Friends BBQ party (one a gas grill)

Went to a firends house for a Memorial Day BBQ. Great company, but wouldn't you know it, burgers and dogs cooked on a gas grill. Well, to keep a long story short, I held my tounge. The truth is ... the burgers SUCKED, they had little to no taste. Hot dogs were ok, maybe even good, but by no means up to the quality of what I'm accustomed to.[p]Just a good reminder of why we're all her on the forum (and egg owners)![p]Smokey

    Smokey,[p]I'm up working late tonight (too much Q'in and hanging out this weekend and spent the day at my parent's house today so now I'm paying for my procrastination!).[p]Anyway, I think a very good burger can be made on a gas grill. My neighbor does them with the cheese on the inside and he makes some really big and thick patties and they always taste great. With the Egg, though, you're afforded the opportunity of insanity temps and can do that whole sear thing and, IMHO, take the burger to "the next level!" Also, I like doing high temp, but not insanity temp, burgers on the Egg. Bring that temp to around 500-550 and you get the benefit of a fast cook and some sear while maximizing eyebrow and arm hair safety.[p]As for dogs, in my short experience I find that the main factor for a good dog is that you get good dogs. I personally prefer those really long Nathans dogs or a good Kosher hot dog. I have no idea for the best method. I just throw em on and they're always great. The only thing that rivals a good grilled dog is a hotdog at Yankee Stadium (or at your favorite team's stadium). There's just something special about the combination of a greasy hotdog with watered down beer in a crowded place that brings a tear to my eye (maybe because the dog costs $4 and the beer goes for $6!).[p]Hoping that your's and everyone else's Memorial Day was a memorial day,
