I'll tell you, this burger was something special, really hit the spot, but I made it thru, no room for fry's. Great thing about grinding your own burger is being able to cook them rare as I like with no worry, been doing it for over 20 years now. This one's a wrap and I'd like to thank whoever takes a peek for lookin' in. Y'all stay safe out there! RAY

That's one good looking burger, Ray. Got my mouth watering. Maybe I should invest in a grinder.

Thanks Jim! If I had only one food to live on I'd most likely pick burgers, been a favorite my whole life, and I've been around eatin' burgers for quite some time now. This was top three! Thanks for the Like Jim, I do appreciate it. RAY


Big plate of Happy right there .
Almost enough onions for me

Looks perfect Ray David
Never a burger made here without some caramelized onion, better than candy. No maters or lettuce either, when I want a salad I'll just make one. Thank you for the like David, I appreciate it! RAY

Thanks Charles! Even a tabletop hand grinder will fill the bill. Your own fresh ground meat, no red dye, you know what you are getting and can eat it rare as you like, safely! RAY


one awesome looking burger, Ray!! thanks for sharing
Thanks Tbern! The fact that I smoked the coppa really made the flavor come thru, a great way to go! Thank you for the Like, much appreciated! RAY

That's a mighty fine looking burger Ray! Ryan
Thanks Ryan! Got bags to make more coppa, this burger will become standard issue around these parts. Thanks for the Like Ryan, I do appreciate it! RAY

Jesus Ray, that burger is outrageous!! Nothing short of amazing and done exactly the way you like it. not gonna get any better than that my friend. If I had to choose my "last supper" it'd be a tough call between that burger and a nice steak :emoji_wink:

Thank you Robert! If I had your expertise with steaks I'd probably opt for that too, but alas, you are in a league of your own. I've cut the patty weight down two ounces to ensure I finish things off in a sitting, it was tough but doable! Thanks for the Like my friend, much appreciated! RAY
