After a short hiatus, Burning Man is finally returning to the vast expanse of dusty, flat earth – Black Rock City. Many people mistake Burning Man’s gifting ritual for a “barter economy” but the truth is people don’t expect their gifts to be reciprocated. You can trade a funny story of your rave experience or a dark secret for a shot of whiskey, but don’t expect to get anything in return as a gift. The gifting ritual hinges on the idea that the event should not be tainted by commercialism, which is why you don’t see any food vendor at Burning Man. Since nothing is sold at Black Rock City, it’s better to bring premade food and reheat it on a barbecue or campfire at your campsite and RV!

The other myth is that Burning Man is just a music festival like EDC. Well, that’s far from the truth. Every year, Burning Man features a plethora of enormous, experiential artworks rising out of the dust. Some artworks are seven-story tall sculptures. It’s an event that celebrates art and most importantly, it’s a community rather than just a festival! The artworks are monumental and outlandish so bring somethings unorthodox to match the theme! You can bring Big Deal Burger’s The Nunchuck Norris Cheeseburger. It’s a stack burger of beastly proportions just like the enormous artworks at Burning Man! It boasts a single cheeseburger served on a toasted brioche bun, topped with smoked brisket and other goodies.

If you’re looking for more outlandish burgers of planetary proportions like that, then look no further than Big Deal Burger. Known as the new virtual concept of the pitmaster – Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, Big Deal Burger serves barbecue burgers with pit-smoked meats. The hickory smoke gives you a taste of the authentic Texas Barbecue!
