    We smoked some monster burgers on my Brother-in-Law's smoker the other day. The patties were hit with around 4 hours of charcoal and some mesquite for maximum flavor. They turned-out pretty damned good and the inlaws got a pretty good kick out of them.

    Here they are about 45 minutes into the smoke...



    MANY beers later, I proudly pose with my dinner hehehe.....
    I assure you I wasn't chuckling the following morning!



    A closer look...



    A better shot of my Bro-in-Law's smoker...



    The smoker was built from an old hydro-pneumatic water tank with a busted diaphragm. I was sure I'd taken some better pics of it but couldn't find them :(

    Thanks for checking in on the QVIEW,

    Tom

    Looks like they turned out good. How many oz were they?

    I have no idea. All I know is that we bought the biggest buns we could find and about 15 lbs of ground beef. I mixed it up with some of my burger marinade. They had to be over a pound each when they were cooked. They were actually like meatloafs on a bun - Had a nice crust on the outside and very tender inside. Smoke ring and all.
