    That link is not available to non-Comcast subscribers. Here is a link at CBS NEWS:

    This time around, Burger King is using the promotion as a charity fund raiser for Help a London Child.

      I'll just stick with the Whopper! I wonder how much it would be to add truffles?

          I'm only charging 10 bucks for my Kobe burger. Time to raise prices!

            A burger made with Japanese Kobe beef for $10? How do you do that?

              We have a local cattle rancher who raises Wagyu (Japanese) cattle for domestic consumption. He & his crew eat at the restaurant quite frequently, and have even brought their Japanese counterparts to try Midwestern cuisine.
              We were able to cut a sweetheart deal with his meat processor. I make more bottom line on my Kobe burgers than my regular burgers (ground by a local meat processor.)

              Tonight, I ate a Kobe burger with sauteed portabella mushrooms. It was heaven!

                Seems like your next step is a BPT made with Berkshire pork!

                    Half-pound burgers.

                    Yesterday, we sold 9 of them to one table. It turned out to be the visiting Japanese business people checking on the quality of the beef. We passed the test.
