Uruguay knows how to start the week off proper.

More than a thousand barbecue fanatics in Uruguay grilled up 12 metric tonnes (26,400 lbs) of beef on Sunday, setting a new Guinness world record while promoting the country’s succulent top export.

Army personnel set up a grill nearly 1 mile long and firefighters lit six tonnes of charcoal to kick off the gargantuan cookout.

Some 1,250 people grilled the beef and about 20,000 spectators cried with joy when a Guinness judge confirmed the barbecue record had been broken.


In a world that seems to exponentially grow worse and worse each and every day it is always great to hear when people throw a party like that. Keep on cookin’ Uruguay…..keep on cookin’.
