El RENO, OK -- Folks fired up the grill Saturday at the 21st Annual Burger Day Festival in El Reno.

El Reno has landed three spots in the 100 greatest burger joints, so it only makes sense to dedicate an entire day to the fried onion hamburger.

Underneath the fog of smoke, 250 pounds of beef, 150 pounds of onion and 350 pounds of bun were cooked and layered with pickles and mustard, to make a 750 pound fried onion burger -- the largest in the world.

"Biggest trick is keeping it cooking even, make sure the fire's good," said El Reno Fire Chief Kent Lagaly. "I think it's the best cut ever, at least it's the best cut since last year."

"It's just huge. It's the biggest one I've seen. I've been to a couple of other ones in Texas and the one in Tennessee. They're not even half the size of this. It's worth it," said Clayton Morse, who visited the festival from Louisiana.

The festival brought smiles to many hungry folks from as far as Australia to Louisiana, who couldn't wait to take a bite out of the giant burger.

It didn't take long for the world's biggest onion burger to vanish.

Last year, about 4,000 fried onion burgers were sold at the festival.
