Big Smoke Burger hosted Yelp Denver Elites for an exclusive afternoon of Epic Burger Battle proportions. Elites were encouraged to submit their best original burger recipe and duke it out at the event for the Best Burger title. Among the burger recipe submissions three finalists were chosen and revealed at the event for the elites to try and vote and their favorite. The mouth watering contestants vying for the top spot were Phil H's The Lamb Kicker (Wheat bun, Lamb Patty, Ketchup and Dijon mustard, Green Chile, Jalapenos, Lettuce, Jalapeno Harvati, Caramelized Onions), Alissa R's No Name Burger (White Bun, Chicken, BBQ Sauce and Dijon Mustard, Coleslaw, Bacon, Jalapeno havarti, Caramelized onions), and Andrea K's Baa-Baa Baaad Burger (Wrapped in lettuce, Lamb, Rosemary Garlic Mayo, Bacon, Caramelized Onions).
It was definitely a delicously tough decision, but the votes and our taste buds didn't lie. Phil H took home the winning title as well as $50 gift certificate to Big Smoke Burger. Other yummy bites like crispy onion rings, savory fries, and the oh-so Canadian dish - Poutine was served in rounds while guests sipped on Session Lager and Session Black Lager courtesy of Full Sail Brewing. Tyler S sums up the sensational Sunday in her glowing review when he says: "This was a well thought out and deliciously concocted event! Not only was the variety of food plentiful and appetizing, I was happy to get a chance to taste the wide-array of their menu. Also, the poutine was just as good as any I had in my Canada ventures and am happy to have some comfort food replicated here in Denver!"
