burgers

I cooked these indirect at about 300 degrees. Was going to reverse sear but got distracted so I pulled them at 140. The family doesn't like bloody burgers like I do. They came out good. 80/20 Angus, ranch dressing packet and an egg...topped with Lick.

    How much pink was inside those? I cooked some this weekend and got the temp to about 160 and some were dry while others were juicy. My family is not a fan of pink either.

    Not much...next time I'll pull mine earlier. They were juicy but I like beef bloody. Freaks the wife out....but she wears a hazmat suit when prepping chicken.

    I like a medium burger and it also freaks my wife out. I can't stand well done beef! I like to reverse sear my burgers with some butter about three minutes per side. I let them rest for about ten minutes before searing. Creates a nice crust after smoking.

  • What is "topped with lick"? The Salt Lick seasoning/rub? I love the stuff but never tried it on hamburgers.

    If its not memorable, its not worth doing.

  • Not sure if I'm overly careful, but my thoughts on ground beef is that you have to cook it through to kill all the possible bacteria. Don't get me wrong, I love a medium rare steak, but a good sear on the outside of a steak removes all traces of bacteria, where a burger can potentially have some funk in the inside if it's still pink. I guess if you're grinding your own meat its a different story though, since you know how sterile your equipment is. Maybe it's because I buy my meat from the local grocery store and I have a hard time trusting those teenage "butchers", that they're keeping a sterile environment.

    I like mine med-rare. 1/2 pound 80/20 raised direct for about 3 - 3 1/2 min per side. I know the risk of ground beef, but if it doesn't taste like a nose bleed, it's over done for me! Mike

    Amazing how many different "degrees of doneness" people like when it comes to beef. I would rather fix anything for a dinner party than steaks, because of the different temps.

    I'm a newbie on the egg, but I'm pretty sure that it means this:
