucky Standard reader the opportunity to take on the burger challenge for free. To enter, answer the following question: How many ounces of beef is in the Duck Inn's giant burger? Send your answer along with your name, address and contact details to Burger Challenge, Redditch Standard, Church Green East, Redditch, B98 8BP. Deadline for entries is Friday, January 18 at 5pm.
