We went to Sam's yesterday to pick up some supplies for a chili cook-off contest next week. We wanted to try a test run today, because our chili recipe is too hot for normal people. You have to wear a headband to keep the sweat out of your bowl when you eat it. We bought extra ground chuck for stuffed burgers. We bought enough for about 10 - 10 oz. burgers. We smoked 2 for dinner and foodsavered & froze the rest. They were stuffed with mushrooms, onion, garlic, & swiss cheese. Then just before they were done I put another slice of swiss on top. We sauteed the mushrooms, onion, & garlic in olive oil first, then let it cool before stuffing. At first we were having trouble with the meat getting stuck in the press even with spraying Pam before each burger. Then we figured out if you put saran wrap on each side it pops right out all sealed up nice. So here's a few pics.
This is Judy stuffing them.
Then she figured out the saran wrap trick.
And out pops a perfect burger, all sealed up tight.
Next into the WSM, they look a little lonely all by themselves.
After adding a slice of cheese, the're done.
We had a little stuffing left over so we put it on top.
Here's a look at the inside.
Thanks for looking. Now it's on to the chili. Will let you know how that turns out.
