A few years back when this site was in its infancy...I took on one of the first Angus Third Pounders ever served in America, with the Angus Deluxe. If you were living under a rock, or just want to relive a classic check it out here. A couple months after, with booming sales, busting belt lines, and a strange sense around America that it was possible for a legit burger esque burger being produced at McD's, the Angus line became full time menu items. No small feat for any gimmick of any kind at a fast food eatery. Months passed and I was tipped off from g&gg reader Filet that he was hearing wild and illicit stirrings of a BBQ Bacon Chipotle Angus, being advertised on radios and being passed around in back alley drug deals. I wasted about 10 gallons of gas and probably a good 4 hours of my life traveling to McDonalds on couple of occasions in search of this white unicorn of a sandwich. Its not just every day that a gimmick sandwich reproduces another gimmick...it would be like as if an egg laid a rooster.
