    Burgers on a square bun?

    Square burgers goes good with desert burgers

    These two think so anyways!

  4. Hello Case.  FANTASTIC looking burgers.  I have always used 80/20 chuck.  I have heard about mixing several different cuts to make a burger.  The mix I was thinks of was chuck, short ribs and brisket.  From what I have seen on some of those cooking shows like DDD the mix seems to go over big.  There is also a show on the food network called Meat Men".  These guys are a "well known" meat supplier in New York.  They mix meat cuts to make a "signature" burger for some of those high dollar New York restaurants.  Thought it might be fun to play around with.  Maybe even try throwing in some pork butt?  [​IMG]   Keep Smokin!

  5. Hello smokewood.  Now if you are gonna come to next years meeting you are gonna have to curb that leg lifting thing.  This place happens to be a high class trailer thrash site!  They do have standards to uphold.  Leg lifting is only allowed in designated areas!  [​IMG]   Keep Smokin!

    Thank you! I have mixed different cuts but I gets too expensive! Seven bone roast is good too. I have added ground pork into the mix. One if my favorite mix up to do is 50/50, ground pork, ground chicken (thighs) Garlic, fennel, basil, salt, pepper. Spinach and feta on a toasted bun, super tasty!!

    And since it is Breakfast time in my neck of the woods a few more burgers to wet the appetite!

    To start the morning off healthy how about a basil turkey burger:

    Followed up with a piled high ground chuck burger:

    Gotta squish those down to get your mouth around em:

    And last but not least the infamous Burger Dog 1.0

    I smoke all winter long! Currently blowing a steady 30knots, with gusts around 50 and raining. I'll be firing up y mini-wsm tonight to smoke up something tasty! Not sure what yet!
  14.       Never thought about smoking burgers before, I make plenty from goose breasts and wood pigeon breasts, I'll have to give it a try. I used to make sausages out of the pigeons and geese buts when I got a burger press that was the end of the sausages. I must be doing something right as I get asked for any "spare " burgers by friends and family.

    These are chilli, cheese and pickle goose burgers.

    I have bust my burger press, it was a plastic one from Lakeland I think it cost a tenner but eventually it cracked.  Can anyone recommend a good burger press that can churn out 5" burgers. I know I can do them by hand but I like a burger press, it's an OCD thing!

    6" dia. pvc pipe cut about 2"-3" thick, press with your hands, or make an insert from HDPE plastic or wood. Cheap burger press.

    Hey here's another idea, here we get Hummus that comes in a plastic container that is about 5" dia. buy two, eat the hummus, wash the containers. put your meat in one, use the other to press. If you wanted smaller burgers get cotttage cheese or for slider sized use yogurt containers!

    DS, Have you ever heard any of the following quotes?

    "Don't you ever throw anything away?"

    "I didn't know you wanted to keep it."

    "What are you going to do with that"

    "What is that?"

    "You find a place for it"

    "I don't use it, you find it"

    Just wondering, I have your back.
