WITH four layers of meat and a side of pork crackling and fries, The Spotted Cow's new creation is not for the faint hearted.

The Spotted Cow owner Phil Coorey said the new Triple Threat burger was so much more than the name with slow-cooked pulled pork, angus beef pattie, chicken schnitzel, bacon, melted cheese, lettuce tomato and home-made barbecue chipotle sauce on a brioche bun.

"We wanted to create something to keep up with everyone else these days," he said.

Mr Coorey said during a brainstorming session they were inspired by food locally and overseas and chef Nicole Croker came up with the idea that he was excited by straight away.

"It sounds like a bit much, and for some it is, but it's been really great too," he said. "Some people are not having lunch or not having breakfast and then coming down."

Mr Coorey said while some people had been psyched out by the burger, he had seen young teenagers tackle it and one 'legend' who was able to make his way through two of the monster creations, with a crowd watching on.

"I think in this day and age too, people really want to be entertained and we are hoping that this entertains people when they come down here and it has been great fun," he said.

"It's the first of many new food options that we are going to come up with. We have always been known as a little bit different down here."
