Let me think about this for a minute. Market ground beef (ie scraps, lips, and well you know) for $3.29 per pound or whole chuck roast for $1.99 per pound. Well that was a no brainer. So I ground up some burgers and seasoned with Weber's gourmet burger. Served with potato rolls and my favorite cold oil french fries. I was going for medium rare but ended up medium well. I guess the fire was hotter than I thought. They were still delicious.

I've never had a bad day barbequeing or fishing. I've just had some that were better than others.

Lookin' good, SCmustardman! It's the wife's b-day party today and I just threw on 4 slabs of babybacks. Guess what I'm having along with the ribs? Cold Oil Fries! :D My wife loooooves them, so she requested those along with the ribs today.

Great looking Burgers Scmustardman,
It’s always better to grind your own meat not just cheaper. I also feel better about cooking burgers to medium-rare when I grind the meat myself.

Brad Olson suggested I put a link here to the Shepherd's Pie burger I made recently. So here we go:

I'll have to agree with SCMustardman's choice of seasoning. I, too, enjoy Weber's Gourmet Burger Seasoning. I use it on burgers and steaks all the time. I enjoy a little worcestershire sauce it there as well.

Started with a 1.37 lb Top Sirloin Steak and cut it into strips.
Image
Grinded it with the fine disk in the KitchenAide and then added Weber's Gourmet Burger Seasoning and Worcestershire Sauce.
Image
Formed it into 4 equal patties, all of which were about 1/3 lb. I don't like my burgers too thick, as I like to add all sorts of toppings. That way you don't break your jaw. :wink:
Image
Then into the fridge they went. Stayed in there and chilled for around 35 minutes. I do this so that way they don't fall apart on the grill. Then onto the grill they went.
Image
The wife is a self-proclaimed "simple girl", so she went with the American Cheese. I'm a "complicated" sort of guy, I admit. :lol: So I went with freshly grated Romano Cheese on mine.
Image
Had these marninating for awhile beforehand. Tomatoes and Onions marinating in Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar. Wow, I love me some Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar. :wink:
Image
The wife didn't use all the "fancy stuff" on her burger, but on the bottom bun of my burger, I started with a thin layer of Mayo, then some Jalapeno Mustard, some Marinated Onions, some Dill Pickles, some Sliced Roasted Red Bell Pepper, then the Burger with Romano Cheese. On the top bun was another layer of Mayo and Jalapeno Mustard, and placed my Marinated Tomato on top of the patty.
Image
Served with "SCMustardman Fries" that the wife made. :wink: I also included the pic of the Jalapeno Mustard used, as well as the Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar I used to marinate the tomatoes and onions. The Jalapeno Mustard is GREAT on dogs and burgers. :P

Bon Appetit !!!

OK everybody,

The weather's getting warmer (at least it's supposed to be) so it's time to reactivate this thread. Let's see those burger creations!

So I made these a couple weeks ago. I think the stuffing was just cream cheese and bacon with a mild bbq rub sprinkled inside. It was a hurried job, as you'll see, hence the poor seal and the cheese oozing out. I topped them with a slice of grilled red onion (which has excellent flavor). Actually, if I remember right, I had to do everything on the CI griddle so these aren't actually grilled.

Nothing wrong with a little escaping cheese. It serves to warn the eater that there's hot stuff inside! :lol:

Yeah this is a good thread to keep going, and I guess I'm going to have to start taking pictures again. A week or so ago, I did some burgers that were really good. I minced some canned chipotles and added them to the ground beef along with sea salt, black pepper, ground cumin, & granulated garlic. Topped the grilled burgers with pepper jack cheese and grilled onion slices.

Stand by for pics - making bacon and cheese infused burgers (which I know have been done a million times, but there's a reason for that). Will be topping with grilled onion and maybe some more cheese.

They who were responsible forgot the onion so no grilled onion.

I really didn't get any telling pictures of the insides of the burger, but I can say that by really getting a good sear on the outside, I was able to lock most of the shredded extra sharp cheddar in which made for a great taste with the smokey bacon.

Mixing it up. I put close to 1.5 cups of cheddar and 5 bacon slices (diced) for 2.5lbs of meat. Also included some "Texas" bbq sauce, cumin, cayenne, paprika, salt and pepper.

Off the grill.

With the grilled green beans and garlic doused with red wine vinegar over the fire (red wine or balsamic vinegar tossed over the veg and allowed to drip down into the fire give the veg a unique and great flavor).
Image

Plated. I topped mine with a blue cheese/Monterey infusion which essentially allows for a sliceable blue cheese.
Image

I wish I would've got a picture of it cut open - the meat had an interesting color with the cheddar mixed in.

Looks great! That's an interesting trick with the balsamic vinegar, too. Did you mince the garlic into the beans?

Dang, CWF! :shock: Those look great! I notice that there are no buns. Are you on a low carb diet? You gotta love those grilling pans. Your beans look awesome too!

I actually soaked a combination of thinly sliced garlic and crushed garlic in olive oil and a bit of salt then added to the green beans when I got them over the coals.

It's not necessarily low carb, but I do keep grains and their derivatives to a minimum. I eat root vegetables and beans occasionally.

That's not to say that, from time to time, I don't indulge in a real pulled pork sammich, or some good cornbread. But for something as regular as burgers, I'll leave the bun out.

I was really not happy about having to make turkey burgers so I though, "I'm going to fix these."

There are some similarities to the last ones I posted. I mixed cheddar and bacon with the ground meat and I had green beans. I'll leave the picture of the beans out, but I'll say that I topped them with a balsamic reduction which seeped under the burger bun and soaked into the bun to add ANOTHER layer of flavor.

Mixed in the bacon, cheese, bbq sauce, and an egg with the...ugh...ground turkey.

Image

Even after throwing it into the freezer for 15 minutes, the meat was still not all that firm. I actually just brought the bowl out to the grill and threw the patties right on as I formed them.

Then the jalapenos:

Then the cheese - one of the rare cases where I used american:
