As Christine mentioned, today is National Burger Day. So here is my submission to honor the occasion. I decided to go a bit Hawaiian style with this one. First, let me share with you the brew that accompanied me on this cook. It is called Primo Bombucha. I'll post it again with the details of it later in the beer thread. You'll see what kind of influence it exerted in my results.

Next, you might wish to see the wonderful sauce with which I used to glaze the patties and buns. Who else has tried it?

Image

I used ground pork for this one, and went indirect. Direct grilled some "char-amelized" red onion as well.

Image

Here you get to see the first instance of where I "bombucha'd" my cook. Oooops, I toasted my buns just a wee bit more than I wanted. Gratefully, machs nichts, cause it did not put the hurt to the taste. You can see how I spread some of that Kona glaze with the sesame seeds on the buns, and I topped the patties with Deluxe American cheese.

Image

First plating with sweet potato fries.

Bombucha #2... Somehow I managed to smear my lens again, Doh! I've got to get with Canada's idea and get some of those removable UV filters pronto. Anyway, here's the zoom-in. You can see that I also included a lovely slice of pineapple.

Image

And finally, a little more cross-sectional analysis. What a wonderful Island treat and get away this one was! Mahalo, Brahs! :cheers:

Nice looking burgers, BC! Too bad about the buns, though. :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

With the Hawaiian theme you should've made Spamburgers but I guess ground pork is close enough. :wink: I like the idea of the sesame seeds, too.

Great looking burger. We did some plain ole American style bacon cheeseburgers last night for Natl. Burger Day. I didn't even bother to snap any pictures of them cooking or my burger. I had to go and steal this off my wife's Facebook page (yeah, I've converted her from looking at me funny for taking pictures to her taking her own now.) Simple 1/3lb burgers with two slices of American cheese some bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and onions. Nothing fancy, but oh so good. Hope you don't mind me jumping in on your thread.

The truth is when she gets really invovled and pulls out the big camera (I think that was an iPhone pic), her photography blows mine away. I wish she would take pictures for me more often.
