    Well I didn't really have a good place to put this so I put it under Wild Game since I used my family's venison burger.
    Well this started lastnight when I smoked my burger instead of browning it in the frying pan. I was smoking a Porketta so I make seperate chambers one for the Porketta and one for the burger.



    Here is the burger all done ready to rest for the night.


    The tator tot hotdish all spiced up and ready for the tator tots and the smoker.


    All loaded with tator tots ready for the smoker.


    I put it on the smoker at 325-375 for a hour and a half and here is what came out





    Another shot.


    Updates to follow in a few minutes once I eat this baby.

    Burger on the bottom then put some mixed veggies and a can of cream of mushroom soup and then put tator tots on the top. Man this was good. I can't wait for the wife to get home then we will get an honest opinion. I usually put katchup and horshradish sauce all over it but no need this time. It was too good!!

    Oh yea and I also seasoned the burger as I smoked it and I also added a bunch of random seasonings before added the tator tots.

    You didn't say which wood you used for the smoke. Which one did you use?

    I used my UDS filled with Lump wood and put apple chips in it. This won't be my last one thats for sure.

    LOL----MUST have been really good:

    You posted at 10:13 "before eating any", then at 10:21 you posted "how good it was". It didn't need a very long taste-test!


    How 'bout emailing us some!

    Great idea! We make that in the oven, but I will definately have to try that in the smoker! [​IMG]
