Humpty Senior got a long overdue grooming this morning including a stiff bristle brush and shop vac. All that remains is an extended high temp burn to complete the process.[p]Instead of wasting the heat, I'm gonna do some burgers for lunch. Never having used anything but straight meat, I'd like to try a more exotic recipe today. [p]Your gourmet burger suggestions would be most appreciated. I have all blends of Char Crust and a pretty decent spice collection and some portabellos and several cheeses.[p]Thanks in advance![p]K~G

  • KennyG,
    I just did burgers last nite & they were great & very juicy. The recipe is not very exotic tho.......[p]Marinate the beef patties(use plain old ground beef, don't use a low fat grind unless you have to for health reasons) in worcestershire sauce for 30 minutes. Remove from marinade and coat patties liberally with char-crust. I turbo cooked at 700F for 2 minutes a side plus a 2 minute dwell, adding a thick slice of jack cheese during the dwell.[p]lns

    Pocket burgers are my favorite. Instead of one big burger make two thin burgers. In the middle of one put sauteed onions mushrooms and a little cheese or what ever you like. Put the other burger on top and seal the edges. Bleu Cheese is good also. They are GRRR...ATE!
