    Anyone ever tried doing a 10 tube of 85-90% hamburger with a rub or marinade on it? Thinking of trying this in the upcoming weeks.

    Basically get a 10 tube of ground burger.
    Put a rub on it
    Smoke it
    Chill over night
    Cut into 1" thick patties

    Then whenever you want a good smoked burger all you do is thaw and heat, or throw on the grill or Foreman frozen for a fast smokey burger?

    sounds kind of like a meat loaf...There is a link on here from last summer that someone has pictures of the hamburgers he did. Man did they look good! I would think it would be easier to follow his smoking method (individual patties) and then when the smoke is done freeze them then. When you want one, throw on the grill to crisp up. I'll try to find the link.

    ballagh, sounds like a neat idea. Maybe give it a shot of marinade injection the night before opening the wrapper, rub, smoke and get crazy. Keep us posted on how it comes out.

    Keep Smokin

    A Burger fatty! Could be cool! Maybe you could stick a tube of cheese in the middle!

    This could be great for dieting ... but I only had one! Okay so it was 10 inches long.

    Mrs. Oky and I have an old standby of cutting a chub into thick patties and smoking them as thick patties. When they're done, we re-assemble the chub (reduces chance of freezer burn, and fits in the freezer better),wrap w/plastic wrap and vacupak them. When you want a quick burger, just stick a cleaver blade in between patties, and pop one off. Theyre also great when unexpected company shows up.
