Back to home Grues Guay

This is another crazy idea from ​​the mayor of Desbiens, Nicolas Martel: cook an extreme tourtière (meat pie) of 3500 pounds (1587 kg) to make even more extravagant his festival, Desbiens Extreme.

To add to the difficulty, this year, the “pies” have decided to enter the Guinness Book of Records for the largest pie in the world and to beat the record of Wildwood, New Jersey in 2012 which weighed 1800 pounds.

A 45-ton crane was installed with belts to lift the rotisserie which was deposited on steel beams.

The scale installed on a Guay crane when lifting the pie indicated a weight of 2120 pounds; new record !
