These were actually for Sunday hurricane night, but since that doesn't seem to be happening we decided to make them the Friday cook.

Ground sirloin, about a 3/4 pound patties.  Spiced with garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper.  The spouse and I have different approaches. I like diced onion and tomato slices put on for a few minutes, then shredded cheese.  She likes a slice of onion and cheese at the last moment.

Done on raised grid, 400, for about 7 minutes a side.  Opened to add toppings at about 5 minutes.

Served on Marty's Big Buns with my Atomic Pickles, and she uses mustard (a crime against nature, everyone knows mustard is for hotdogs, ketchup is for hamburgers), while I use ketchup.

Pics to follow.

    I pretty much do that for everything except steaks.  For a number of things, like pizza or game hens, I have followed the sage advice of the more experienced cooks here and started elevating even higher in the dome.

    12oz burgers?  Isn't that kind of huge?  I normally make them 4oz, 2.5-3oz for the little guy (6yo) who rarely finishes his.

    Well, yeah.  Of course that is before cooking, so they were a good percentage smaller afterward.  I do these a couple time a year, they are not everyday fare.  On the other hand I had one, with a smaller pattie I might have done two.

    You piqued my curiosity, and I went to the freezer to look at steaks.  These patties were no more than I would have had with a steak.

    Congratulations on your correct spelling.  My brother in law (a medical doctor) quizzed me on how to spell it (after using it in a sentence).  I spelled it correctly, and that blew his mind.  He said he had asked several high degreed people, such as medical doctors, Ph.D.'s and educators, and I was the first to spell it correctly.  The other obvious wrong answers were "peaked" and "peeked".

    I'm not a snob, but poor grammar and spelling send chills up and down my spine sometimes.  And, I be from Texas ... you know what I'm sayin'?
