Burger spice rub recommendation

I am having a big get together in 2 weeks and I'm going to make burgers on the egg. I already have a great burger recipe that I always use. However, I wanted to see if anyone could recommend a seasoning to really kick up the flavor. I'll be in Shillington, PA next week and was planning on stopping at Fred's Music & BBQ. I know they have their own line of rubs there. Has anyone used Fred's spices? Any recommendations?

    I enjoy messing around with spices and rubs.  One of my favorite "blends" for burgers and steak is standard Montreal (aka Canadian steak seasoning) to which I addd Emeril's essence and some cayenne pepper.  Really kicks it up a notch or two.  Bam

    If there are 1,000 people on the forum, you'd probably get 975 different recommendations.  Dizzy Pig brand seems to have a lot of BGE followers, and there are several "flavors" of that.  John Henry also makes some good spices.

    Another addition that comes up on the forum quite often is the addition of fish sauce to the hamburger meat.  That brings out the umami of the meat to really "kick up the flavor".

  • Thanks for the recommendations. @ VI, I expected lots of variety in the spices people use. I love topics like this because there are so many things to use. I might learn a few new ideas that I can use for future cooks. I'll keep trying them until I find one that works for me. It must be the teacher in me. I love learning new things!

  • +1 on fish sauce.

  • I do mine just like my steaks.  I use Montreal some, Cowlick, and a couple of others.
