"Cheeseburgers in Paradise"

I thought it was time to try burgers on the egg. So with faithful lump in one hand and trusty hickory chunks in the other I assaulted 6.5 pounds of ground chuck.


added to chuck:

3 very large sweet white onions,
2 pounds fresh button mushrooms
1.5 pounds Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1T Thyme
1T Oregano
2t sea salt
2t pepper, coarse grind
1/4C wine, White Zinfandel
3T Worcestershire Sauce
2t garlic powder
2t onion powder
canola oil

I course diced the onions and caramelized them in a little canola oil. Then cut mushrooms into fair sized chunks and did the same to them. The cheese I cubed to about 3/8" cubes. After onions and mushrooms had cooled everything got mixed in a large bowl and shaped into 4" round, 1 1/4" thick burgers. I measured them with a slightly rounded 1 cup measure to keep size uniform. Made 14 large burgers. As I shaped them I tried to cover the cheese with hamburg in hopes it would not melt and escape. It worked!
Grilled them at 475-500* for 6 minutes a side with hickory chunks for smoke.


For my first burgers I am very happy, they came out medium (I would prefer med-rare but not a big deal), juicy, tender and with great flavor. Just enough char to give them a little extra flavor. Best burgers I've had in a long time.

  • Those have got to be good. I have never tried putting the onion,shroom and cheese in the meat. That will definitely be on the "to try list".

    Those burgers look fantastic!! With that setting and the great food all you need is Jimmy Buffet playing in the background and a margarita in your hand.

    Those look great!  I've never stuffed the cheese/onion/shrooms in the burgers but I'll have to try that as well.  Awesome!

    Those look great and I love all the ingredients you used, so I'm sure I would love the finished product.  Good job.

    Those look awesome - We cooked some at the Buffett concert in Atlanta on Saturday night but they weren't on my egg (just my buddies tailgate grill).  I made the comment while cooking how I need to get a smaller egg that can travel!
