It stops your patty from becoming a meatball.

I also don't know the % of the ground meat I got. I bought it from the Bohemian meat shop that I got that pork butt last week. Not sure if they have any standardization.

re: Best burger recipes


I do have Cosmic Cow seasoning LINK

ingredients are: black pepper, salt, spices, onion, garlic.

Would this be appropriate substitution to trying to mix my own? Also, is there a rule of thumb of how much I should use for 2 lbs? Same with W sauce etc.

re: Best burger recipes


Most common mistake is trying to church them up too much. I like salt or Tony's, fresh ground pepper, maybe Worsh. Handle the meat as little as possible when forming patties; don't overwork.

80/20 chuck. Salt, pepper, tex joy, Sweet Baby Rays, cut open one link of boudin and dump contents into bowl to mix.

Only one link of boudin though unless making a shitload because the burger may start to fall apart if too much rice.

Never did the boudin thing. What does it do for the burgers!? Sounds good though

re: Best burger recipes


Are you doing these on the BGE? If so, you won't need to dimple them.


Just like anything else, start with good meat. The best burgers I make are with beef tenderloin trimmings. I like to use Bad Byron's butt rub on my burgers. Also, I like to add mesquite wood chips to the egg when cooking. Stabilize egg at 350-400, throw mesquite chips on, wait a couple of minutes, and throw burgers on. 4 mins per side for medium rare. 5 mins per side for done.


Post pics when you are done.

re: Best burger recipes






2 lbs lean ground beef
2 teaspoons steak seasoning
2 -4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup sliced sweet onion (grilled or sauteed)
4 ounces diced green chilies or 4 ounces jalapenos
4 slices monterey jack pepper cheese
4 pineapple rings
1 cup thick teriyaki sauce (or barbecue sauce)
4 leaves romaine lettuce
4 kaiser rolls
2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine

Directions:

1 Prepare your onions ahead of time and have them cooled.
2 Mix beef with steak seasoning and garlic. Shape into 8 very thin patties.
3 On top of 4 patties, place 1 slice cheese, and 1/4 of onions and green chiles (there will be leftovers chiles).
4 Top with remaining 4 patties, sealing edges well to create 4 fat, hot stuffed burgers.
5 Grill burgers.
6 Meanwhile, also grill pineapple slices until black char marks appear.
7 Spread butter or margarine lightly on kaiser rolls, and grill until slightly toasted.
8 Assemble burgers by slathering on teriyaki sauce on each roll. Add one pineapple slice and lettuce leaf; top with one burger.
9 Serve with additional teriyaki sauce for dipping! ENJOY!

Ground deer from the processor, it is 85/15. Salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I hate a burger full of stuff. That makes it mealtoaf. Grill it to barely medium.

Toasted or grilled onion roll or bun other than regular white buns. Thick slice of onion, tomato, and bread and butter pickles. Mayo and stone ground mustard. Provalone or blue cheese. No pickle with the blue cheese.

Perfection, imho.

Great flavoring. Little juicier I think or that might be Sweet Baby Rays? Seasoning is nice though. They KEY is NOT going overboard with the boudin or you will have burgers falling apart.
