Don't be alarmed by the headline folks. Briquettes Smokehouse in Ashtabula, Ohio, is operated largely by Browns' fans, so it's not like they've named a menu item after dismal Browns' QB Brandon Weeden out of anything like respect.

“A tender all beef patty, cooked perfectly, and smothered in toppings which we systematically pick off right before your eyes while you watch helplessly; all before dropping the burger on the ground right before it is set down in front of you.”

To thicken the metaphor, Briquettes says they intend to serve the burger with a half-full glass of beer.
