Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Did burgers and brats last night, well actually needed cheeseburgers. While the burgers grilled I thought, the cheese slices are gonna be way bigger than the burgers. Next thought was, if I put the cheese on the grilling burgers, I'm gonna end up with a cheesy grill mess. That did not excite me, can't brush off cheese easily.


Since, both hands were busy, one holding a cold beer, the other a turner, I had no way to make cheese slice modifications. Grilling at 102 outdoor temp, I'm not letting go of the cold one(s). My third thought was: I wonder how or when other folks make the change.....burger to cheeseburger. After serious contemplation and couple beer swigs, I concluded my options are:
A. add cheese on the grill and deal with the mess,
B. add cheese when I pull the burgers and hope it melts, or
C. add cheese when building the burger and it won't melt.

So, went plan B, when I pulled and plated the burgers I dropped on the cheese and foiled, letting the trapped burger heat melt the cheese. Here is how the cheeseburgers ended up.......well the lone leftover, the others looked just like it


So when do you cheese............
