Fat chance: Just try to consume the Big Fat Ugly

If you're taking a road trip back east, make sure you stop in Champaign, Illinois, where you can try to wrap your hands around one of the biggest sandwiches around. The Fat Sandwich Company specializes in, yes, fat sandwiches, and the fattest of all is the Big Fat Ugly.

This sandwich is as big as a football and costs $25 -- but if you can finish it in under fifteen minutes, the Big Fat Ugly is free.

It takes two Amoroso rolls to hold the 22 ingredients: four cheeseburgers, the fillings for a double cheesesteak and a chicken cheesesteak, gyro meat, grilled chicken, bacon, sausage, mozzarella sticks, chicken fingers, chicken nuggets, mac-and-cheese bites, fried mushrooms, jalapeno poppers, pizza bites, onion rings, hash browns, American cheese, mayo, ketchup and french fries.

It's now officially on my bucket (of chicken) list.

But in the meantime, is there any sandwich in Denver that can give the Big Fat Ugly a run for its money -- and calories?
