    into the smoker they go at about 175* or so for an hr and some [​IMG]


    REMEMBER to grease the grate!!![​IMG]   dang nab it man [​IMG]


     with the AMPT smoker this is great [​IMG]


    one of the toppings wish I would of had some smoked but was out,,,, gotta do what you gotta do[​IMG]


    on to the 500* gas grille - I am drooling right now [​IMG]

    Looks great! Yesterday I welded up 1 expanded steel grate and it looks exactly like the one you have in the picture. I gave it 2 coats of flax oil and seasoned it on the propane grill. Worth a try.

    Great looking burgers DS! I love reverse searing. The Mini-WSM is perfect all in one unit for doing the reverse sear! I recommend building one. It would look great on the shores of Priest Lake smokin and searing away.

    I have one but mainly use it for cold smoking my cheese. yes that would look great - Thanks
    Those greats are great every once in a while I will take them to BBQ grill heat them up and clean them and put another coat of veg oil on them for a nice petine like a cast iron skillet works great. hope yours comes out great.  I think I have one extra if you need it ???? Size

  14. Looks great DS! Question, does that A-1 seasoning actually taste like A-1 Steak Sauce or something else entirely?

    Thanks Bluto, ya a little like a-1 very good flavor, this was the first time I used it and put the chipotle in with it so really couldn't tell, it was like 2bucks so I thought what the heck, got it home, opend it and smelt it and smelt great - started sneezing right away,  Will do more this week with it and let you know.

    I really think rub on a steak would be very good.

    Thanks Steve

    Learn something new everyday. I have never done reverse searing. Looks great and by the results it tasted great. Love your style, and getting kids involved in the burger making. Reinhard

    Just a note next time I think I will set smoker at 220 and put on for about 1hr for some of the burgers (momma???)  she wasn't a fan on that rare of one, and next time I will show a money shot.
     
  20. Reverse sear all the way! Nice work.
