Utica, NY (WIBX) - The burger that captured the taste buds of judges at the 2011 NYS Fair during the Best Burger Contest hosted by the NY Beef Council is....(drum roll)...The 8 Pointer Burger! The monster burger was created by the owners of South Trenton Pub in Trenton, NY. Ralph and Karen Dittenhoefer decided to enter this popular burger, which was already on their menu, for a chance to win the Region 4 (Utica) competition. Ralph and Jean O'Toole with the NY Beef Council were guests on First Look this morning to talk about the burger dubbed an "East coast meets West coast creation."

Here are some of the images taken before they were devoured...Did you expect them to last?
