Burger Urge creates Maroon burger
MORE than 500 monster 'Big Try Day' burgers are set to be demolished by Queenslanders as a show of support for the mighty Maroons during the second State of Origin game.
While Queenslanders hope to continue their winning streak and walk away with Origin victory on Wednesday, another Queensland great is hoping to beat their own record with sales of the Big Try Day burger by Burger Urge.
As Queensland demolished the Blues in the first game, the Burger Urge Big Try Day burger was demolished by supporters with more than 250 sold on game day.
Burger Urge owner Sean Carthew said the burger was one of the biggest culinary creations the business had ever made.
"We made the burger to represent the Queensland team - mighty, meaty and maroon," Mr Carthew said.
"Queensland characters are larger than life and we wanted to create something that also paid tribute to Queensland greats"
For $20, customers are treated to a Mighty beetroot brioche bun, four beef patties, two rashers of crispy maple bacon and a mammoth amount of cheese and BBQ sauce.
"The burger is set to be a hit among Queensland fans, who have two more opportunities to try the Big Try Day, this month and again in July," Mr Carthew said.
The burger is only available on State of Origin game days, this Wednesday and then on July 13.
The Big Try Day burger is available at all Burger Urge outlets, but this excludes DFO and International Airport venues.
