The Incredible Roast Beast

Most of us, at some point, have slaved away in the kitchen on an epic meal, then stood back at the end, admired our creation and given ourselves a metaphorical pat on the back.

Well, let us tell you now, that your efforts were worthless compared to this incredible achievement. Seattle chef David Varley recently oversaw the biggest roast creation that we've ever seen for a Thanksgiving Day celebration at Michael Mina's restaurant at Levi's Stadium. Alternately titled "Lambpigcow" or, simply "Roast Beast", it consists of a side of Wagyu beef rolled over 24 quail, 12 chickens, eight ducks, six turkeys, two lambs and a pig, all stuffed with chestnut-turkey sausage.

It was held together with a 20-foot roll of garden fencing and secured on a rotisserie with eight giant steel clamps. The finished beast was served alongside 12 turkeys (because there wasn't enough meat in the main event, apparently) and a gravy fountain, which is a water feature that we would love to have in our garden.

Varley documented the whole thing on Instagram: take a look at the photos below, bow down in admiration and prepare to meat your maker.
