Burger night

Every or almost every Friday for the last 10 1/2 years, we've made burger on Friday for supper. For most of the time, each week is a different burger. I use either beef, pork or turkey and/or chicken and make my own. They are more sausage burgers as I will add the seasoning used to make any number of sausages. Tonight was Chorizo burgers.

Obviously when I can, the burgers make it on the grill and using the mantra of add flavour at every step, I put wood chips in smoker box on top of the coals. Who else puts a smoke ring on a burger? :D I keep the lid closed to keep more of the smoke in the unit. I did up some steak fries from parboiled potatoes and added garlic and onion powder

BTW, these burgers should have been last weeks but a not so quick trip to the Emerg for my wife. She has a nasty lung infection (not covid) and was having trouble breathing. She's much better now

Just curious. Out of the 4 types of meat, which one do you think is the best burger?

Looks good. We use a Burger Press to form the patties, but then we grill them as is.

Glad your wife is better.

Great to hear your wife is on the mend, that's what's important! Maybe get a little closer to the food for the photo-op, bigger is better. RAY

cansmoke cansmoke Glad the better half is on the mend. As far as burgers go......,My wife has told me that from now on unless we are in a hurry to eat, burgers are to be cooked in the smoker. Made some pimento cheese stuffed burgers the other day that were excellent.

JLeonard: Tonight I smoked the burgers in the MES30. Next week, I'll take the time to use offset.
