Feeding the multitude

SYMBOLIC as the Yellowbelly is to the Isisford community, and is celebrated by anglers who frequent the local rivers and streams plus huge monuments acknowledging the revered fish, comes an addition to the fishing fable.

On Saturday, July 25, Isisford residents witnessed the unveiling of the community’s newest Yellowbelly icon.

In front of a 60-strong crowd, Rob and Julie Anderson, from Ando’s Food Barn, unveiled their Yellowbelly Burger — a gastronomic giant made from 2kg of mince, grated carrots, diced onions and some secret sauces.

The bun, made by Schutler’s Bakery in Blackall, has enough dough to make two and a half loaves of bread.

The burger ingredients also included a mountain of salad and six rashers of bacon, along with some delicious home-made relish. The burger measures 580cm long and 180cm wide.

Reminiscent of feeding the multitude, the burger was sliced-up for patrons to sample and maybe take-on the challenge of eating it solo.

Rob says he welcomes individuals to have a go at eating this burger, and have their names recorded on a trophy, along with the time to consume the monster.

A couple of locals have already accepted the challenge, so watch this space.
