Big Smoke’s Order is a meme from the 2004 video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

History

The meme originates from 2004 video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, in which young gangster Carl “CJ” Johnson comes home from a 5-year absence to investigate his mother’s murder. The meme itself comes from the mission Drive-Thru, in which CJ, Sean “Sweet” Johnson (CJ’s brother), Melvin “Big Smoke” Harris, and Lance “Ryder” Wilson (another friend of theirs) all go out for a quick meal at Cluckin’ Bell, a fictional combination of Taco Bell and KFC. The gang pull up the to window where Big Smoke orders his fatass all the food, This is everything he orders: Two number 9s (for CJ and Ryder), a number 9 large (for himself), a number 6 with extra dip (for Sweet), a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese, and a large soda (all for himself). This complicated order has become a meme.

What he truly ordered.

YouTuber by the name of ComradeWarbear, who made a video of him deciphering Big Smoke’s order from the numbers to what he could’ve actually ordered. The way he does this is by going to the official Cluckin’ Bell website and using their menu on that, and then by listening to what Big Smoke orders, he concludes that Big Smoke REALLY ordered this:

The Number 9s are a Fillet Burger, the number 6 is the chicken wings, the number 45s is a Fowlburger (one with cheese), the number 7 is a bucket of chicken, and the large soda is seemingly Sprunk (the ingame version of Sprite), but many believe it to be e-Cola (Coca-Cola). Remember, everything he orders comes with a side of fries.

GTA San Andreas: How big was Big Smoke’s Order from the game?

GTA San Andreas, since the year of its release all the way back in 2004 has always been a game that is fondly remembered by fans for its wonderful characters and story moments.

The game was a blast from start to end, featuring an outlandish storyline that goes from neighborhood gang wars to government facilities and jetpacks. The story of GTA San Andreas never fails to get a nice chuckle out of you every once a while.

More recently, the popularity of GTA San Andreas reached sky high with the viral memes of its characters like CJ and Big Smoke. One particular moment that has been “memed to death” is Big Smoke’s order at the Cluckin’ Bell drive-thru in the game.

Youtuber Matt Stonie took the challenge upon himself to finish Big Smoke’s order in under 1 hour.

The scene has spawned a large number of memes, and players have dedicated countless hours trying to figure out how large was the order, and what would it like in real life.

Redditors have been hard at it, and finally figured out what exactly the order contains. As the game uses just meal numbers instead of the actual name of the food item, it proved to hard figure out the order.

After scouring through the Cluckin’ Bell Menu in GTA San Andreas, players have figured out what it would look like if you ordered the meal in real-life.

Just to recap what Big Smoke’s order was in GTA San Andreas:

“I’ll have two number 9s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese, and a large soda.”

So to put that in context, here’s the full order:

  • 2x Number 9
  • 1x Number 9 (Large)
  • 1x Number 6 (w/ extra dip)
  • 1x Number 7
  • 2x Number 45s (one w/ cheese)
  • 1x Large Soda

That is abnormally large meal for one man. However, a breakthrough in this analysis suggests that Big Smoke was merely recapping the entire order from the rest of his friends.

CJ, Sweet and Ryder also place their orders, which Big Smoke simply recaps and places his own order. Their orders were:

  • 2x Number 9 (For CJ and Ryder)
  • 1x Number 9 Large (For Himself)
  • 1x Number 6 with Extra Dip (For Sweet)
  • 2x Number 45s with Cheese (For Himself)
  • 1x Large Soda (For Himself)
  • 1x Number 7 (For Himself)

So, in conclusion, he ordered 4 things for himself that includes 1 Number 9 Large, 2 Number 45s with Cheese, 1 Number 7 and a Large Soda. According to the website for Cluckin’ Bell, each of these orders come with a side of fries.

According to the Cluckin’ Bell Menu on the GTA San Andeas’ Cluckin’ Bell fictional website, these are the orders:

  • Number 9- Fillet Burger
  • Number 6- Chicken Wings
  • Number 45- Fowlburger
  • Number 7- Bucket of Chicken
  • Large Soda- Either Sprunk or e-Cola (Sprite and Coca Cola’s in-game version)

All these orders are based mostly around Chick-Fil-A’s menu. However, if you’re up to it, several Youtubers have tried ordering substitutes from GTA in real-life, you can go ahead and try it as well.
