Semi - Smoked Burgers, Corn & Strawberry Stuff

Discussion in 'Grilling Beef' started by smoking b, Aug 21, 2013.

  1. Due to unforeseen circumstances I was unable to do the smoke I wanted to today. I still wanted to have some smoke flavor in my meal so I had to come up with something quick & easy.

    The problem was that my smoker was being used to finish cold smoking my CB.


    What I decided to do was add these in with the CB.


    Some burgers that I ground myself. I left them soak up the hickory smoke for 1 1/2 hours.


    After the burgers were in for an hour I put the corn on the grill.


    A half hour later the corn was done & it was time for the burgers.


    Here they are cooking nicely over charcoal.


    Done & on a roll made using Roller's recipe  [​IMG]


    And for dessert - strawberry stuff.


    Another super easy to make, very tasty treat that will have you craving more  [​IMG]

    Ok the burger took on a nice bit of smoke flavor that complemented the charcoal nicely - very tasty. The grilled corn was a nice side & the strawberry stuff was a great dessert! This was nothing fancy but a good, easy meal that still had some smoke flavor in it.

    Note: I would not do this with store bought burger. This was ground by me & I knew it had been handled properly & had not been in the danger zone for too long. Too many unknown variables with store bought burger for me to take the chance...

      Burgers and corn look good. Did you soak the corn?  Now you have to come clean on the 'strawberry stuff' ! Looks kinda like homemade strawberry ice cream!

    Looks tastee! You ever throw a couple a slices of your belly bacon in with the beef when you grind? Its pretty dang good. I do it now after having to do it because there is NO fat in ground meat anymore. The most fat I can get here is what they call 80/20 lean which really means like 7 % fat and 5.00/lb. I refuse to even call it hamburger, its all speciality ground meat!

    You supper looks good man.

    Looks great. I laughed at the post title... "strawberry stuff" hehehe..
     
  6. Thanks Mike  [​IMG]   The corn was only soaked for about 10minutes before it had to go on. The strawberry stuff is similar to ice cream - sort of like ice cream stuff but different  [​IMG]   We had it all the time when I was a kid & I've continued making it since it is very easy & doesn't take an ice cream machine. 
     
  7. Thanks Foamheart  [​IMG]   Yes I have thrown some of my bacon in before - usually ends & especially when making bologna or snack sticks.
     
  8. Looks like an awesome meal from here! Don't ya love grinding your own burger? I gotta make some of that "frozen stuff".
     
  9. Thanks Disco  [​IMG]
    Thanks Mike  [​IMG]   That's what my mom always called it when I was growing up - strawberry stuff  [​IMG]
     
  10. Thanks Alesia  [​IMG]   I do love grinding my own burger - much better than what you get at the store!  I have to take off for a bit but I will get the recipe up for the strawberry stuff when I get back.
