NEW YORK (AP) — Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s are cramming a summer cookout into one burger.

The upcoming menu item is made with a beef patty that is topped with a split hot dog. The meaty duo sits on a layer of Lay’s potato chips between hamburger buns. Ketchup, mustard, tomato, red onion, pickles and American cheese will be thrown in, too. The burger will have 1,030 calories and 64 grams of fat.

Fast food chains have been trying to outdo each other with outrageous menu items to stand out. Wendy’s, for example, offered a cheeseburger topped with pulled pork last year.

Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s are calling their new burger the Most American Thickburger. It goes on sale at both locations on May 20.
