Re: burgers
I haven't grilled a burger in a while either.  Although I did smoke a Boston Butt, 4 slabs of baby-backs, 30 ABT's and 6 Armadillo eggs.  Mixed up some outstanding mustard slaw, potato salad, and did kettle beans.  It was all delicious. 

I think I will do a burger one night this week.  I will have to sit and think about what I can do to mix it up for a change.

Re: burgers
Grilled venison burgers the other day. Turned out pretty nice.

I use garlic salt, chopped onions and Dale's sauce. Mixed together good and make nice patties.

Nice lean burger.

Re: burgers
last friday's burger...

instead of grabbing my stash of ground beef ...i took a sirloin tip roast to the butcher for grinding.  ended up with 5 lbs of ground sirloin wrapped as 1lb packages.

made the patties.  in the chinook house we've got 4 sizes of patties to make...dog included.

anyhoo...seasoned the patties with a prime rib rub.  sprinkled worcestershire over the top. 

used the charcoal weber for this cook.

traditional bun.

topped burgers with...

grilled mushrooms
grilled onions

note:  foiled the above with garlic salt and butter. 

vine ripe heirloom-tomato ...stolen from my neighbor.

crumbled blue cheese ...slightly melted.

a-1 steak sauce. 

an exceptional burger.  i'd give this a 9 out of 10.  (6 grillz and a pimp cup)

Re: burgers
I'm no chef.  But here's what I normally do. 


Meat Lean or not, who cares
Egg (or two)
Dales
Lipton Beefy Mushroom Soup Mix
Diced onion
Sea salt
Cracked black pepper
Garlic/garlic salt
Tiger dust (from Academy and just a sprinkle)

Mix all that up and make big ass patties.  Put a thumb print in each one to keep it from swelling. 

Grill that for however long it takes.  It's good if you have a brand to sit on top of them, but that's a lot of brand so I don't always bother.

Grill bacon at the same time. 
Grill pineapple at the same time.
Sometimes grill a portabella at the same time

About two minutes before you take the beef off the fire, get a slice of cheese.  Let burger juice melt it.  Swiss is good.  American is good.  Don't get cheap Kraft singles, though.  They suck. 

I like big buns.  Sweet buns. 

Stack meat, bacon, pineapple and/or portabella on a bun with onion, mayo and mustard on the bottom, ketchup (and maybe pickles) on the top. 

** Never, ever mix ketchup and mayo on the same side of the bun because this is red and white and therefore prohibited **

And never put lettuce or tomato on a burger.  If you want a salad you can get one elsewhere.

Eat. 

If you want fries, the best way to do them is in a deep fry kettle.  Take potatoes (skin on or off) and cut them into circles.  Cut across, not down the potato.  Like enormous chips.  They're awesome that way.

If you want free cheese, look in a mousetrap.

Re: burgers

headed over the cascades to lake billy chinook for a 4 day camping trip. 

on the menu for saturday was burgers. 

stayed fairly traditional with the burgers.  seasoning...coarse black pepper and kosher salt.

took the weber smokey joe with kingsford competition briquettes as fuel.  used this as the mainstay for grilling the burgers but took a couple of patties over the campfire. 
 

traditional bun.

topped burgers with...

all the traditional fixin's
fried up some bacon and eggs...as an option. 


served with potato salad. 

beer choices...kona longboard ale and widmer citra blonde summer brew. 

a very tasty burger.  i'd give this a 7.5 out of 10.  (5 grillz)

You're living in beer nirvana and you're drinking Kona and Widmer?

You should have your OR citizenship revoked.

Re: burgers
J&Rs is across from Kalico, next to Mr Roy's.  They've been known to close from time to time, but are usually open.  If you get the chance, try it.  You won't be disappointed.  How the fudge Kalico stays open is beyond me.  That's some shootty eating. 

I forget the name of it, but if you go just south of Kalico, and take a left and go basically right behind Kalico, there's a little joint that is a bar, but serves a good BLT at lunch.  They may have a good burger, but I've never eaten it.

JR's is no more. I think the owner passed. But it has been opened  back up and burgers are the same!
