Stuffed Pizza Burgers with Q-View

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I started out with 1/2 pound of 85/15 ground beef and 1/2 pound ground hot Italain sausage, Ragu Pizza Sauce, fresh mozzarella, and pepperonni. Mixed meat and used my "Stufz Ultimate Stuffed Burger Maker"  ,         (for the first time) to make each patty. Each burger has a slice of mozzarella, Tbsp. of Pizza Sauce and six pepperonni slices. and then onto grill. I used Kingsford Mesquite Charcoal on my Weber Kettle. My son manned the grill and as always did a great job. My wife toasted each hamburger bun with butter and some garlic salt. They turned out great!


As for the "Stufz Ultimate Stuffed Burger Maker" I found it difficult to work with. I used plastic wrap to keep the meat from sticking to the mold. That worked great, thanks Al (SmokinAl) for that tip. I just found the device to be difficult and not very smooth in it's use. I only made three burgers and each one was better than the previous one, but the smoothness of operation never got any better. I beleive I am going to go ahead and order me the "Pocket Burger Press" and give that a try. From watching the "how to" video it looks like it would be easier to use. IMHO, but time will tell.


And now for the Q-view

Looking good. Keep the meat cold and spray the mold with oil. Another tip is to put the mold in the freezer first, no matter what brand it helps. I still have a el-cheapo kroger burger press that I use to make me a sausage patty in the morning for breakfast quite often, some day's I caveman it. banana_smiley.gif

The burgers look great there David! Let us know how the pocket press works. I found the stufz a little cumbersome at first, but after making quite a few burgers, you develop your own technique & it's really quite easy to use.

Where is the money shot (after you take a bite or slice it)? Stufz burger looks really good thou. Try smokin' them on your lang w/hickory and a bit of mesquite, takes about 1.5 hours if ya make them large. I noticed after a 6 pack of tall boys (beer) they are tuffer to make. I would like a Stufz made from stainless steel, I think it would work better, the plastic is a bit flimsy.

I tried out my Stufz yesterday, too.   It was a bit awkward, but it did a great job in the end. You're in trouble if you don't use the wax paper or saran wrap trick. I went with the wax paper; I had trouble with the saran slipping around and I kept thinking I'd get it caught in the burger. One of the things I had noted in my stufz research is that the amount of meat in the top and bottom can be important.  I didn't want to end up with giant burgers, so I tried about 4 - 4-1/4 oz on the bottom and about 2 oz. on top.  Like I said, mostly great, one minor leak but I found it in time and just pinched it back up.  Filling was carmelized onions, sauteed shrooms and blue cheese.  SORRY, No pix - it was messy, and I wasn't grilling or smoking them - just did them under the broiler.

I have been using mine for about a year. You need to remove the burgers and kind of hand seal them. Good looking burgers man

I thought I had checked them all and snugged them up, but one popped a bit. It was a little hole and I found it before flipping so I was able to pinch it back shut and it held fine.

Great looking pizza burgers, we kinda burned out on them, but yours has me planning my next ones, might try smoking them rather than grilling.
