"OH CRAP" is a good thing.

  1. Sunday morning, S/W MI., 35* and a 30mph breeze is enough to make me stay inside and put off cleaning the yard for another day or two. All I was planning on was to enjoy one or two cold ones while watching NASCAR. Then those fearful words came from the kitchen. My wife found a tub of 80/20 she'd forgotten and asked if I'd fire-up my new Pit Boss for some burgers. "YES" but I'd use the Char Griller COS since I just CLEANED the Pit Boss. But the idea of smoked burgers stuck in my head. After some serious thinking-drinking I had a plan of attack. I loaded the side box with some 3 year old hard maple shavings to smolder while I cold smoked the burgers for an hour during which time I lit two small baskets of coal for the grill. After they ashed over I dumping the coals in the grill and closed the lid. 12oz's later I put the burgers back on and grilled as usual. O.M.G. those were the best burgers ever. The cold smoking added an extra flavor that's hard to beat. Now she says that's the only way I can do burgers, fine with me! Can't wait for the weather to break so I can smoke and grill w/ the garage doors open.

    Sounds mighty fine, but a pic or two would help us satisfy our craving.

  3. Chris, sorry I omitted the "Burger Porn", it won't happen again.

    Smoked burgers are indeed the way to go when you have the time.

    No problem, just a friendly jab. My first few years here I didn't even own a camera. Martin you should look into beer-can-burgers. Hmmmmmm goooood - Next level burgers IMHO.

  6. O.M.G. Thanks Chris for that suggestion. Got up at 0300hrs, as usual, been reading posts and watching vid's. It's now on the top of my bucket list to try. It should make some great "Burger Porn"
