    Okay, so it's Sunday & wifey, daughter & myself want burgers. But not just any burgers. How about something quick & smokey? Yeah! Okay....went & picked-up some 80-20 ground beef, cheese, mushrooms, brown onion, yellow bell pepper, tomatoe & some hot Itailian Sausage. Okay, the idea is to make the patty's with the onion & pepper mixed in. Then add a piece of cheese to the top of it & close it up with another patty. (This idea was both on Man vs. Food & Food Wars, both in MN.) Once my wife & I saw this, we had to have one. Now it is funny because I am not allowed to have regular ground beef. (Wifey don't buy it any more. Sniff) But Turkey, I think would have dried out. So 80-20 is what I was allowed to get. (Don't laugh single guys. Married men understand what I am saying. Your girlfriends too, will turn on you, once you give up that ring & sing, I do.) Anyway, I don't want to bore you all to tears.



    And Sausage.



    Ground beef mixed up with the brown onion & yellow pepper.




    Cut the cheese. (No snickering please.)



    Shot of burger from side to show the thickness.



    Four patty's seasoned with creole seasoning not rubbed. The patty on the lower right is my test patty. It has no cheese inside. I figure I can get my temp on this one to 170 & then give the others between 6 - 10 more degrees. Notice it is smaller.


    Italian sausage not rubbed but seasoned with the same seasoning.


    Needed a quick break before I got started.


    Now...I am two hours into my smoke as the storm was heading my way. I put the meat on at 6:45 PM, PST & took it off at 9:00 PM. These pictures were taken about 8:25 PM. I smoked at an average temp of 195. At the end, I pushed it up to 220 but that is all I could get. It was very windy. My temp thermo is on the left. The burger thermo is on the right. The last thermo is my Sausage thermo. These time & temps were at or around 8:15 - 8:25 PM. I am smoking with pecan only. When the test patty hit 170, I flipped them over & put the thermo in one of the other patty's. It only read 152. Perfect. Time to get them to 170.






    Had to get more lump going. Temps on my smoke were dropping.




    Took this pic about 5 minutes after they came off. Was busy flipping the burgers & loading more lump to bring the temp up.



    Smoke ring shot.


    Finally took off the burgers.


    My daughter moves real fast. Last count said 4. Check out the cheese coming out & that smoke ring.


    Time to finish it up with some mushrooms, Baby Ray's sauce & Bar-Be-Que chips.




    And how does it taste wifey???


    And of course, you can never forget the desert.


    Thanks for looking.

    Great lookin' lunch there Caveman------->>[​IMG]


    First time I ever saw cheese molded between two patties was back in the 60s, in my old hometown--(Quakertown, PA)--They called them "Mouseburgers". They were dangerous. First timers would bite into one, and the internal boiling cheese would run out & burn their chins.


    Thanks for showing CM,

    Those are some outstanding looking burgers Caveman! I think you outdid the ones on that show (I saw it too).

    Who needs a juicy Lucy when you can have a smoky caveman burger!

    You live 10 minutes from Q-town?
    I was born in Richlandtown, and lived there until I got out of the Army. Since then I have lived within 20 minutes of there all of my life (Quakertown, Trumbauersville, Spinnerstown, Coopersburg, and now Macungie).
    That place "The Fireside" was replaced by a gas station many years ago. It was on the West side of the "309", just south of "Franks Beer Stein". It had a 12' wide charcoal pit right behind the counter. They had great food, and it was my home away from home.
    I would say the best place to eat in that area today is "The Country Place", on the corner of Rt 313 & "The Old Ridge Road".

    I know the Country Place well. Great food and you can't beat the prices. Cheaper than fast food

    Thank you. They were excellent.

    Thank you very much.

    Next time, I am adding a fried egg. Thank you.

    Um....Bear.....that was my dinner. LOL. Yeah, the cheese was a concern for me because I did not want to burn my daughter but the temp & meltage was perfect after the smoke. [​IMG] Thanks for looking sir.

    Juicy Lucy. I could not remember that. You saw what I had a break time, right? Thank you sir.

    Smoky Caveman Burger? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm......me likey. UGH!!!! Thank you very much sir.

    [/quote=Wingman;478066]Nicely done there! [​IMG][/quote]
    Thank you. Glad you enjoyed.

    I LOVE blue cheese. Thank you very much sir.
    Thank you sir.

    Thank you sir. I am kind of fond of burgers meself.

    I can only hope to achieve a status such as an artist like yourself. (No, that is not my lips on your butt. [​IMG]) You are most welcome. I am glad you enjoyed Sir as I aim to please.

    Thank you sir. I am glad you likey!

    The flavor of the peppers came through excellently. And since I had that taste as well as onions in each bite, it made the smokey flavor in better. Try it sometime & tell me what you think. Thank you for the compliment.

    Thank you.
