Fresh Ground Burgers

This is prolly boring for some but I got excited to use my grinder I got for Christmas I started with just a touch over 2lbs of sirloin roast image Ground it up. And of course a pic of the new grinder image I made 6 patties and seasoned with Raising the Steaks and Tsunami spin image Decided to make some sweet potato fries. Coated with EVOO,sea salt, cayenne and a pinch of cinnamon These were cooked in the hot box at 425 for 30min image Burgers on the small @ 500 raised direct image Sautéed onions,mushrooms and garlic on the gasser side burner image Of course you gotta toast your buns image And plated image I don't know what the difference is between these burgers and the sirloin burgers I generally buy but the tasted ooooh so good. Thanks for lookin

    Nice burgers. If I may make a suggestion for next time. Grind up a brisket to burgers. The best IMO.

  • Mix in some bacon with the next batch and light those suckers up!  Ground with bacon mixed in is the best!  Gotta love new toys and getting to use them!

    Good job. Knowing that you did it, always makes things taste so much better. Start playing around with some blends now and find what works best for you.

    You said  "sweet potato fries. Coated with EVOO,sea salt, cayenne and a pinch of cinnamon"
     
    I gotta try that!  Burgers looked fantastic, BTW.

    If it didn't have those shrooms all over it I could wear that plate out.

    Those burgers look great.  I have the KA grinder but I have only used it once.  I need to bust it back out! 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I like where you are going with this, but this kinda scares me.  I cook my burgers to medium or so, and I'd be scared of under cooked bacon if I only went to medium.

    I like to throw in leftover brisket or pulled pork - does pump up the flavor a bit.   10-15% of volume is all that I use.

    I'm tempted to return the KA brand grinder I received and pick up the Chef's Choice one.  Thoughts?

    Anyone hate the KA one?  Is it bad?

    We decided on the Chefs Choice because we had read some reviews about metal/plastic shavings getting in the meat on the KA brand. I have only used mine once but was happy with the way it worked and how easy it was to breakdown to clean.

    Mine hasn't given me a problem yet.  My pig guts and pink salt should be arriving this afternoon, so I'll be giving it a 5-lb workout this weekend.  I have read that the plate with the smaller holes isn't worth much, I've only used the bigger holes.

    Other than one more finer grinder plate and double the warranty (2yrs vs 1), anyone know what the difference is between the Chef's Choice 796 and 799?  These are $100 and $150 on Amazon.

  • Im going to try deer burgers on mine tonight.  Ground venison, crushed red pepper, garlic, and some smokehouse maple seasoning.  What temp and how long do you guys recommend?
