So while I went to one McDonald's at 10:30am for the McGriddles, our photographer Cole Saladino staked out a different location for the Big Macs at 11am on the nose. If you can't tag team, though, you probably could just go to one McDonald's at 10:55 and get the breakfast, and then wait 10 minutes until 11:05 to get the lunch. We weren't worried about the half-hour the griddle cakes would be sitting before they were photographed because Jeremy Glass would be eating it, and he's fine with putting most things into his body, and vice versa.
Then, secure enough sandwiches
Once you get over the huge blow that All Day Breakfast doesn't include McGriddles, get more of everything than you think you'll need because it's important to have space to troubleshoot should something in the build process go awry.
