How I got started on collecting burnt food & my goal to 10M burnts! (if you don't mind a little reading)
Let me first introduce myself to the community! I have been an avid collector since 2009 and have had well over 100+ individual item collections within the time frame. I've always wanted to set up an achievements thread where I regularly update my progress, but never got around to it (lazy!). So, now is the time where I step forward and do it BIG (or nothing at all). Many may doubt this elusive goal of 10 million burnt food, but I am a very patient and committed person when it comes to doing something I enjoy.
You may ask yourself - Why on earth are you collecting such useless items?! Well, burnt food has always been items which people do not think twice before dumping on the floor and I am here to give them some love and a home. How did it all start? It was a few years back when there was a trade limit and plenty of junk trading was going on (due to manipulation clans). But out in the sea of never-ending spam, something struck my eyes. I see an individual typing out - "Selling white partyhat for 100k burnt lobs + cash". I thought this was a great deal (but insane) at that moment as partyhat's ge value and street value had a massive difference. So I waited for a few more minutes observing anxiously to see if anyone actually had 100k burnt lobsters. Unfortunately, no one did.
...this is where my journey began. I have not gone for the 100k burnt lobster, but monumentally exceeding that by 9.9M burnt food. This thread will serve the purpose of keeping track of my progress and letting others know about my out of the ordinary goals.
Before I made threads stating I was buying burnt food, I had about 550k burnt food which took a few years to accumulate. The 550k burnts were all obtained from world hopping and were bought anywhere between 10-100gp ea. This was a slow process and I don't know why I didn't think about the forums. I did sell/trade a lot of burnt food during that time (sold around 300-400k). I was predominantly f2p during the time I started (for those who didn't know, f2p burnt food buying takes more effort and time, meaning you get 2x less burnts for 2x the effort - if not more). I mainly traded with people to obtain my burnt lobsters (which explains why I have the most of that since the start of the thread).
Fast forward to 5th November 2014, I've achieved my long term goal of 10M burnt food!! What's my next step? 10M burnt sharks! You may think: THAT'S IMPOSSBLE!! This will take much longer than 10M overall burnts no doubt, but it is still possible. Currently I know of about 6-7M burnt sharks active in a few collector's banks. However, there are many more floating in non collector's banks - probably 9-10M ish mark (?). Hard to give a probable estimation, but that's just what myself and a few other notorious burnt food collectors have came up with.
Hopefully that wasn't an eyesore for most of you to read. I am currently buying all types of burnt food (FTP & PTP) from 150ea.
Feel free to PM me in-game (my private chat is always on) about selling or donating any burnt food or just any questions you were curios about. If I am not online in-game, please post here or message me and I will get back to you ASAP.

NOOBY BURNT FOOD ADVENTURE (not going on anymore)
From 15th Nov 2014, I'll be using my nooby to buy burnt food from worlds while I go for 120 mining on my main account (Ayeshun). I will still buy burnt food/NON GE tradables on it, but since mining is really AFK, why not make some collection gains while I have another members account.
No dead set goal on this account yet, but each 100k is a milestone. Buying burnt food from various worlds take a lot of patience and the ability to type "Buying burnt food/weeds 150ea" ALOT. End goal will probably be 1 million burnt food and the world's fastest typer title. Also, knowing where to buy and when to buy will greatly increase the chance to gain more items, as opposed to buying at a bad time where you can get 5-10x less yield (buying at bad times will waste alot time and demotivate you). Weeds is also a side item I buy with the burnt food. From previous rates, every 3-4 burnt food = 1 weed. Hopefully this trend follows all the way! Not really setting any restrictions on the account except the use of forums, friend's chat (Miffdor) and from other large collectors. This challenge will solely be from shouting in worlds and get trades from the community. My price will be a firm 150ea for both burnt food and weeds, nothing higher or lower. By the time I reach 1M burnt food, I would obtain approx. 250-350k weeds.
Since progress is pretty hard to spot on my main account, I'll be leaving the burnts on this account. However, I will count it towards my overall amount. Starting fresh is always nice and the progress is fun to watch, so I'll be sharing my little adventure with aspiring collectors, collectors and people who are interested!

Interesting trades I've done with burnt food and abit about them :
19/06/13: Ur2fatforme is one of the most unique burnt food collectors out there I have seen to this day. He has been collecting the burnt shrimp and burnt rocktails since September of last year (10 months) for 500-1kea. I bought them off him for 1.5kea and 10kea for the burnt rabbits. Don't even think there are 5k burnt rabbits in the game right now due to it being one of the rarest burnt food (you need to cook the rabbit in a special way to obtain burnt rabbit or you get burnt meat ). Ur2fatforme has sold me a few hundred thousand burnt food altogether. I would have taken a screenie for other trades, but I forgot to. Lame, I know. :c Nonetheless, Ur2fatforme is one of the greatest burnt food collectors in my book.
27/06/13: Almost at 1m burnt lobsters!!! Farming Nemo's burnt lobsters were from "Pumpkin Lord" who had the most burnt lobs ingame 2 years ago. Pumpkin decided to sell his collection to "Pb andJ" (who has over 35m potato seeds!!), who then sold to Farming Nemo, and now in my hands for safe keeping. To my knowledge, Pumpkin bought the burnt lobsters for insane amounts on the forums years ago. Still unsure why he would sell an amazing collection for such a low price though!
04/07/13: Over 100k burnt meat!!! Kissed You has been collecting burnt meat and burnt chicken for over a year now (on and off of course) and she has decided to take a break from the game and let me continue her collection. Originally, she didn't want anything for them, but I didn't feel right accepting so many burnt food for nothing.
In the past, I have helped burn about 4k of each for her which took a long time. This was back when burning cooked chicken and meat were bearable. You have to do them individually now, which can make one go insane if one ever deliberately burns them for a collection.
04/07/13: Again, Ur2fatforme has sold me 8.7k burnt shrimp that he'd obtained from another collector by the name of Oo Pingu oO (who has 140k burnts). Traded some wooden shields and 2 pirate hats as that what Ur2fatforme is collecting right now. This trade also included about 15k other misc burnts (including 1.3k rocktails which I am wanting to get 100k of one day) and about 800 sandwich lady items.
06/07/13: Bought some lobs n sharks for 250ea! Thanks to Thamikeyman for selling me them. Puts me at 995k burnt lobsters ;D
09/07/13: Finally! One million burnt lobsters! adskjf yey ^-^ weirdo. Ur2fatforme had my millionth rare black lobster this whole time! Thanks Ur2 ^^ if you ever see this hahaha. Oh and there were quite a few rarer burnts with his trade. i.e 1.7k manta rays and 688 turtles (pretty much doubled my burnt turtles haha). 400ea for them all!
1m burnt swords next? sharks? monks? Only time will tell.
16/07/13: 300ea for 14k burnts! 9.4k burnt chicken ;D thanks to Kissed You again, who sold me a ton of burnt meat n chicken in the past. This puts me at 71k burnt chicken!! Hopefully I can get another 29k somewhere.. haha. Plenty of uncommon burnts in the trade too.
16/07/13: Miffdor, a notorious collector, who influenced many into collecting has sold me his stack of 15k burnt rocktails for the price of 110k buckets. I've been assisting him with purchasing these buckets and in return for 100ea/misc burnts for abit now. With the 100ea rate, I bought the burnt rocktails for 733ea which is a fair deal in my opinion. Miffdor has over 1m burnt sharks!! O ye. two good trades in one day, wadup
27/07/13: Biggest trade thus far. This Involved 1.2m burnts, some misc collection and lots of gp. The trade was with Baptists who has been collecting burnt food for a couple months now and has the second most burnt food in-game to my knowledge (he had 1.2m burnt food altogether). I traded 658m, 10m black knives, 220k burnt sharks and 100k buckets for 40 types of burnts which totalled over 950k. I traded him burnt sharks as that is the burnt food he decided to hold on to. Going to take awhile to gain back 220k sharks, but overall I'm happy with the trade and didn't mind spending for burnts. Up over 730k burnts after this trade yey. Back to pvming bleh. Hit the 3m mark and closing in on 3.5m burnt food enjoy the profits bap . I guess burnt swordfish is up next for the millionth milestone. The trade puts me at 585k burnt swordfish
27/07/13: Dayum.. two awesome trades in one day.. AGAIN! This time it was more of a donation though. Gus Hood who achieved 200m cooking cooked mostly manta rays has given me 28k burnt manta rays. He didn't want me to pay for them which was surprising since it may be the most burnt rays in-game right now. This puts me at 36k burnt rays! Thanks again Gus, if you ever see this
31/0813: Over 20k burnt food bought for 333ea I maybe go on once a week to check up on things so progress has been snail speed. Haven't quit yet, but not as interested in RS as much. Guess we all hit that plateau at some point Still wanting to achieve that 10m burnt food though!!
21/09/2013: Lien's trade puts me at 97k burnt rocktails and over 10k burnt bread! Bought the burnt food for about 500ea. Majority are uncommon/rare burnt food too So close to 100k burnt rocktails! Could this be the first 100k burnt rocktail stack? I wish I knew
23/09/2013: Baptists' burnt food totalled very close to 300k (could've been 400k but ). Over 1m burnt food has been bought from Bap so far! Bought them for about 525ea. This also puts me at 1337k burnt lobsters haha
29/09/2013: Just bought 258k burnt sharks from Trievta for 500ea! Replenished the 220k burnt sharks I traded a few months back Felt odd having 100k burnt sharks haha.
19 Feb 2014: Was surprised with this trade. didn't expect Villager hat to sell me his burnt sharks already haha. Bought it for 387.5ea. Possible future seller as he still has his other burnt food he might be willing to sell.
20th Feb 2014: BIGGEST trade I've done thus far with burnt food. 625ea for 1.6m burnt sharks. This is the largest known collection of them to date. There are 2 or 3 other people with 500k-1m burnt sharks that I know of. These Burnt Sharks were originally from H R I (1m of the bought from Grand Sales aka Host Richest for 1k ea, who was looking to sell for a couple months and was actually offered 1b for the 1.6m Burnt Sharks (but declined). H R I then sold it for a few hundred gp ea to Castle Siege/Seastalker due to H R I wanting to quit and wanted to make a quick sale. Nice profit for Castle Siege/Seastalker, but he has an expensive collection going on (over 7m acorns). Pleased with this trade Took us a few months to come to a concluding price aha
21st Feb 2014: Finally! 100k Burnt Shrimps!! Traded with Grand Sales. 6k shrimps for 6m + 1 burnt per shrimp.
4th March 2014: Almost 60k burnts for 300ea! Baptists decided that burnt food wasn't his collection, so he decided to sell his remaining burnt food and search for other collections. This put me at 2.2m burnt sharks too!
12th March 2014: Literally out of nowhere, Jay N Levi pms me about selling his stack of 180k burnts which surprised me. He has been collecting them for 6 months and decided to sell his collection. This puts me at around 6.4m burnt food now. Getting closer to my initial goal Shame you can't see them properly in second trade screen..
19th April 2014: Reached 7m burnt food with 100k burnt chicken! Ur2fat4me has sold me a couple of my burnt food milestones. I offered to buy the burnt food for 500ea! He's been collecting this stack for about 1.5 months consistently. He's one of the very few that is able to pull that many burnts in that short amount of time and has been doing so for a long time. Heres a footage of this sale and miltstone
25th April 2014: Almost at 8m burnt food did not expect Bondos to sell his almost 1m burnts that soon, but we agreed on a price. He has been collecting burnt food for over 2 years now and has decided to move on from collecting.
20th July 2014 (i think >.< somewhere around this time): Ur2fat4me is a good friend of mine and has helped me in the past 2 years on my journey to 10m burnt food. I believe he's sold me over a million burnt food during this time and I appreciate his effort in helping me reach my goal. Ur2 has definitely made the biggest impact on my burnt food collection to date. Its a sad sight to see Ur2 quit due to a hacking, making him lose his valuables. Hopefully he will make a come back in the future and good luck to him in his endeavours
4th August 2014: A combined 120k+ burnts were bought today from Nature, Camelot and Kitty. Out of the 3 trades, Camelot was the only person I knew prior to the trade. He has been collecting burnts for quite some time and has sold his collection of common burnts to Bondos (who I bought from not long ago). He kept his rarer burnt food (shown in trade) and has cooked his own raw manta/turtles to acquire those burnts. AFAIK Eating Kitty's prev name was Selfie Scape, who bought burnts on the forums/worlds, but decided to sell his collection. From yesterday's trades, I'm around 8.55m burnt food now. Almost the 3m burnt sharks mark and surpassed 60k burnt mantas
6th Sept 2014: Bought 450k and 300k burnts from two people for 250-300ea. They wereboth bought from 'le me' for 150ea or so. le me was approached by someone who hacked Grand Sales (within 24h ago) for 50b. le me also has majority of the 50b in items which he'd bought for 50% of it's ge price. 400k cut dstones, 300m+ p ess, etc for 50% ge price..
9th Sept 2014: Bought my almost 3m burnt shark from BORNAMERICAN!! 600 off 3m burnt sharks. Decided to pay a little extra to anyone with burnt sharks until I reach 3m. This trade also came with a nice stack of weeds
10th Sept 2014: Finally reached 3m burnt sharks Tay Gipper (funny name) sold me my 3 millionth burnt shark! Bought them all for about 200ea
26th Oct 2014: This is the largest known Black toy horsies collection in the game originally owned by Teww. Teww gathered them with the help of I am Buffalo (mod) which took a looooong time. Buffalo gathered about 70k of them (taken over 230 hours), and Teww 50k. Teww sold off the collection to Pieterjan for 500ea, and now for safe keeping in my bank for the price 0f 650ea (I rounded it up to 80m). I'll forever keep this collection as its been one of my favourite non ge item collections from the very beginning.
5th Nov 2014: Finally reached 10M burnt food! After over 4 years of gathering burnt food from collectors, cookers and friends, I've completed my goal. This is not the end though There will be other goals in the future I will be shooting towards. Ur2fat4me sold me my 10 millionth burnt food (as with a few of my milestones). About 400k burnt food was in the trade, which I paid 500ea for (the usual price I pay Ur2fat4me since he was a long time friend and supplier). However, I will not be paying these over inflated prices anymore since I've reached my initial goal. I will still buy burnt food, with a number of goals in mind - such as: 10M burnt sharks, more 100k burnt food stacks, and the one in focus right now: 100k burnt crunchies! Yep, 100k burnt crunchies. I will be looking for people to help me collect crunchy trays or bank deposit boxes since they speed up the process by ALOT.

Progress as of 21st Nov 2014: Swapped the phoenic cbows for broken statue headdresses from revs
All of the items above are non ge tradable collections which will be my main focus now because its more challenging and rewarding to achieve quantity milestones. I've started collecting these non ge tradables on 10th of August 2014 (but a few of them for a long time now) and will continue to do so until I've reached a number that satisfies me (probably 50k for some, 100k for others). I'll update this every few weeks or so, depending on how well my progress has been.
Brief guide on how to get these items and the price I pay:
Free to play:
1. Weeds (250ea+):
Every herb run, you're able to rake up 3 weeds per farming patch that has nothing planted in them.
2. Faruq's toolonomicon (1000ea+):
These purple books can be purchased in Faruq's games shop located in the middle of al kharid. They cost 1gp per book.
3. Rotten tomatoes (100ea+):
Easily obtainable, rotten tomatoes can be obtained from botwatch announcers (for free). Some easily accessible locations near a bank are Varrock east bank, Grand Exchange entrance (using well bank) and Falador's south bank.
4. Celebration cakes (250ea+):
Diango, located in Draynor stocks up to 10 Celebration cakes for 150gp ea.
5. Newspaper (1000ea+):
Newspapers can be purchased from Benny, located in Varrock square. A short dialogue will be needed to retrieve a newspaper for 50gp ea.
Requires access to the Gnome tree, the quickest way to obtain these are from Heckel Fun*h and Hudo, located on the east and northwest side of the first level.
Similar to the above, Heckel Fun*h and Hudo will stock 10 of each Gnomebowl, Batta and Crunchy tins. However, the Gnomebowl, Batta and Crunchy tins can be obtained from a shelf near Hudo which stocks infinite amounts of them.
Rotten food can only be found after a Ghast from Morytania swamp attack you, which has a chance of turning your food into rotten food. Can be easily afked with cheap food, and majority of the inventory should be converted to rotten food within 3-5 mins.
Can be bought from the Wine seller located in Draynor for 500gp ea, this method should be used to buy Celebration candles to maximise time spent. Bottles of wines only restock 1 bottle every 15 minutes, but can be thieved from the wine stall.
From failed attempts by cutting Opals, Jades or Red topaz, crushed gems are common if one has low crafting. If your crafting is too high to make farming crushed gems worthwhile, using a hammer on a cut opal, jade or red topaz can also result in the creation of crushed gems.

Started ACB DIY: 22/01/14
(did not screenie first 4 trips but it ranged from 3.5m-5m)
Progress so far from Ascension dungeon:
Will start killing the bosses once I've reached a minimum of 64 keys of each type. I'm also collecting the Ascension Fragments as a proof I'm killing and not buying keys.
20 hours of Roraius so far (84m):
(Updated every 5 hours!)
15 hours of Rorarius (65.5m):
10 hours of Rorarius (43m):
6 hours of Rorarius:
Number of trips: 21
Hours taken: 21
Luckiest trip: 8 keys (#17 - 6.1m)
*Kills are determined by the amount of Ascension Fragments I've picked up. They drop 5 Fragments commonly and 8-12 frequently, so I will count it as 6 Fragments per kill.
