The Guin­ness world record for the long­est team BBQ marathon is 40 hours and 53 sec­onds and was set by three Ital­ian blokes; Mat­teo, Gio­vanni and Pier­franco. 03.

Your av­er­age snag con­tains an es­ti­mated 32-42% meat. The rest is made up of blood, guts and or­gans. Aussie com­pany Beefeater Bar­be­cues is re­spon­si­ble for the world’s most ex­pen­sive BBQ.
